    Engine The Yamaha VXR 2011 Waverunner comes with a 1812cc, four cylinder, four-stroke Yamaha marine engine that has a 86mm x 78mm Bore/Stroke and 1812cc displacement. It has electric start with Transistor Controlled Ignition a/k/a TCI. Today, Waverunner also has a slant detection switch which turns off the engine and oil pumps immediately if it overturns. This protects the motor from ingesting water, and all the damage that can cause. It uses NGK LFR6A spark plugs set to 25 degree BTDC Timing. Yamaha boasts on its website that it is the only high performance, four-stroke configured to use the least expensive regular fuel, an important consideration with present-day fuel prices. Transmission, Propulsion & Steering The 2011 Waverunner's transmission is a direct drive from the engine. The propulsion system is built to deliver power that lasts. It uses a 3 blade, stainless steel impeller set at a 15.6 degree pitch with a 155mm hyper-flow jet pump. The Impeller Housing Liner is stainless steel and the pumps are made with a combination of zinc and copper alloys called YDC30 that was developed by Yahama marine engineers to give extra corrosion protection. There is now steering assist, and Yamaha described it as "nimble." The new hull design contributes to much better handling than earlier models which, Ron Jeremy observed, "Don't turn too great but they slide out easy." Chassis, electronics & Style The Windrunner chassis, electronics and style add a lot. The 2011 model has a Stepped Draft V-Hull with Integrated Bow Spray Guard which, hopefully, reduces the soaking everyone got from earlier models. Yamaha asserts great claims about its NanoXcel ultra-lightweight, high strength material but does not provide a lot of information about exactly what it is. More specifics are available about its multifunction electronic information system which give the operator an easy read on speed, RPM, fuel level, low fuel warning, low oil pressure warning, overheat warning, hour meter, check engine light with self diagnostic function. Never known as a gas hog, Yamaha has introduced a low RPM feature which can reduce fuel consumption by up to 26 percent. Yamaha and safety fans will be happy to know that the Waverunner has not lost it its signature plume, which increases the visibility of a personal watercraft that is worth watching.

I'd check to see if it has a clutch safety switch

SOURCE: Starting fault

There is also a safety switch on the clutch lever that could give the same symptoms.
Another thing to check is the fuse block that has a starter relay built in (hidden) above the fuse compartment. My D5 has the same symptoms and this is the problem. If I keep the starter button depressed for some seconds the relay operates and bike starts.

The bike won't start


Hi Thomas put the bike in a high gear and turn the back wheel to make sure the motor is turning over. If it is try booster cables. If that don't work follow the plus cable to the starter solonide and cross the two heavy cables with a screwdriver if the starter is still not working you will need a starter. Regards Jim...

My 92 600 katana wont start. It wont even turn over, when i press the start nothing happens. the battery is good i charged it up and all the lights work but it still wont turn over.


If the clutch switch, the neutral safety switch, and the side stand switch are all working correctly, then test the starting system. When you push the starter button you should hear a click , so you know the button is working.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Disconnect the two wires that activate the solenoid, test the two wires from the harness make sure the needle on your voltage meter jumps when you push the starter button, this means the button is good. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , the manufacturer does not make replacement parts for the starter.

My 250 vt 1999 turn key on headlights everything works! when I press start button headlight goes out and bike dosnt start, take finger off start button head light comes back on.


Your starter button is designed to turn the headlight off when pushed in halfway so all the batteries electricity goes to the starter. The starter button is a two position switch. The starter button may be either dirty and need cleaning or is broken and needs to be replaced. If you push the button all the way in do you hear a click? If you hear a click by the battery , then the starter button is good. Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. With an old screw driver or a piece of wire touch the two terminal posts on the starter solenoid together. If your starter works now you have a bad starter solenoid. If you hold the starter button and lightly tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, then you probably need to replace your starter brushes they are worn out.

Bike wont start. just clicks. battery is ok. need help?


I assume the engine is not seized and the battery is charged and good. Push the starter button, if you hear a click from the solenoid the button is good. Now , jump the two cable posts on the starter solenoid. If the starter works you have a bad solenoid. If you push the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. If anything else in the starter is keeping it from working you need a new starter , the starter parts are not available from the manufacturer.

Press starter button and hear click sound from battery box bike wont start but i can push it and it will run


Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. If you jump the two cable terminals on the solenoid and the starter cranks, you have a bad solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works, you need new starter brushes. Any other problem with the starter and you will need to buy a new assembly.

Bike wont start. battery charge up ,push starter button all i hear is a clicking sound.


Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have the battery load tested.

Offhand, temporarily jumper the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. If the starter motor spins, then a faulty starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

If even jumping the 2 terminals, the starter motor would not turn, either:
  • starter motor has issues more particularly the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments; or
  • the battery is no longer able to hold sufficient charge.

Good luck and thank you for asking.

Murray 18hp 42 deck wont start


Hi.

The best advice here is to put your battery on charge, and, while it is charging, remove each connection, and clean the terminals back to "bright and shiney". The clicking noise is probably the solenoid trying to pull in to provide power to the starter. There also sounds like the comnnection to the starter needs to be removed and cleaned. If this connection is dirty or loose, it can arc and smoke without cranking. Also, if the terminals at your solenoid are corroded, the motor cannot recharge the battery on the run, and loss of power to the battery will result. Clean your connections, and try again!
This should correct your issues. In extreme conditions, it may be necessary to replace your wire from the solenoid to the starter, if it is significantly deteriorated, but I'd clean it all up first.
Best regards, --W/D--

WONT START


when I tried to start it yesterday it would not start; pushing the ignition causes just one *click* sound and then nothing. The battery is reading 12.65V or so so that seems fine. I did some research and I think it's either along the lines of the spark plug(or ignition area) or maybe water in the float bowls from fueling up(?). I tried it again today and this time there was no *click* sound. I also noticed that the -neutral- and -check engine oil- lights which normally light up quickly at start up take a few seconds before lighting up. Now I think it's more in the electrical section but not exactly sure which area. I'm going to take a look at the spark plug and maybe try to drain any water out, but was wondering if anyone had any other ideas? ,When you press start, the churning sound you (typically) hear is from the starter motor forcibly turning the crankshaft. While the starter is physically turning the engine, the engine is also injecting the fuel/air mixture into the cylinders and firing the spark plugs. If the plugs successfully ignite the incoming fuel/air mixture, the engine will begin turning itself over. If you press the button and nothing happens, or you just hear a click, the starter motor is not cranking the engine. The click you heard was probably the starter solenoid attempting to engage the starter to the flywheel of the crankshaft. The problem is probably the starter. It may be a bad battery. Reading the open voltage with no load on the battery tells you nothing. Put the voltmeter across the battery terminals and read the voltage while holding the Start button.,,,
