Question about Motorcycles
Bike had been starting pretty well in the upper 20 degrees lately. Till the other day. Tried to crank over and stopped when i saw that the light would dim slightly trying to start it. Took battery off later that day and put it on trickle charge over night. Battery was jut purchased about a month ago. Put freshly charged battery back in and all i get are clicks when i push the start button.
Make sure you got your terminals tight. then if so its still your battery not charged, just push it til you get jogging speed jump on put it in second pop the clutch it will start let it run about 20 to 30 mins should be enough charge built in your battery to restart it, if not your battery is bad even though its fairly new could be low on water inside it !

If u havn't checked the battery with an ohm meter, do so. If the meter reads 12.50 or higher start looking at your starter. The solinoid would click and a bad starter would nothing. You could try tapping on the starter with a small hammer while pressing the start button. If it starts or at least turns over, u need a starter.

Try to jump start the bike, 2nd gear down hill key on and let the clutch out... If it starts you have a starter problem, could be the brushes.. good luck...

sounds like the problem is your battery is not charging when you are riding. The most common cause is a faulty regulator / rectifier. Contact a motorcycle wreckers for these parts, or your yamaha dealer.
Easy way to test is, when your bike is running, and the lights start to dim, before the bike shuts down, using a volt meter, test the voltage at the battery terminals, should be about 14V. If faulty rectifier,no charge going in to your battery, then the reading will be low, about only a few volts. If you dont have a volt meter, then any mechanic shop can do this test for you. best to have this done before buying any parts.
