    ok il have a look on the frame rail when i get back off work but i no there definatly wasnt a black box under the seat thanks

  • Anonymous Jan 29, 2009

    thank you all for your replies, i have not found a battery however i have had luck with the horn (nearly) i took the switch appart and noticed it was quite corroded i cleaned up the contacts and am now getting a faint horn noise when i press the button so im considering replacing the swtich. Thats if you can actually buy the switch as a seperate part, i noticed its not a case of disconnecting the switch from the loom becuase the wires come straight from the loom so im guessing id have to just re-solder them on to the new switch. Where would be a good place to buy Yamaha parts??
    Again thank you for your help!

    according to this pic, your bike is suppose to have a battery (#23 in the pic). see pic for location. look here to see if previous owner put in a large capacitor (battery bypass) instead of a battery.

    or just the electrical:

    Near the side cover, perhaps? Find it yet? Battery, fuses?

  • Philip M. Alexander May 11, 2010

    Hey Steve,

    Ok quick question. Did you look under the seat for a small 1"X2 1/2" black box which houses the fuses? If not located there the fuse may be on the frame rail just below the seat.

    Good luck

    the steering is either really loose or really tight and when i go between 10-15mph i feel unbalanced when i go around a corner. Ive dismantled the bike, and i cant seem to find any problems with it. What should i do?

02 wr250 stator rotor came apart and shot a peice threw the case.shut down with kill switch. Replaced stator rotor Try to pull start, nothing but headlight shines bright any tests to suggest

Hi, Larry and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.

I have a 1992 yamaha seca 600.Bike was parked for 2 years.I cleaned carbs 2x.Bike idles fine ,but when I give it a little throttle it dies..Please help...I bought this thing to go to work..Ive put a lot of...

Sounds like you still have a fuel delivery problem...How did you clean the carbs? The jets, pilots, floats and circuits in these carbs are hard to get throughly clean. I use a small steel guitar wire to clean with...A tiny pin hole in the diaphram, or dirty or stuck choke circuit will cause problems.The floats need to be set correctly... I recommend an ultrasonic carburetor cleaning for best results. Consider installing carb kits, they are not very expensive and come with new jets, float valve needles and gaskets...The bike has been sitting 2 years, did you service the fuel petcock and flush and clean the gas tank?
Also the carbs need to be "synched" after they installed...all matched and in time with each other...check for vacuum leaks around the carb boots and cylinder head...check all the vacuum lines for any cracks or leaks....Check all your electrical connectors for signs of corrision, if they are dirty, clean them, they should all be shiny. Check your grounds, the main ground from battery to frame is a problem area... where it grounds to frame usually rusts and cant be seen until you remove it...A clean electrical circuit will provide you with a hotter spark at the plugs and improve performance.

These are good bikes, just take your time and go over it. She will be back on the road again in no time. I hope this helps---Good luck with your bike!
