Question about 1985 Yamaha XJ 900 F
My bike will not stat while starter motor is engaged. First start of the day can take up to an hour and need jumper leads to help the battery by that stage. Once started for the day it runs well and starts relatively easily, but only fires when the starter button is released.
I had the same problem. I placed a car battery in one of the side bags, it was only connected to the starter engine.
Later I found out a much better solution; I replaced the yamaha battery to a gel battery with the same amperehours, it costed about 100 SEK more than an acid-lead battery, but was worth every "penny"

Try replacing the starter solenoid.
