Question about 2006 Yamaha YZF-R1

1 Answer

This bike was layed down while riding, and now it won't start.

The bike looks fine, like it has no real damage. When I started the bike the engine turned over but it seemed like the spark plugs were not giving off a spark.

Any suggestions on where to start or possible problems?

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

What I would suggest then is to bridge the side stand switch. If the switch stays open circuit, it will never start but if you bridge the wires before the switch then the bike should start and have now solved the problem for the interim or you if it does not start you know you have to look elsewhere.

Please get back if you require anything else or give favorable feedback.

Thank you

I have a 883 harley davidson sporster, was riding the bike and road over a bump and bike shut down and won't start


I'd check the battery first. I've seen the post break loose from the batteries in many Sportsters and leave them dead on the road. I've only seen this happen once on a Big Twin. Why? I have no idea. If nothing on the bike works, this may be the problem. If everything else works but it just won't start, I need more information. Does the starter engage and the engine turn over?

Do you have the security system on your Dyna? What side of the bike hit the ground? I would start by looking at any obvious areas that received damage.

Does the engine start and run, or does it try to start, but won't keep running?

If you have the security system, it may need to be put on the computer at the H-D shop and be reprogramed. If the bike hit the ground hard, the module may need replaced.

If you received damage to the controls on the handle bars, I would check for wiring damage in that area.

Everything you mention as not working is electrical, and, if you have the security system, it all runs through there.

I find that the owners manual helps some, but sometimes it takes a phone call to a shop.

Clutch engaged engine stalls 2003 Suzuki GSX-R 1000


The bike has a sidestand interlock that prevents you from riding away with the kickstand down. That interlock is not functioning properly. Could have been bent or moved, unplugged, or perhaps the relay has failed. If physically activating the switch does not work, and connecting the wires with a jumper does not work start looking at the turn signal relay, some bikes have that circuit integrated into the relay.

Wont start


It is common for these to trip when layed over and the contact inside to stick and not re-set. It is a sliding wieght on a curved metal bar. When it slides too far to either side, it completes a ground circuit and kills your fuel pump. Dirt and crud can hold the slider in that postion even after the bike is stood back up. You might want to have a look at that. It lives under the seat on the right-hand side, I believe.... but don't quote me on that.
