Question about 1995 Yamaha XJ 600 Diversion S-N

1 Answer

My bike just makes a clicking sound when the start button is push

I rode my bike in the rain today and it started to misfire but then cleared itself and was o.k. I made a few stops and the bike started alright but at my last stop the clicking noise started and the engine would not turn over. Definately an electrical fault, but what?
Any usefull tips would be much appreciated.

thanks.

    Don't know what the problem was, jump started it this morning and has been fine ever since starting on the ignition. Got a funny feeling the battery may be knackered though and using the lights last night was draining it. On tick over the battery is only putting out 12.9 volts.



    Cheers for the response though.

If it just clicks, firstly hook up jumper cables to battery, if it still just clicks, it will need starter motor brushes.

Make sure you have not knocked loose the alternator cable. Usually close to the oil filter. Sometimes when removing the oil filter it will come loose and you won't be charging your battery while you ride.

I have a 1999 Suzuki Marauder VZ800. Lately I have been having problems with the battery. Before you say go buy a new one, the battery will be fine for a while, but then it won't be able to turn the bike...


it sound like you may have a alternator discharge problem . Charge the battery take it for a ride when you get back try starting the bike if it starts fine disconect the battery over night then hook it back up the next day if it starts fine their is a draw from something. if it doesn't start you have a bad plate in side the battery discharging it 9replace the battery) if the bike doesn't start after your test ride the the alternator has gone bad or is not hooked up correctly.

No spark at spark plugs and coil has tested good, there is sufficient current at pick up off the cam as well, bike ridden through hard rain and started acting up during ride and eventually shut down 10...


Sounds like the water got in somewhere crucial and is preventing the components from telling the coil to spark.

Don't laugh now, but try hitting any suspect areas with WD-40. I recently learned the WD stands for water displacing. It was initially invented as something that could remove water. But it is flammable so exercise caution.

This is surely frustrating and thankfully it doesn't happen often to Harleys. I sure hope you find the source and get it sealed.

I rode with a group of 15 bikes from south WI to the eagle rehab place up in Minnesota. It rained on us for almost 90 minutes but not one bike quit running. So, when things are sealed as they should be, Harleys can run in the rain.

Hope you get this solved and get back on the road.

Electrical problem with my tre-k 1130


came out of the coffee shop went to start the bike and the battery didn't have enough power to turn over the motor....I pushed started it but it didn't want to stay running once I put it in gear. Last night charged the battery and today put it in the bike and it started right up....rode it for about 45 minutes waited for about half an hour before starting it up again and it started , no problem. I am thinking that maybe it is the voltage regulator or maybe the alternator....can anyone help me out with this? ,If you have a multimeter, you need to test the electrical output of the charging system. (Check the voltage of the battery when the bike is revving at about 2000 rpm) If you don't have a multimeter, the best thing to do probably is to take the bike to an Autozone or similar car place where they will test the battery and charging system for free,,,

Ignition problem


I just got a VR 2000 Enduro but it wont start. It wont even turn when I click the starter button... no sound at all. I jumped it and rode it fine but it wont start on its own. I thought it might be the battery so I got a new one... still nothing. Any idea what the problem could be? Someone told me water gets into the front plug on this model when it rains... would this prevent it from even making a sound when I push the button? Please let me know what you think. Could be the starting switch is corroded or broken. Could be the starter solenoid. Or it could be the starter itself. Maybe a blown fuse. You really need a manual. It'll pay for itself real fast. ,
