Question about 2005 Yamaha YZF-R1
Been riding daily for about 3 weeks and started mins before. now i turn the key on and everything lights up like normal, hitt the start switch and all i get is a humming from under the seat all fuses appear good. after looking onto it i think its the relay humming. not sure what to do now.can anyone help?
Check the battery voltage and connections.check the starter solenoid.see if it has power to it on small wire going to it, when you press start button.(this is the box w/ 2 posts & 2 cables attatched to it)use a 12 volt test light to do this. check cable tightness.SHORTCUT-turn key on,place bike in neutral,take large screwdriver & make contact across both posts of solenoid.bike should crank if everything else is ok. if you tested for power to the solenoid and it was present, but bike only starts w/ screwdriver trick-solenoid is bad.
