Question about 2008 Yamaha XT 660 Z Tenere

1 Answer

Starting difficulties when bike is parked outside

I have a 2008 model of the XTZ660 tenere. Since last januari it have had difficulties starting when it has been parked outside.
I´ve replaced the sparkplug after the engine was drowned with petrol for the first time. After that it started a bit better but now runs "rough" at variable speeds, like it's holding back in power.
I've checked the drive chain for worn pieces but couldn't find any. I'v cleaned out the air filter.

Anyone an idea??

Dude, forget the spark plug. Check the injection computer. Take the bike to a specialized service. Good luck and ride safe! Dragos, Romania

Bike wont start


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the 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.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

The bike was manufactured in October '09 to be sold as the 2010 model year. Auto dealers do the same. You can buy a 2011 Ford Mustang in September of this year, 2010.

Difficulty starting car- egine cranks but car does


2008 nissan versa should still be covered under warranty. take it to the dealer. possibly the anti-drainback valve in the fuel pump is broken and the fuel lines are becoming depresurized when it sits. this will cause the car not to start until the pressure build up.

My bike wont start


I have the same problem and same model (2008 KTM Adventure 990 S) so injection, not carburator.
I didn't start the engine for three months. I bought a brand new battery. Lights, fuel pump and everything seemed to be ok at the first key turn. But when you try to turn it even more to definitely start the engine, ignition fails. I think the electric engine of the starter is not working properly.
I tried to start the engine driving down the slope and releasing the clutch in 2nd gear at aprox 30 km/h and it started successfully.
I left it idle until became hot (15 min aprox) and the turned it off.
however it didn't start again when trying the ignition button.
Any ideas?
