You may need to check your cables to the starter for high resistance. They are 28 years old, and can get more resistant over time.

New tdi starter weak turns slow


Sometimes battery cables can short the circuit; try getting them away from any metal or each other.

Briggs & Stratton 331777-1372-B2 engine when trying to start , it is like the starter dragging, motor turns slow (like wanting to lock up) but may start and always runs great when it does start. Starter...


Need to adjust your valves.....they are a solid lifter system that comes out of adjustment from time to time. Its a complex matter and if not done properly can damage camshaft.

1999 nissian frontier quite running mechanic says its distributor again. we spent the 600 or so dollars on a new one approx. 18 months ago whats up? is this a common nissian problem or a common me


Slow cranking will make it hard to start this is not anything to do with the distributor but either a lazy starter motor or a failing battery ,put a drop tester on the battery and see if its ok if so then use a heavy duty induction amp meter on the earth lead and see what the starter motor is drawing ,if more than 180 amps then starter is the problem

Bike started fine then after shutdown starter won't turn over engine.Even with new battery.Motor never got hot.CLICKING SOUNDS OMMITTED FROM BATTERY AREA. WHEN KEY IS TURNED ON.


The clicking tells you that the starter button is working.
Take off your side cover and locate the starter solenoid. You can follow the positive battery cable to it. Touch the two cables bolted onto the solenoid together (you can use a piece of wire, a jumper cable clamp, or an old screw driver) if the starter turns over you have a bad solenoid.
Hold the starter button and gently tap on the starter with a plastic hammer. If the starter works you probably need to rebuild the starter by putting in a new set of brushes. If there is anything else wrong with the starter you will have to buy a new one . On most motorcycles parts (other than the brushes) are not available, all you can do is replace the assembly.

Will not turn over with new batterie


check battery voatage with a volt meter. After verifying 12v or better at starter, check power at starter cable terminal and verify ground at block is good. Then put volt meter across both battery terminals and try to start car. If battery voltage shows 9.5 or less while attempting to crank, change starter.
(make sure that there is 12v at the starter trigger wire with key in "start" before replacng)
(By battery "hot" you mean it's charged, not getting hot, correct?)

Starter dragging problem


You added an extra ground but did nothing with the positive cable. It's time to replace that one, possibly using better quality cable then stock.

R1 start problem


I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!
