Question about Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic Motorcycles
I'm installing a auxillary fuse block on a 2005 V Star 1100 and I need to find a wire that only has 12 Volts when the ignition is on to connect the relay to. Where can I find a switched 12 volt wire?
If you check in the fuse box there should be a switched supply in there that you can run a spur off.

Its a bad earth between battery and chassis or starter and chassis

Testimonial: "bournetoride: Your suggestion on earth was excellent. Turns out battery could not pass a load test. No prior indication of failure. "
SOURCE: battery overcharging
Check your regulator/rectifier output is it according to standard.
Is your battery in prime condition as a minimal caopacity battery retention will make the alternator/charger produce a higher output level to quickly charge the battery to optimal state.

If you do not have lights at all, then it is likely a defective ignition switch
If there is power to dash, but engine is not starting, check or jump the kickstand switch. That is probably causing the fault. Use the service manual. You find the diagrams in section 15 at pages 364-365.

The faulty regulator can cause this problem.Get the voltage at regulator checked.If its weak or shorting it can cause such problems.
Also try this thing.Remove the main fuse for 5 minutes then reinsert it.The main fuse located near the battery compartment.Remove this main fuse, wait 5 minutes then re-0insert it then check.Many a times this reset the problem.But if that is not helping then get the regulator( alternator) checked.Also check the battery connections and ground.Anywhere its shorting or getting loose.--------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
