I have a 1986 VIAGRO 700 YAMAHA thinking the starter circuit cutoff relay may be bad. Is it possible to bypass so as to check for spark? As is no spark with another relay that turned started over.

Lift bike on center stand, remove spark plug and place in gear and rotate tire to turn engine over while looking for spark.

SOURCE: 01SUZUKI KATANA GSX 600F Bad Starter/Relay Switch~that is the ?

If there is a clicking noise when you hit the starter button, then the relay should be fine.
If there is no sound, check the fuses before removing the starter.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Yamaha Wolverine. When start button

it sounds to me like you have a faulty terminal, check voltage reading to the relay from battery pos terminal, now push and hold button and recheck on same terminal, if it stays at around 12volts check terminal on other side of relay it this is lower significantly than first side replace again with new relay. of both terminals voltage drops you have faulty battery.

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, check 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Faulty starter button.
7. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
8. Security alarm needs a reset.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Yamaha 1997 warior will not start with the starter but will start when you pull start it.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, externally charge the battery and have it load tested. This is to eliminate the chance of a weakening battery.

Offhand, check the starter relay. When the start button is pressed, the relay should click and provide contact to the starter motor. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I have a 2000 Yamaha YZF-R6. The problem is it won,t turnover (run); So i replaced the battery,that didn,t solve the problem. So then i buy a new starter relay,still does,nt run. So then i though,ok what...

First eliminate the side stand starter cutoff switch as the cause by performing a simple continuity test on it. Side stand up, the circuit should be closed (no resistance). Side stand down, open circuit.
With that out of the way, you can test the starting motor by using a large screwdriver to bridge across the two large cable connections on the starter relay. If the starter doesn't spin (and you have confirmed that there is battery voltage to one of the large cables going to the relay) - then you've got either a bad starter motor, or a faulty cable connection between the starter and the relay.

Yamaha maxim xj 700 1985 wont start

Check the wiring inside the headlight case--that's where the wiring for the bar controls are connected into the main wiring harness. Look for loose or corroded connections. Try to get the starter working correctly, then concentrate on getting the engine to run. No-run usually means either no fuel into the cylinders or no spark to ignite the fire. Make sure to keep the battery charged while running the starter for testing.
