It is the starter clutch. About $50.00 to replace. No need to buy new starter.

SOURCE: Won't start

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, let me run a couple of ideas you may want to try, check, explore or consider based on most bike designs:

  • new battery - does the neutral and/or oil light lit up when key switched to ON;
  • if no, main fuse blown normally 30 Amps, loose battery cable;
  • if yes, is there an audible click when START button press;
  • if no click sound, starter relay faulty;
  • if there is clicking sound, check with voltmeter if +12 is present at big wire going to starter motor while START is pressed;
  • if none, starter relay faulty;
  • if yes, starter motor faulty (stuck up, probably carbon brushes);
  • is Engine RUN switch ON;
  • try with clutch in;
  • exercise side stand;
  • does the bike have an alarm/security/immobilizer.
Pls get back results.

A favor, I would rather that you please do not rate this solution (yet). Due to my current rank and standing, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my rating.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

SOURCE: 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!!!!

SOURCE: Replaced battery, bike cranked, after riding 4 miles, just ticks

check battery leads (both ends) , Then make sure battery is charged 100% (verry important) Get out your (Digital) volt meter set it to DC volts Connect leads to the Battery, it should have at least 12.6 v , Watch meter and start engine, if meter drops below 10.0 volts your battery may be weak and will have to be replaced, or your starter is'nt mechanicaly efficient and will have to be fixed or replaced. While engine is running note voltage should be 12.6-13v volts, then rev engine to 3000 RPM , meter should read 13.5- 15 vdc. If not you have a problem with your stator or regulator/rectifier.

Willnot turn over.battery good and at 100%.fuel pump kicks on and relays by fuse panel click when trying to stat


The click you hear is the starter soleniod. My guess is that either the starter is bad, or the soleniod is bad. Try jump starting the car for the heck of it. If it ends up being one of the other 2 things, make sure the person tests BOTH the starter, and soleniod. A starter is a LOT more money, and lots of times they'll make you buy a starter, even though its just the soleniod!

Yes, you need to check your charging system. First remove the battery and fully charge it (overnight) then refit, and start the bike. With the engine running at about twice the idle speed check the voltage at the battery. It should be approx 14 volts DC. If it is lower than 12.5 you should look first at the voltage regulator and rectifier. The symptoms you describe lead me to believe your charging system is the culprit. It may also be be your alternator, but check the regulator and rectifier first (cheaper)

Want to get a service manual for a 1986 harley fxr low rider


The Harley FXR Super Glide Also known as FXRS turned in to the Dyna Lowrider, Either way the proper term Is FXRS. Non the less, Harley service manuals during that time was not year by year like it is today. Here is an example of the exact manual you will need.

http://www.latus-harley-davidson.com/Harley-Davidson-Service-Manual-for-1984-1990-Touring-FXR-Models.htm

You can maybe look on ebay or craigs list, though it may be more rare than we think.

Hope this helps.

My car starts w/out key. When I put my batterie (new) in it. Trys starting over and over I started it and it stared but still the starter keeps firing. Also the batterie conecter seems to be magnatizing...


This sounds like something is amok in the starter, disconnect the small wires and test again with the battery hooked up. IF still an issue, replace the starter, if the starter not activated, check wiring to the starter soleniod for faults or crossed wires.
