Question about 1996 Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat
When i turn the bike on to start it the lights come on. Then i press the start button, and the lights go off and it doesnt turn over or anything....There is no click and the battery doesnt seem to be dead.....need help badly!
Just because the lights work, doesn't mean the battery is good. Put a meter on the battery, try to start the bike, does the battery drop below 10 volts? if so the battery has weak cells.
If not, try jump starting the bike.
if this doesn't work, then using the jumper cables, if you can safely attach the positive cable to the starter solenoid and the negative to a bolt on the frame. If this works one of you battery cables is bad, if it doesn't you may need to pull the starter, and bench test it.
I hope this is of some help.
