SOURCE: Yamaha xj600 doesn't start
hi m8,, i guess u have a neutral light lit up 2,, u need that to start it as well,, no light and she wont go ,, or try pulling the clutch lever in as u push the starter,, ,if none of that works,, then 1st u can do a quick experiment ,, grab a rubber or plastic handled screw driver, and cross the two terminals on the solonoid, if she turns over then the starter button needs cleaning up, or may have a break in the wire,

SOURCE: Starting problem
You probably need to add water to the battery or the battery is getting weak and needs to be replaced. Water should cover the top of the battery plates. Get a 1 or 2 amp trickle charger and charge the battery for a few hours.
The problem may now go away.
If it continues then put a volt ohm meter on the battery and see what voltage is present when revving the engine. The voltage should be about 2 volts higher than the listed battery voltage, as in 6v now 8v / 12v now 14v.
If not, have the dealer check the stator and rectifier/regulator.
Please rate this solution. (four diamonds would be nice) Thanks!

Sounds like the cam chain needs to be adjusted, it's normal for bigger bikes check a manual for the procedure for your bike. it normally take about five minutes. hope this helps

Did the starter work when it was jumped by a car battery? If so, the problem is probably the battery in the bike. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and have it tested. Usually, they'll test the battery for free.
What is the CCA of your battery? Those big engines are hard to start and you may not have a battery with enough "Cold Cranking Amps" to turn the engine over. The old Harley Sprint (1973 & '74) was notorious for this. You really had to have a strong battery in that bike for he electric starter to work.
Some bikes have wiring that disables the starter if the transmission is not in neutral. Check on this as well.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, if the problem is that the starter motor will not turn when the start button is pressed, determine if there is a clicking sound:
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
