Question about 1997 Yamaha YZF Thunder ace 1000 R
My son just bought this 97 Yamaha yzf 1000. Seems like after it is warm,and we shut the bike off,the battery doesnt have enough juice to start it back up again,till it sits for a while,then it will crank it over
Have you checked the ground lead?
Make sure it is clean, it runs down and bolts to the top right hand side of the crank case.
Sometimes what happens is, that lead gets grime on it, oil or corrosion.. and it doesn't make good contact. The lights, spark ETC load the crank case and frame full of DC.. when you shut the bike off the dc cant flow through the starter so it won't turn over.
after a while the dc trickles out it will let the bike start again.
Hope thats it and it works for you, good luck!!
P.S. how is he liking his ace?? Awsome bike, I have had mine since 1999, and it not about to go anywhere!!
