Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650
Battery replaced/charged-solenoid replaced-headlamp auto on stopped when this occured-replaced relay that allows light to come on when ignition is on-pulled starter-it turns when hooked direct to battery-all grounds appear good-is there a capasitor or other relay???-low mileage bike-had it running last year till this problem-Help!
I had this problem last year. I was told by a reputable Yamaha service technician that I could "jump" the leads on the solenoid to unstick it. It worked. However, in retrospect, I wish I would have just replaced the solenoid, given that it is a relatively cheap component (~$40 new). Since then, I had the sticking and clicking problem again this past March right at the beginning of the season, and during my attempt to repeat the success, I shorted out the bike because I got careless about what my disconnected wires touched on the bike. Shame on me. So I'd recommend replacing the solenoid.
