Question about 1989 Yamaha FZR 600

1 Answer

Bike wont stay running

I have a 1991 fzr 600 and I accidently killed the battery( new battery) and when i jumped the bike it started well and I ran it for 10 mintues to give it a little juice. I then started to drive it home, but after about 5 minutes the bike just died. no throttle responce, nothing what would cause this. This is the first time I have had any problems with the bike doing this.

If the bikes charging system is not working there will be no power to the coils, and no spark (once the battery is drained). Try putting a good, fully charged battery in the bike and check the charging system.

There are certainly several things that could cause the symptoms you describe. Based on the information you have provided that is what I would check first.

1991 Yamaha FZR 600 fell over

Hi, Matthew # 3 & 4 are jumping up and down holding up signs that say "PICK ME" and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

I just bought a 1991 yamaha fzr 600r and the previous owner said that the stator needed replaced and that's why it wouldn't start . I went to order the part and the parts store said he doesn't think it's...

Install new plugs, the stock plugs are NGK R CR9E. Clean the air filter. Drain the carb float bowls. Now make sure the gas valve is turned on. Charge the battery with a low amp charger, 3 to 5 amp, overnight. Be sure water covers the top of the plates in the battery before charging. Give the air cleaner intake a shot of starting spray when all is ready. Also, don't believe anything the previous owner said. Many repair parts can be purchased at the following website > Please rate my answer. Thanks.

My 1996 Yamaha FZR 600 won't start. The lights turn on, but when I hit the start button, all I hear is a fast clicking sound. Maybe from the digital ignition box. I have tried jumping it from a car...

sounds like the battery to me, have it checked by a sparky, they dont give you much warning before they **** themselves, I had to replace mine only a few months ago

I have a 91 fzr 600 recently did oil change, spark plugs,didnt ride bike for 2 days then went to ride it today and wont start, thought it was the battery so i jumped it and it started but started running...

you will need to try a new battery, unfortunatly sometimes jumping of a larger battery can spike the regulator, so when the new battery is fitted put a mulimeter across the battery, should read just over 12v engine stopped and rise to 13.5-14v with the engine running.

I dont know about using and tester for autos is going to give a correct reading for your problem i suggest you get a volt ohm meter and check the stator and regulator/ rectifier.

I bought a 1989 fzr 600 today and it started fine,ran fine all the way home(about 17 miles)got home turned it off, came out 10 min later and tried to start it and nothing,well tail lights still came on but...

Does this machine have an aftermarket fairing? If so, the wiring that normally connects everything together within the headlight shell may not have been done very well when extended into the fairing shell. The main fuse which is usually only a short distance from the battery and connected into the '+' wire from the battery (not the heavy cable that powers the starter) if blown, kills power to all lights, engine, and etc..
