    I appreciate the answers guys, neutral light stopped working as soon as the chain came off and will only start with the clutch held on and the kick stand up, could that be a prolem in the relay system from the bike stand

SOURCE: have problems starting yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar

Hi there fellow XVS dragstar owner!

I had the same problem before. It is usually caused by the wrong jets installed. have it Replaced with the standard jets that came with it... this will solve the problem on acceleration. Make sure the fuel and air mixture knob is set to 2.5 turns-out from full close. clean the spark plugs.. better, replace it with a new one to ensure clean burning of fuel. also, use unleaded gas. this burns better.

hope this helps

Hi, Darrensemail the ignition circuit cut-off system comprising of the side stand switch, clutch switch and neutral switch has the following functions:
a. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is up, but the clutch lever is not pulled.
b. It prevents starting when the transmission is in gear and the clutch lever is pulled, but the side stand is still down.
c. It cuts the running engine when the transmission is in gear and the side stand is moved down.
Periodically check the operation of the ignition circuit cut-off system according to the following.
With the engine turned off:
1. Move the side stand down.
2. Make sure that the engine stop switch is set to "RUN"
3. Turn the key to "ON".
4. Shift the transmission into the neutral position.
5. Push the start switch if the engine does not start the neutral switch may be faulty.
With the engine still running:
6. Move the side stand up.
7. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
8. Shift the transmission into gear.
9. Move the side stand down if the engine does not stall you may have a faulty side stand switch.
After the engine has stalled:
10. Move the side stand up.
11. Keep the clutch lever pulled.
12. Push the start switch if the engine does not start you may have a faulty clutch switch.
This check is most reliable if performed with a warmed-up engine.

I have a xvs yamaha dragstar 250, the neutral light is not working since the chain came off and after refitting chain the bike wont start with the stand down and in neutral, will only start with the stand...


Hi, Anonymous when the chain came off it probably damaged the neutral safety switch and it needs to be replaced for this scenario you will need your service/owners manual if you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Yamaha, despair not, for a mere zero $0 you can download another one.

I have got a yamaha xvs 1100 dragstar classic 2005 model. it ticks over but as soon as i rev up it cuts out. what do you think could be the problem ?


check the fuel filters, it sounds to me as though there is a partial blockage which allows just enough to sustain tickover and starves the bike upon rev up. this is the first step to check and the most likely. good luck.

RE: Yamaha XVS650 (2005) Australia I don't seem to be able to start the bike with the clutch in and in gear. The manual suggests that this should be possible. Does this indicate a problem with the "clutch...


Could be a problem with the clutch switch, could be a problem with the kick stand switch. Many bikes will only start in neutral if the kickstand is down, no matter what you do with the clutch.

My 650 dragstar starts fine but cuts out as soon as I engage gear. Have checked the side stand switch and it is working fine. Any ideas?


The side stand switch can work in cojunction with a clutch switch.
It still sounds like a side stand problem, check the wires and plug, use a multi meter to check the switch. If you didnt check it that way.
The switch may work but the stand is not pushing the contact far enough

Does the neutral light work correctly?

Assuming it is not clutch drag with the bike jumping and stalling when put in gear

XVS1100 Dragstar, blue color of hrom pipes outer of cylindar 2.


Hi .... This is a common occurence, esp'ly with aftermarket pipes, where they are made from a single 'skin'. You can buy a special cream/polish solely to remove the discolouring. Make sure both spark plugs are a light tan colour which shows the mixture is OK. An old british bike trick was to wrap thick copper wire along the down pipe to disapate the heat.
