Question about 1997 Yamaha XVS 650 Dragstar

1 Answer

Cannot diagnose source of electrical fault

Year stated is incorrect. System would not accept "1993 Yamaha Drag Star 650 Classic". Bike is on UK "k" plate.
Bike has been standing for some time. Keys lost so ignition barrel had to be ''modified'' & rewired. For some reason the parking light was on constantly even when the ignition was turned off, so parking light wire was not reconnected to ignition barrel assy.
Flashed solenoid to free up. Solenoid tested and working. Starter motor stripped, cleaned, tested & working. Starter button tested & working Kill switch tested & working Battery poor but holds enough charge to rotate starter once or twice with solenoid terminals shorted. No dodgy connectors or broken wires evident, despite thorough search. All other systems (fuel pump, full / dip beam lights, brake lights, indicators, horn, etc) work fine. All fuses checked & ok... but bike still wont turn over with or without stand up and / or clutch depressed.
No power between starter button and solenoid it seems, even though testing of that part of the harness shows proper current & voltage.
Ignition in ''on'' position shows ''engine'' light on H.U.D which goes out after a few seconds. (Not familiar with the exact meaning of this light)
Possible causes / solutions? I'm at my witts end with the thing!

My 1999 Yamha Vstar 650 Classic will not go into 5th gear, or does it only have 4?


Hi, Blackhawks70 it is a 5 speed and you should be able to shift into 5th gear with the engine off by rocking the bike back and forth for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
