Question about 1997 Yamaha XVS 650 Dragstar
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!
TRY A TO BYPASS ALL SYSTEMS WITH A POSITIVE LEAD SHOULD WORK BUT YOU NEED AT LEAST 9VOLTS TO GET THE IGNITER TO EVEN THINK ABOUT LETTING THE COILS HAVE ANY POWER TO EXPLODE THE GAP POINT OF YOU'RE SPARK PLUGS SO GOOD LUCK
