Question about 1996 Yamaha Royal Star XVZ 1300 A
Ive had this bike since the day it came out it has over 200,000 miles on it and up till about 5 months ago ran perfect. i started having problems with the battery posts wearing out. well i replaced the batttery and before when i turned the key id get power and here the fuel pump clicking as normal but now im getting no power what so ever. ived checked the fuses and ran the wireing to make sure it just isnt wear and tear and a loose wire but it all looks in tact. please any ideas would be appreicated its riding weather!
Hi, Sonia 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, check 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.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
10. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

1. #1 test. Obtain a 12 volt circuit tester, the type that looks like an ice pick with a wire coming out of the handle. With ignition on, hold the tip of the circuit test against the post of the coil, the post that is marked with a + The light in the tester should light up, meaning you have battery power. If you don't have electrical power there, trace back to battery to find out why. If you do have power at that point
2. Moving the the opposite side of the coil and place the tip of the tester again the post marked with a minus. With the key on, crank the engine. The light in the tester should flash. These 2 test have just tested your battery and ignition system. Bill

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, pls try recharging the battery again. Remove the connector to the voltage regulator. Start/run the bike. If it lasts more than "3-5 minutes" then you have just confirmed a defective regulator. The voltage regulator would look something like below image.
This page may give you additional insight.
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

i have a 04 yfz 450 quad. the compression ratio like yours is extremely high. ive had my battery go bad and found that another battery other than factory would turn over the engine, but would not start. i paid the 100 dollars for the factory battery and it fired right up. because of the high compression you need a high cranking battery.

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem
Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya

I am having exactly same problem. re starting, battery and fizzz. At the bottom of the carb on bikes left side is s screw. get a glass or old clean jam jar, place the thin tube in jar that comes off the bottom of carb, turn screw. petrol should start flowing into jar. let out about two egg cups full into jar. re tighten screw. hold jar up to light. what you have done is remove any water from the carb. you should see any water floating below the petrol. NEED I SAY DONT SMOKE WHEN DOING THIS . The fizz i cleaned all the contacts of any white deposits around bulb holders in the indicator arms.tightened the wiring conectors. Removed and dcleaned the indicator switch.
