Question about 1996 Yamaha TDM 850

1 Answer

Starting problems. Probably not battery.

Started the bike normally for a sundaytrip. Drove 150meter to a local kiosk and stopped for supplies. Came back to bike after 5 mins and the starter seems to be dead. Battery seems to be working - all the lights work properly, but absolutely nothing happens when i hit the start button.

SOURCE: push starter button and no start

Hello,
Evansville! Nice part of the World.
Bud's Harley Shop still there?
O.k. daft thing is the off run switch on the handlebars turned to off?
Failing this will the bike start and run off bumping (Push start).
If it does take a look at the battery (Maybe Dead cell/s) or Starter solenoid wire/fuse.
Solenoid is located near the battery it is the cylindrical item with the main pos+ wire from battery going to it.
Good Luck! could do with a new Bud's Harley 'T' shirt as mines worn out.

SOURCE: R1 start problem

I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!

SOURCE: the battery is fully charged all the lights and

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, start with the clutch lever pulled in and/or the side stand folded up.

Offhand, check the 2 wires going to the starter relay. 1 should have a +12 while the other must go ground when starting.

Postback results of above tests.

Incidentally, a 98 XJ600N could be pushed started.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I don't completely understand what you describe. If you are asking does your engine start and stop because of the (start) solenoid, the answer is no. The start solenoid ONLY operates when you press the start button. There is a possibility there is a loose wire on the battery side of your start solenoid ...and that is what I would be looking for, a loose and/or dirty connection.

Bad battery cable can cause these symptoms. Check under the cable covering(trim it back about 1/4 inch and see if the cable looks like copper or is white(corroded). If white it will probably have to be replaced.

If you are starting the bike, warming it up, and shutting it off, You have probably fouled out the spark plugs. When I worked at a dealership we stopped the practice of starting up the cycles for potential buyers because each bike would foul out 3,4,even 5 sets of plugs before it was delivered just because people wanted to hear it run.

Drove bike to gym. Tried starting it 2 hours later. NO GO.


sounds like you may have more than one problem. as far as the fuel......the prime position allows gas to flow continuous without the need of the fuel pump. as far as the 11 volts is that with the key on or off? what are the volts at the battery terminal?
