SOURCE: Yamaha 650 Maxim Won't Turnover
Make sure the battery is fully charged and the battery connections are free of corrosion and tight. A fully charged 12 volt battery should read at least 13.25 volts. Also check the fuses, making sure each one is not 'blown' and is making proper electrical contact in the fuse box.
If the above items are correct but it still won't crank over with the electric starter, locate the starter solenoid and - using a large screwdriver - carefully touch it across the two large cable connections on the top. If the starter spins over, then you've got a bad starter solenoid. If you've got voltage to the top of the solenoid and the starter still doesn't spin, then you've got either a bad starter motor or a bad electrical connection going to it.

Testimonial: "I did the screwdriver trick and it started to turnover (I've probably got a dead/dying battery too) and it looks like its the solenoid. Thanks!"
there is a sight glass about the size of a nickle directly below the filler plug ,oil level should be midway or close to the top,you should see the oil level in the glass window,if not you'll have to remove the cover and clean or replace the sight glass window....
