SOURCE: where is the xt600e earth/ground wire connection

If your negative battery cable has been disconnected, and you can't tell where it goes, anyplace on the metal frame where you can make a good connection will be ok. You will need a sturdy bolt that you can tighten enough.

Left turn signal does not flash when either parking or headlights are on, right signal works ok left turn signal lights are on just not blinking when lights are on, they work ok when lights off

This is usually a bad earth problem, check where the harness earth is then try connecting the earth wire to a different part of the car body in case the rust and Bondo (plastic filler) is so prolific that a good connection is not possible. Then clean all the earth connection point on the globes, the harness connection point, & chassis grounds etc

Yamaha r6 2005 wont start.

Could do with more information maria6666.

Do the ignition lights come on when you turn the key? Battery connected/Charged
Has your red kill switch on the handlebar been knocked off?
Does the starter motor turn when you press the starter button? Battery connection/charge
Does the fuel pump relay click/or fuel pump make a whirring noise when the ignition is switched on? Battery connection prob/poor earth/fault on fuel pump relay
If when the starter button is pressed the it just clicks - battery needs charging.
Has it got enough fuel in it?
Is the fuel tap turned on?

I could go on but it would be easier if you could describe what happens when you try to start it.

Basically, it needs petrol to burn and electric to make the engine turn whilst making a spark to burn the petrol.

Have you any friends that could help you? Are you in a group of bikers/friends who you could ask?

Yamaha Receiver RX-V3800 Rear Left surround click sound

It's possible it is some sort of interference pickup, but another possible I've come across a number of times on Yamahas is poor earth connections via the back panel.

All the circuit boards have earth connections on them and the screws holding them to the back panel form an earth bonding connection. Tighten all the screws on the back to eliminate this possibility. Costs nothing to try and may just solve it.

My yamaha r6 is clicking instead of starting what is it

Starter solenoid jammed. Locate it, near to the start which connects to the negative battery lead. Give it a tap with a hammer (seriously) this frees up the insides. Start the bike. If it still clicks. Check the earth strap going from the starter to the bike frame. Clean it up with emery paper or a wire brush, check other earth leads and do the same.

The starter might have worked itself loose, check the mounting bolts and for any rust inside the slots (if rusted you will need a new one).

If that still does not work, bump start the bike and take her for a run. Get back home and wait a few minutes, try to start it, if the cranking is slow, then new battery time.

I bought flesh mount turn signal and they won't turn on when I push the turn signal, the turn signal comes with 2 wires but I have 3 wires not sure what too do??!!

it would appear that you have purchased signals that require a metal surface to earth your alternative is to run an earth wire from the body of the indicater to the metal frame of the machine this will provide a satisfactory earth
