    Follow the plus cable from the battery to the starter solonide cross the two heavy cables with a screwdriver if the starter does not turn this way you need a starter. If it does thers a problem between the switch and the solonide.

If the battery is good check the starter. Try booster cables if the starter still clicks it needs replacing. Also try pushing the bike I'm a high gear to be sure the motor is turning over. Good Luck.

    Am not getting anything when pressing the ignition button! No clicks or anything!! Have put jump leads on the the battery terminals and still nothing!! Yet the all the lights work on the dash and the actual horn and headlights work!!! Could it be the starter switch as when I press it the dash lights go out!

Triple check your work. Something is not connected correctly.

    I've checked the connections and still getting all lights on dash, so power getting through but nothing on the electric start, apart from the dash lights flick off when ignition switch is pressed. Fuses checked as well!! Still baffled! Any help appreciated

    Sounds to me like a bad connection near the starter Enough "drain" to kill dash lights. Or starter is binding enough to stall it. Take it out make sure it will turn properly. If it does then it may need shiming to prevent binding.

How to change battery for yamaha tdm 850


Take out old battery. Put new one in.

Seriously this is one of the simplest things to do on a bike. Locate the battery compartment and the current battery, unscrew the terminals and install the new one. Be sure to NOT mix up the terminals it will ruin your bike.
