SOURCE: i have a scooter yamaha
If you are using key with red bow to start, then dont use that.Use the key with black bow.-----Disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes, then reconnect the battery and try to start the Yamaha xmax with any other key.The immobilizer light is flashing, that's the indication of wrong key.This light is flashing because its not detecting the key which you inserted in the ignition to start the bike.--------- In you have any other key, then try with that key, but first disconnect the battery for 10 minutes then reconnect and try with other spare key.This will help.------------
Exactly, why this light blinks?--------------
This light blinks if someone tries to steal your bike and uses a different key or method of starting your bike..it wont start unless your key that has a programmed chip is inserted..just a safety/security feature.--------- Or if your bike key chip is got faulty.In the key there is a chip and in the ignition lock cylinder there is a sensor.If that sensor do not detect the key, then this immobilizer light will blink.----------Try cleaning the chip in your key.By spraying wd-40 and then cleaning it with a dry cloth.Also spray wd-40 in your bikes ignition lock cylinder. Spray the wd-40 in the key hole.Let it remain there for few minutes, then insert the ket in the key hole and wiggle it to on and off.Then try to start and see.---------
If the bike starts with another key, then the previous key which you used is faulty and the immobilizer chip in the key has to be replaced and then programmed by the dealer.---------
But if the bike not starting with another key too.Then the problem is with ignition lock cylinder sensor.That sensor in the ignition key lock is faulty and not detecting key.The ignition key lock cylinder with sensor has to be replaced, by the dealer.-----------
In some cases this problem gets resolved automatically after exact 24 hours.
If you dont insert the key in ignition key hole.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

i am presuming it is a four cycle
it could be either your carb your choke or your ignition module
as it is a auto choke if you do not do many miles on it or it has been standing for a few months it may be your choke or you may have some dirt in your carb
if it is a two cycle it will be the same problem
some ignition modules have five wires and some have six wires
so you will need to find that out first
please visit my ebay shop
i sell carbs ignition modules and the choke servo
hope this helps

Make sure the vehicle is balanced on the centerstand. The centerstand is a metal bracket located in the middle on the bottom of the scooter. Engaging it means that the scooter is resting on the front tire and centerstand. The rear tire is raised slightly off the ground.
Insert your ignition key into the main ignition switch. The switch is located on the inside front of the scooter just to the right of center and below the handlebars.
Twist the key to the left, or counterclockwise, to the position on the switch marked Open. If the scooter is not in the locked position, turn the key to the first Open position. If the scooter is in the locked position, turn the key to the second Open position. In either case, turn the key counterclockwise one notch to the respective Open position. The Yamaha Vino Scooter Owner's Manual cautions you that you should not push down on the key while turning to the Open position.
Grasp the end of the seat nearest the front wheel and pull it upward to raise it on the hinges located at the rear. Now you can store or retrieve items from the storage compartment
