Did you check your battery? A good battery should read a minimum 12.6V at rest. Anything lower is no good.

The fact that you said you had to replace the stator and rectifier tells me you were having charging problems which also means your battery is probably shot.

Lost spark, Need resistance readings for stater,exciter coil to see if it went bad, the bike would run fine then loose power, eventually no spark at all? Does this usaully go out on these bikes?


Check your battery first. It sounds as if you have a bad rectifier or regulator. The battery voltage should be about 12 volts when not charging and about 13.3 to 14.5 volts when charging. If the battery isn't charging you will only be able to run on the charge in the battery (which won't last long).

Hard to start when hot


Turn off fuel petcock before you shut down bike. Let idle for a couple minutes. When you restart leave fuel petcock off until it fires. This works for me when its really hot outside. 2007 VSTAR 1100 classic.

Replaced starter relay and stater in yamaha 1100 2001 v star


Charge battery to full, start in neutral, still clicks? Bad ground, or bad connection. Jump starter solenoid with screwdriver,etc. if motor turns over the relay is bad. Chaz Moto DC
