Question about 2003 Yamaha YZF 600 R thunder cat

1 Answer

Bike is totally dead

I started it, and it cranked and then immediately shut off. Do you think its a fuse? and where is the box. The battery is fine, I have a tickle charger and it says the battery is full.

I would check your main fuse first(the most likely problem).
It is located on the starter relay(should be under the side covers close to the battery)
If this fuse is OK clean up connections on this and battery terminals and check for your 12v at the starter relay.

Come back to me if you have to check further

Man, that's the best description I've ever seen of a problem with a bike on this site. Regrettably, I don't have a clue as to what the problem is but I can tell you that I've read about the turn signal staying on in many instances. I'm an old school biker and mechanic and I don't have any experience with the computer controlled bikes or security systems. To me, it sounds like the security system has got the bike disabled for some reason. This seems to be the case mostly when the battery goes dead and then the owner recharges the battery or installs a new battery. The security disables the ignition system thinking someone is trying to steal the bike and it communicates with the owner or mechanic through the turn signal system. Have you read the owner's manual about the security system? The turn signal staying on constantly may be trying to tell you what the problem is. I really wish I could help more but that's all I've got.

Good Luck
Steve

Yes it sounds like one. OK, find your abttery terminals, one is marked in black cable and the other has a red sleeve near the terminal. Follow the red cabel to a box that contain a 30A fuse, see if this is blwon, which most likely. Replace fuse and now use a trickle charger as car batteries has toooo much amperage to jump start a bike. If you have another bike battery it is fine to jump start, never try using a car battery as many damages can happen. Once battery is fully charged ( normally in 8 hours) try again for your bike to start. Cheers. If good give a return comment please.
