Question about 2001 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
I have a 2002 Yamaha Vstar 1100 Custom.
When I turn on the "RED" on switch, the starter kicks in and tries to start the bike. This happens without pressing the starter button. I took the starter button out of the loop (disconnect) and it will still try to start. Could this be a bad starter? Or can it be a short somewhere in the wiring?
The starter button is used in an open circuit design.
You must press the starter button to "Close" this circuit before the starter will engage. Taking the starter button out of the loop helps support the suspect short. Assuming you kept the starter button wires from touching. :) If not, it is most likely the starter button.
Trace the wires coming from the starter button.
There could be a short circuit. (Same as pushing the starter button). Check along the handle bars and anywhere rubbing could cause a break in the insulation. Try this at night with the lights off.
You may be able to SEE the spark and locate it quickly.
