Question about 1981 Yamaha XJ 650

1 Answer

I have a 1981 Yamaha 650 maxim and when I came home and parked it yesterday it would not shut off. the kill switch did shut it off but i had to take the battery post off to kill the power. I can remove the key and the neutral lite stays on and i am able to start it with the key out of the switch... Help I have taken this all apart to try to find the problem but cant figure it out.

Missing ignition start switch for 1981 yamaha xj650 maxim, what's the amp required to start it? Having trouble finding the right momentary switch to install


Starting doesn't go through the ignition switch it goes through the starter solenoid and the ignition switch controls that solenoid only about 5 amps.
