2002 Yamaha Road Star Midnight replace spark plugs

Would like to change spark plugs myself. How difficult is it to remove the fuel tank to change the plugs. Service to do this is quite expensive and there may be a very good reason why it is.

My 2002 Yamaha Road Star Midnight has no spark


Hi, Jeff orange wires are usually, but not always, power wires and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
3. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and CDI box.
5. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose, check for spark leakage in the dark.
6. Faulty ignition coil, pick up coil, trigger coil or CDI box testing needs to be checked with an ohmmeter at 70 degrees Fahrenheit
7. Faulty safety switches clutch, kickstand, neutral, off/on etc.
8. Faulty ignition switch.

I have a 2000 Road Star 1602cc. Sits up more than riding. Now doesn't want to run unless choke used. Won't move under load. Possible float problem?


Sounds like bad gas, remove carb and clean,the pilot jet(idle) is more than likely stopped up,I would also drain fuel out of tank and replace with new.would not be a bad idea to replace spark plugs.
