Hi David,I suspect your starter solenoid is sticking.The SOLENOID is an electro-magnetic device that when 'charged' engages the starter drive gear,and battery voltage to the starter motor. corrosion,and or low battery charge could be the problem. Best O' Luck

Hi, Deberrybest whether one, some or all of your gauges go dark immediately or after a few minutes of riding the usual suspects are:
1. Blown instrument fuse.
2. A bad ground in the gauge circuit.
3. Faulty wiring before or after the fuse.
4. Faulty wiring or connector between the fuse and sensor.
5. Faulty wiring or connector between the sensor and gauge.
6. Gauge sensor has failed.
7. The gauge has failed.

When you push the starter button you hear a click , so you know the button is working. Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , the manufacturer does not make replacement parts for the starter.

Yamaha starter problem


From your description of the failure of the starting system the starter solenoid and the starter clutch is what I though of. It is possible the new starter clutch is bad also. their is TSB about the starter system on this unit.
