2000 Yamaha XJR 1300 starting problems

Hi, I am having starting problems. I am having a problem with my xjr it is a 2000sp model, i am the second owner, i have owned it for just over four years. It has never let me down before, and it has always started with no problems. When it is not in use it is in the garage plugged in to an optimate. The problem materialized a week ago. I was just about to start her up, i put the key in the ignition i pressed the button on the key fob to deactivate the Alarm immobilizer,which is a ( META 351A ) I heard the usual beep that lets me know its ok to press the start button. I pressed the start button it turned over but didnt fire up, i pressed again it turned over, but then suddenly stopped turning over,and the ignitian lights go dull. i pressed again on the start button, nothing. I have replaced the starter cut of relay the one by the battery that has 12 pins (part no ( 5EA-81950-00 ) This made no difference. I then replaced the main starter relay with a new one.the one with two small screw in bolts connected to the battery . Still nothing, apart from a loud single click noise, from the starter relay with the two screw in bolts.then if you press the start button again, nothing happens. When i turn the ignition of ,then on again and go through the same process and press the start button, same thing a loud thud or click from the starter relay, and the nutral light goes dull. Anyone got any ideas please... Regards: Nigel Lamb

Hi, Nigel it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.

SOURCE: WHEN PRESSING IGNITION,OIL LIGHT COMES ON, NOTHING ELSE.

Sounds like the starter relay is bad. Lay a screwdriver across the two poles and see if it starts. If the bike turns over, that's your problem

Check fuses. Check voltage. Could be a burned, or just broken fuse. Could be a dead battery. Could be as simple as poor battery connections. If not, perhaps the following will help:

A starter can be tested in a very simple way, by applying 12vdc to the power input, and grounding the case. If it spins, then it's on to step 2, checking connections.

Starters are much too simple to be more complicated than that, but the electrical system can be. Check the circuit between the relay and the starter. Is is a direct wire with no breaks? If so, check the voltage at the power output and input of the relay. If it is good, check the power input and grounding of the starter.

Most new bikes have a clutch switch, and it may interrupt the 12vdc to the starter, without affecting the relay. Same thing goes for the nuetral switch.

Try starting in nuetral, with the clutch pulled. Check the relay for conections that you may have taken off, and not replaced. Same thing for the starter.

SOURCE: 1985 model. I replaced battery,

Check that your Engine kill switch is in the Run position.

Bike must be in neutral (with neutral light showing) to crank starter, if you try starting in gear the clutch switch must be activated (lever in) and the sidestand must be up.
