Question about Yamaha Motorcycles
Hi, Isdonisgoodo I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

You added an extra ground but did nothing with the positive cable. It's time to replace that one, possibly using better quality cable then stock.

Two things come to mind, other than an internal problem with the starter. Diconnect the battery and take the small cover off the solenoid. pull the plunger and spring out and check the 2 internal contacts and the copper washer on the plunger for a badly burned or worn condition. Rebuild kits are available for some models. If not, you can dress up the contacts and the washer. Push the plunger in by hand and see that it hits both contacts at the same time.
Another possibility is the starter clutch. Usually when these fail the starter spins without turning the engine over, but I have seen them cause the symptom you described. Replacement involves removing the starter and dissasembly of the drive end of the starter, but since you were savvy enough to take the initial steps you mentioned, I know you can handle it.

doulbe check the grounds, & you might need to add and extra ground wire to the bike, closer to the starter. This should help. There is a valve that release the compression when you kick it off.You might see if you can pull this release the compression valve while pushing the start button????

take the starter off and look in at the flywheel to see if the teeth are in good shape if not the fly wheel needs replaced...if they are in good shape then the solinoid may be bad on the starter...take it to a electric motor shop they will likely test it for free
