Hi, if you don't hear a click then your best bet would be to replace the starter relay. It's a $5 part that goes out often. The relay is what makes that click. When you hit the start button, 12 volts goes to the relay. This tells the relay to switch on. When on, a connection is made between the battery and the starter motor. No click means no connection between starter and battery.

On second thought, before buying a new relay you can test the voltage going to the relay from the start button. If you aren't getting 12V then you have a problem with the wiring. Check the connection at the button. If that is fine, check for broken or smashed wire.

If that doesn't work, I would trace the wire from your start button to your relay and look for a break or a loose connection....

Headlight on 1988 Yamaha Virago 250 does not work


Hi, Anonymous if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out, blinking, or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Sounds like your regulator/rectifier or your CDI box. I would think regulator, because the bike is still running. Check to see what your charging system is putting out. If it is low, or really high it is the rectifier.
