Hi, Michael_auty the following applies to carbureted also fuel injected models and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, 9 volts or lower.
2. Faulty alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
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. Faulty main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Faulty system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Faulty ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Faulty CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, O2, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. . Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
10. Fuel tank empty.
11. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked.

Is there a heat sensor on my yamaha raider that shuts off the bike when overheated


My 2013 model has an engine auto stop system. If the bike idles for 20 minutes, it'll shut down. I'll get an error code of 70. Just restart and the code will clear. Your bike may be the same.

If its only happening when moving and your feeling vibrations in your feet. Check your chain is not to tight. You could also have worn chain and sprockets. If not that then check rear wheel bearings and rear brake pads for heavy ware.
