There are a few safety interlocks on most Yamaha street bikes.
The starter circuit will only operate if:
the bike is in neutral and the neutral light indicates this OR
if the bike is in gear (or neutral light not showing) you must have the clutch pulled in and the sidestand must be up (there is a clutch lever switch and a sidestand switch )
The engine stop switch "kill switch" on right handlebar has to be in the RUN position to allow starter cranking.

Have 2001 toyota camry 2.2 , stood without batery fr 2 months now it doent crank think immobeliser problem


First make sure the shifter is in park check if O.K. check the battery voltage Sounds like not enough voltage charge battery or change if too low , if O.K. check all wires from battery to starter.If O.K. try voltage at the starter if that reads o.k. check the starter solenoid if it cranks when jumping the solenoid change the solenoid if still nothing listen for a click if it clicks the starter is stuck. Tap & try again if still N/G & you have voltage change the starter.

Take a spark plug out and turn motor over with starter see for spark if any it's ok if not it is properly fuel pump turn key on and listen for fuel pump it is built into the tank and you will hear it. If you don't theres your problem.

1990 Virago starting problem


These starters work Likrk by binding a roller which grips the crank shft end to rotate it.. If either the roller or the crank end surface wear too much, the starter will turn without grabbing or slip entirely not cranking over the engine.. Repair soon or serious damage can result.

1994 yamaha starting problem


check the starter, smack the side with a hammer while holdin the start button sometimes the solenoid gets stuck... dont wail on it, just a nice few hits with a dead blow hammer....if it works your starter solenoid is going if it doesnt it could already be shot.... good luck.
