Question about Yamaha Royal Star Tour Deluxe Motorcycles
Okay.....I think you have a sidestand switch problem.
Do you notice that if you leave it in gear after it stalls....that even with the clutch in it won't crank the starter?
The sidestand switch is a plunger that presses in when the sidestand is down. The interlocks on the RS require that to start the bike...with the sidestand down, it must be in neutral. If you place it in gear which the sidestand down, it kills the ignition to prevent riding off and snagging the stand on the road etc..
So if you had the sidestand up before placing it in gear.....since the bike sat for a year...I suspect the plunger for your sidestand switch is stuck partially in (its been pushed in for a year!)
Find the switch down by the sidestand pivot....have someone hold the bike or support it so you can raise the stand, and spray some WD40 on the plunger and work it in and out letting it snap out several times then try it again.
