    All the lights turn on and "neutral" light is on to indicate it is not in gear. The light to let me know the kick stand is down is on. The headlight is on. If those lights are working, doesn't that mean the battery is ok? When I drove it from the shop, it was fine. I put gas in it and drove it about 10 miles before the engine stoped and I had to slowly bring it to the side. I let it sit for a bit and it started again.
    Last night I just sat on it and kept the kick stand on, kept it in neutral, and started it for about 3 minutes and then the engine light came on and it started to stall and turn off. It sounds like it is going to start but does not. Im not sure what a relay or solenoiod clicking is.

    HI,

    DO YOU HAVE AN ANSWER FOR ME YET

  • liz_biginter May 20, 2011

    THANK YOU. I WILL ASK THE TECH TO TAKE A LOOK AT IT AGAIN AND ASK THESE QUESTIONS. WHAT ABOUT THE FACT THAT I STARTED IT WITH THE SIDE STAND STILL DOWN. IT RAN FOR ABOUT 3 MINUTES LIKE THAT BEFORE SHUTTING DOWN AND THE CHOKE NOT WORKING EITHER. THE SHOP SEEMS TO THINK IT MIGHT HAVE SOMETHING TO DO WITH THAT.

Has the fuel tank been checked for rust or contaminated fuel? Is it loosing spark when it stalls or running out of fuel due to blockage or fouled fuel in tank. I need you to find out what is happening that stalls the engine before I can even begin to help. Also you will need a good set of motorcycle troubleshooting experience to check this, if not take it back to the technican and have him fix it right, you paid for a fix, now demand the reapir be done correctly.

    I would replace the battery and check the cables to it for corrosion, motorcycle batteries have a very short life span due to the compact size, and I have had many that worked the lights but would not crank the engine at all. You will also need to check the battery charging system to verify the battery is getting charged from the Alternator, the Voltage at the battery with the engine running should be around 13.6-14.2 Volts DC with the engine running at around 1500RPM.

    I read your reply about the lights come on and you think the battery is ok, I would still verify the Battery cables are clean and tight and free of corrosion, and that you have the battery load tested. The starter motor draws about 75 Amps, and if the Battery is low it may go open internally at the post when you put that kind of a heavy load on it, this is common in motorcycle batteries. Also as I mentioned you need to have the battery charging system tested (Alternator) to verify it has enough output to keep the battery charged up and handle the electrical system loads. A good alternator should put out 13.4-14.4 volts, this test is run with the engine at 1500RPM. This bike is new to the market and is made in Taiwan, very little technical information is available on it, i.e. other owners complaints and problems. I would take it back to whomever did the service work, if it is a reputable repair shop they will take a closer look at the problem and do the Battery and Alternator tested as a courtesy since you paid them to already to fix the problem, they missed something here.

    Have the shops technican look at the side stand starter cutoff safety switch, it may be the problem, this switch is supposed to not allow the starter motor to engage whenever the kick stand is down, it is safety device. I am sorry I missed that, this may be the source of the no start issue that plagues you right now.

  • yadayada
    yadayada May 20, 2011

    You could look under the bike at the switch and see if it is broken or the wiring is damaged yourself. The switch is located right at the side stand pivot on the frame. It should have a plunger that is depressed when the side stand is up, that is the most common design.

Hi

The oil light is for low oil pressure. If your bike is not running then the light should be on as the engine has to be running to develop oil pressure. Does the motor turn over when you try to crank?

However it sounds like two problems, electrical and mechanical. 1. Check your battery and see if it has any power. One question about this, can you hear a relay or solenoid clicking when you try to crank it? If not then your rectifier could have give shorted out.

2. It sounds like the clutch has let go. (Hopefully a clutch and not a gear or bearing.) Another mechanical failure could be a broken cam chain or chain tensioner, but this is unlikely since the engine was running until you came to a stop.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.
Thank you for contacting fixya.com

Hi, Saisoku this happens to a lot of bikes and different brands it is usually caused by water getting into the fuel system and/or moisture getting to electronic components, wire connectors, wiring harness. This situation usually clears itself by letting the bike sit for a couple of days in the sun. For more information about your question please click on the blue links below.

Why do mobikes do not start during rain


Monsoon has begun and its time for our beloved machines to go into hibernation. So many of us will use [or rarely use] our cars/bikes in the monsoon.

Bajaj bikes are more prone to rust than any other bikes in India. So I have to be very careful when I leave my bike covered/uncovered for more than 2-3 days in the rain. The wheels start rusting. Every 2-3 days I have to use a white powder to remove the rusts. Now its not possible to do that all the time. I have tried using the *"brown" anti-rust. But then after a week I realised that it is useless. The wheel still rusts, but u do not realise it unless u touch the area or the rust comes off.

1999 Chevy Astro van will not start after sitting day of rain


Have the resistance checked on your ignition wires! When it's wet, the wires break down or don't allow enough voltage to get through to the plugs. Therefore the spark is weak & the van won't start. You may have to change them. Good luck!

Bike has been sitting for more then 5 years.


I hope it was sitting inside and not outside. This will be a real project bike for you. Bear in mind that your 'free' bike may get costly. The following are general thoughts.

  • If the bike has a kick starter is it froze up or will it rotate the crankshaft? If it has only an electric starter, remove the bike battery and run jumper cables to the battery leads. Will the bike turn over using a car's battery?
  • Do the clutch and throttle cables work okay?
  • Can you shift up and down through the gears?
  • With car battery hooked up, does it have spark?
  • Shoot WD40 into each cylinder. Be liberal with the WD40.
  • Change gearbox oil. Disconnect the chain.
Does this bike have fuel injection or carburetors? CDI ignition or points? How bad is the rust inside the gas tank? Have you checked the cost of the following items?
  • New chain. New front and rear sprockets (if needed)
  • Battery
  • Carb rebuild kits (if carbs are there)
  • Upholstery
  • Tires
  • Throttle, clutch and front brake cables
  • Speedometer cable
  • Rear view mirrors
  • Title changeover, License plates and insurance
  • Electric starter (if needed)
  • Fuel pump (if injected and if needed)
Get back to me on this bike. I would like to see what you find.

Bike turns over but wont start.


The problem with a bike sitting around is that the inside of the tank rusts and the gas drys up leaving a very unwanted residue of varnish in the carbs. The repair is going to be a bit of a project and very frustrating.

Remove and drain the gas tank. Remove the old petcock. Clean the rust out inside of the tank as best you can. Install the new petcock AND install an inline fuel filter.

Next, remove the carbs and disassemble for cleaning. I would spring for carb rebuild kits but only if it looks like the carbs can be saved. Often, abused carbs just need to be trashed and replaced. If you have never balanced and syncronised four carbs you are in for a very frustrating day. I am serious here > keep a fire extinguisher handy.

It's likely that the cost of fixing the bike will be more than the bike is worth, especially if you pay the dealer to do the repair. Your bike is 27 years old and most dealers will not work on anything more than 10 to 15 years old. Parts availability is a problem as well. Even if you get it running, what shape is the gearbox in? Are any of the shift forks bent? Is the clutch operational? This bike is a total shot in the dark and a risky investment at best.

I hate to be the person to tell the bad news but I would hate it more to see you put money and time into lost cause. I have the tools and experiance to fix bikes > I wouldn't want to touch this one. Best wishes anyway.

Please rate this solution as a "FixYa" to the problem if you feel I have answered your question adiquately.

R1 start problem


I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!
