Most likely a bad ignition coil. They get hot and refuse to work until they cool down.

SOURCE: 97 YAMAHA YZF 1000,wont start itself after bike is warm

Have you checked the ground lead?

Make sure it is clean, it runs down and bolts to the top right hand side of the crank case.

Sometimes what happens is, that lead gets grime on it, oil or corrosion.. and it doesn't make good contact. The lights, spark ETC load the crank case and frame full of DC.. when you shut the bike off the dc cant flow through the starter so it won't turn over.

after a while the dc trickles out it will let the bike start again.

Hope thats it and it works for you, good luck!!

P.S. how is he liking his ace?? Awsome bike, I have had mine since 1999, and it not about to go anywhere!!

The turn signals are controlled by a "turn signal controller" that is located just under the dash on your bike. If heat is the problem, you may have to purchase a new unit.

To test, see if you can get the cover off that covers the split in your tanks just below the dash. You should be able to see the unit with that removed. If so, buy a small can of electronic component cooler at at Radio Shack or somewhere. Ride the bike until the turn signals quit. Give the controller a quick shot of the component cooler. If the signals immediately start back working, this is indeed your problem. You can either try to figure a way to keep the unit cooler or replace the unit. Cost is about $150 last time I purchased one. Good Luck.

It sounds more like a fuel problem to me. If I had to guess, I'd say that for some reason your bike has started to run lean. The lean mixture is causing your engine to run hot. The heat from the is "perculating" the fuel in your float bowl and causing it not to start. I've seen it before on race cars.

The mixture on your bike may be running lean for any fo several reasons. You could have trash in one of the jets in the carb or you could have a vacuum leak. I'd put my money on the later. There is a hose that comes off the backside and feeds vacuum to the VOES switch. Make sure this hose is intact and doesn't have any cracks in it. I'd also replace the intake gaskets at the heads and the carb seal provided the carb is the original CV carb.

If the carb has been changed to something else, there could be other problems as well. Also, make sure your not running gasoline that has a greater than 10% ethanol mixture in it. The greater the percentage of ethanol (alcohol) the leaner the engine will run.

Good Luck

Why does my 93 Caravan Start fine and run great till it warms up then dies and wont start untill it cools back down.

I had the same problem a few years ago and it was the coil pack breaking down. If it starts missing before it dies id get a new coil pack. Before u buy a coil pack you need to get it warm again and just before it dies look underneath the vehicle to see if the catalytic converter is starting to get hot, if it is hot and usually getting red hot, its stopped up.It will fool you in to thinking that the coil is bad.

Have your main power relay checked. It seems to fail when the car warms up and then starts to work again when the car is allowed to cool down.

My 2000 pontiac sufire dies while driving down the road. if i wait it will start up again. the longer i wait the farther i can go before it does it again. any solution to the problem?


Ignition coil or Ignition control module I would look towards the ignition control module.I had a 91 cavelier do the samething exact same and i tried everything to try and fix it,it turned out that it was the ignition control module. There will be 2 coils mounted onto that plate.It ran good till it warmed up,once warmed up it would stall and spitt and sputter,if left for awhile would start up and go good untill it warmed back up.Once the module would get warm it would quit working untill it cooled down
