Question about Yamaha Agusta F4 R312 1 plus 1 Motorcycles
Hi, Jltaylo7176 some bikes get "Sun Stroke" after running fine in the morning then shut off and parked in the sun for a couple of hours on a hot day. You get back on the bike hit the starter button and nothing happens or the engine turns over but will not fire. Then you put the bike in the shade for 20-30 minutes and it fires up no problem.
The primary reason for this phenomenon is faulty wire connections in the Starter and/or Ignition Circuit. You may have a wire connection/component that makes just enough contact when cool to start and run the bike, but when parked and exposed to direct sunlight heat causes expansion and creates an "OPEN" in the circuit not allowing the bike to start. You move the bike into the shade for a few minutes, the temperature goes down allowing the connection to contract and make better contact and suddenly "it's a miracle" the bike starts. I know what you're thinking that Gremlin could be anywhere, and you would be right in that assumption, you can take your bike to a dealer, spend tons of "DRACHMA" only to receive validated nervous emotions the next time you park in the sun, then 1 week later it doesn't start. Start by doing a ground check:
Check the 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. Check all common grounds for the same suspects.
The secondary reason your bike may get "sun Stroke" is vapor lock although this is a rare scenario it does happen.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
Initially, have to inform you, have not worked on one. Being in the Philippines most that I have laid my hands on are Japanese with a sprinkling of Italian but don't recall ever working on a French scooter. Sorry.
Still as you posted "Any advice...", allow me to do some guesstimate:
Pls be informed that due to my current rank and rating, even a Helpful would be detrimental to my status. Should this solution not address your concern, it would be appreciated if you could just not rate it at all. Cheers.

I think you need to take it to your local scooter shop and have the carburetor cleaned and the spark plug changed ask to have the routine service done

Always check the battery connections first because too many times it is a loose connection or battery bolt. it would happen more if you drive it a long distance, or up a hill and the controller over heats or if you are hitting a bump. when the controller cools down it drives again.

you must completely discharge your battery and recharge it three times (you see your battery has a "memory" and, charges half way less each time you charge it) so doing this will "reset" it unless you "burned it out"
