2006 Yamaha Roadliner starter crunch and whine noise
Hi, Anonymous you may need a new starter clutch and I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

2006 yamaha roadliner overheating
if it has an electric fan to cool the radiator, it may be a coolant temp sensor, fuse , relay or bad fan
the clue to the problem is when driving in the rain, the water from the road is cooling the radiator so find why the radiator fan is not working

Rattle in third gear is this a common fault
PLEASE contact me. I have a '06 Stratoliner S here in Woodbridge, VA. Yamaha is currently taking my engine APART to figure this out. They are MUM on this issue but there are dozens of complaints about this according to a few online bike forums. Call Yamaha Motor USA and tell them you have this problem and want it fixed!
I'm tired of bike manufacturers not acknowledging their fudge ups! Many others are having the same issue:

Wont turn over
The most likely cause is a blown main fuse, which can be found in the positive battery cable. Another possibility is defective wiring, such as a loss of ground. Check to make sure the wiring has not been damaged by rodents. Also be sure that the negative battery cable is properly grounded to the frame or engine.

The solenoid has two main heavier wires one from the battery the other to the starter. There are usually two smaller wires that come from the start switch that activates the solenoid. If you are having problems with the starter switch not activating the solenoid you can (but with caution) use a screwdriver to go between the battery and starter wire on the solenoid this will engage the starter and will help you see if your starter is working. The solenoid could be defective.

I have a 2006 roadliner and the speedometer quit
First check to make sure your needle sweeps when you turn the Key on. If it does not then make sure everything else works Fuel gauge,indicator lights odometer. If no then check for power to the unit the factory wiring diagram shows what wire this is. If everything else works and you have power. Is your odometer clicking off the miles you ride? If NO! check your speed sensor. If YES! It sounds like your speedo motor is dead. Hope this helps
