SOURCE: 1999 Yamaha Vstar 650 Custom ...makes clicking noise when trned

i use a jump box on mine most weekends when i wanna take it out, i hook the red to battery and black onto my exhaust and it fires right up no problem. is the clicking noise coming from the fuel pump behind the ignition? it should click for a few seconds then stop. if it stays on then you are not getting enough fuel outta the tank, change the fuel filter and if bike had been stored for winter get a good fuel system cleaner, additive type. if in USA get Berrymans B12, double dose get bike to run hopefully let it stand overnight and all should be fine. fingers crossed. if is is clicking from somewhere else like starter or a relay by the battery, check all the ground terminals you can find

Check the starter motor for continuity. I expect the brushes need replacing.

SOURCE: my wifes 650 Yamaha vstar custom's battery is dead. if i charge it is there a starter relay switch that i will need to change out as well? and should i charge it at 6 amps or 12?

If the starter relay is working properly after you install the fully charged battery, and that means engaging when you hit the button, then there's no reason to replace it. Unless you just want to replace it with something better.

Battery tender question

that usually means the battery is at a full charge and the tender automatically turns off to keep from damaging and over charging the battery. Or you dont have the tender connected directly to the battery.

I have a 1999 yamaha v star650 runs great reg maint. But I get 15 min rides then batt goes dead I charge it with a small amp charger/tender shows full charge, turn on the key I hear a few clicks then fires...

Do a hydro test on the battery, replace the battery if below 1200. Check the reftact thing ... bridge rectifier ... for shorts. And of course check the alternator for output.

Where is the battery location for my 2007 vstar 1100. and how often do i need to charge it.

Battery is under the seat. Buy a battery tender and keep it hooked up when not riding in the winter. If you are in an area of the country where you can ride year round then a battery tender is not necessary. Battery will probably last 3+ years if properly maintained. I owned a 2000 V-Star 1100 Classic and it was a fine bike.

Battery keeps going dead

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To your query, there are 2 major components of the charging system:
  • stator - left side of the engine itself;
  • regulator - right side, below the seat; would be behind the chrome cover below the battery.

A common problem with a VStar is burned, pitted or corroded terminal pins/connectors from the stator to the regulator.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Ran fine, shut down for a minute and now no power at all.

Their are a ton of things it could be. I would start out with the ignition switch, when you turn it on does it allow power to pass through? Have you check the fuses? Is the ground tight and clean?

If the previous owner had a key fob on the key I would look hard at the ignition switch first.
