Hi, Tee before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries. The following is a list of usual suspects that will cause your bike not to turn over.
1. Ignition Switch is in the "OFF" position.
2. Ignition Switch is faulty.
3. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
4. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
5. 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.
6. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
7. FOB battery low or dead.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Faulty starter button.
10. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
11. Security alarm needs a reset.
12. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
13. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
14. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
15. Faulty ignition relay.
16. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
17. Check for engine trouble codes.

SOURCE: 1989 yamaha tw200 new battery keeps going dead

Take it to the shop and have them test the charging system. That way you don't buy a stator that you can't return then find that the problem was the regulator or the rectifier.

SOURCE: 2008 Yamaha TW200 will not move when clutch released

Here are the possibilities > > Bent clutch push rod, missing push rod ball bearing or push rod, worn out actuator shaft cam, Missing friction disk (5), or pressure plate (4), totally worn out friction disks, clutch plates not installed in the correct sequence, extremely weak clutch springs, stripped teeth on the clutch hub, wrong clutch cable length (inner cable vs outer cable), broken shaft, bent then broken shift fork stems, broken slider gear dogs and a missing shift fork pin.

You didn't say if anyone had worked on the clutch or gearbox so I am throwing in nearly EVERYTHING possible that could create the problem. A little more background and most of the above can be ruled out. Get back to us.

SOURCE: I have a kymco agility 50 and it won't start. It has no power what so ever, the starter won't turn over and the break light won't light when I pull the break. I checked the kill switch.

Check with a multi tester for voltage coming through the ignition switch lead wires + to switch wire - to ground you shoul get 12volt or higher, with the switch off you should have one live (feed from battery ), on you should have 2 or 3 in and out feed (possibly 2 out one for ignition one for light curuit), or disconnect the switch and check for continuity (12v battery wire and a bulb if you dont have a multi tester between each pin on the switch plug when turned on you should get a curcuit when on.

I have replaced battery cables, solenoid, and battery with new parts and still can't get bike to turn over. All power works, lights, etc., but won't start.


Probably the interlocks preventing the start....typically on a Yamaha street bike...

First...is the Engine Stop switch ON (the kill switch)
Is the bike in Neutral and does it show as neutral on the dash....
if so it SHOULD crank....however sometimes a relay hangs up....so try the alternative..
you can start it in gear but only if...
a) The sidestand is up -theres a switch to detect its retracted to its resting place
b) the clutch is pulled in -thers a clutch switch on the lever that detects the lever is pulled in.

If the bike was in neutral but only starts with clutch in and sidestand up, there is an issue with a relay.

If none of the above allows it to start....your tip over switch may be bad, loose connection etc.
Let us know how you make out.

1981 yamaha midnight special 850cc. starter button and kill switch not working but lights etc are working. no power from the start button. battery fully chaged? started after chaging the throttle cable.


If no power going to kill switch check Ignition fuse, sidestand ,clutch & neutral switches.
If all OK suspect the starter cut-out relay

  • Start with a new spark plug. Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Drain the Carb then refill it. Only twist the throttle one time in ten kicks. Extra gas pumps in on every twist of the throttle. Twist too often and flooding happens.
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is the Neutral light on?
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
  • Got gas and is it turned on? Clean air filter?
  • Carb, head and intake manifold mounted tight?
  • Does the carb intake manifold have reeds? What condition are they in?

    Yamaha trx850 bike stopped then restarted no problem following week stopped again this time would not restart--no spark at all been in bike shop for 2 weeks they cant find anything wrong


    If they find nothing wrong then the problem is obviously intermittent and can be very hard to find. Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral wire connection.
    >
    The usual source of intermittent loss of spark is the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. Check for a broken wire at the switch or coupler. Get a service manual and check out the electrical section. Some bikes have a diode controller integrated into the turn signal relay. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. If that doesn’t work, check out the relay.The dealer would / should have load tested the various ignition components. I will assume the ignition system is okay. Check the battery and fuses. Install a new set of stock spark plugs.

    I have a YFM 200 (four wheeler) and am getting no spark. Have changed the plug, it turns over well, where do I go now? I have a 1986 version. Sorry, can't find this under "choose product category", but...


    Check the fuses. Next, check for spark but with a new spark plug. How good is the battery? "Some juice" does not always translate into having enough juice for a spark. Fill the battery cells with water covering the battery plates. Jump start from your car battery. Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

    Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.
