buy a new battery shelf life is not 2 yrs the only other thing that would have saved this battery is a trickle charger or battery maintainer

SOURCE: Yamaha timberwolf wont start unless push started

You have a loose connection to the ignition system . When cranking make sure it is in neutral. and kill switch is in run position. The only thing dropping would sensibly affect is the fuel system or jarring a switch., but with the suspension you have there really is no jarring. So, I would ck the wiring. something is loose.

SOURCE: yamaha mt 03 will not turn over, shows electrical problem

Hey there. I have had EXACTLY the same problem on my 2008 MT-03. It just died on my 2 months ago, when I wanted to ride back home from work. Symptoms: it felt like the battery was dead. I checked it, it was not. Since it was still under warranty, the Yamaha dealer picked it up, picked it apart in the shop and came with the explanation that the central grounding point of the electrical circuit was corroded and therefore, no electricity could flow, explaining lack of ignition. They 'fixed' it free of charge. Yesterday, WHILE DRIVING on the motorway in Belgium, 120 kmh, my MT03 just totally dies on me. No more combustion, engine totally dead, no more head lights, no more dashboard. I managed to come to a stop without bailing but I could not start it again: same problem as 2 months ago. I have lost my trust in this machine, I think it suffers from some serious problems.

SOURCE: Have 1983 Yamaha Virago 550. Won't maintain charge??

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, even if the the stator / charging coil is defective or for that matter even the regulator, the bike should start and run on a fully charged battery. The only problem would be that the bike would die eventually. If haven't been tried, have the battery load tested not just voltmeter test.

Please postback after the load test. Hopefully by then, I would have the wiring diagram.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
