Where is the starter located on a 1985 xj700 yamaha maxum?
Well I'll just tell you this if you're standing on the left side of the bike facing the gauges look straight down you're going to see the smaller round cylinder type deal that has two bolts in the top of it not the side but the top of it you pull those two bolts out then the starter will slide right out after you unhook the wire

1998 Suzuki VZ 800 Marauder running on one cylinder
I have a 2004 Suzuki Marauder that is also running on one cylinder and had a little bit of oil in the rear air filter container, this is what I've gotten out of the situation on my end I've tested both distributors going to each spark plug which I have also changed both spark plugs. One of my coil packs is dead but when I switch them around it is still the same coil that is dead meaning it's not a coil pack issue it is most likely the dreaded CDI which is the doohickey that tells the solenoids to shoot electricity at the spark plugs unfortunately replacement CD eyes are rare and expensive
2007 Suzuki drz400sm fuse box location
not told what is dead, why? skip the #1 evidence.
what if there is fuse for what is dead.

2009 V-Star bike won't start after washing
I suppose that water under pressure was used. In this case ,may be some water found its way into an interlock sensor or the stop switch and that's why the starter refuses to work.

If you need more help with this, let me know. Good luck. ...I am having a problem with coolant leaking out of the overflow. I have checked the radiator, water pump and hoses. No leaks there. I have 2 theories. First theory is the head gasket. I have not checked that. The other is the thermostat. When the coolant is cold the overflow is almost empty. When it gets hot the overflow is full. I have replaced the coolant and the overflow is full again. Any ideas?More than likely the thermostat is not opening up, when the coolant gets hot and the engine is running, the thermostat should open and the coolant should flow from the radiator to the motor and back, causing the overflow to empty out, now when it gets ... 1995

2007 Yamaha Virago taillight doesn't work
All vehicles built after 1927, for road use, must have a working tail light.
Yes it has one, probably needs a new bulb or reconnect the socket on the mud guard.
