Yamaha Raptor 660r Electrical Problem


Recommended Posts

Ok here goes....

I was riding and stalled out and my raptor wouldn't start up. I found the battery cable had broken off the terminal. I held it on to start it and get it back to the house. I put the battery cable back together and it wouldnt start. I did some troubleshooting and the battery is good, I can force the starter to turn over but it wont start because of the electic circuit not being right. I can not even get the neutral light when it is in neutral. I checked the 2 fuses on the starter block.

Any suggestions?

hey, i just fixed that issue on my 450, it would do nothing but turn for a second and start clicking even hooked to the charger.. that really baffled me, i even got a new solenoid with no luck, but if i bypassed it with a wrench it would fire right up, there is a starter relay tho!! mine was burnt up and causing the low voltage on the trip wire to solenoid!!:confused: that sounds like your prob too. I found one off a warrior that fixed mine!! but from yamaha their only $16 new! i would definately try that first! :wink:

Solenoid is likely, could also be that your repair to the cable does not allow for sufficient current flow. Or maybe the cables are just fried, bad cables will actually act like a resistor. Google voltage drop test, there are alot of simple tests that can be done with a volt meter to diagnose your problem.
