1998 Yamaha Grizzly 600 Starter Engaging w/Key

Recommended Posts

I have a 98 Grizzly 600 that every time you turn the key on the starter engages. I've replaced the starter and solenoid. I've swapped out the ignition switch and unhooked the starter button and it still does it. I need to know if anyone else has had this problem and could offer any advice. My last thought is to completely chase the wiring harness. I looked for a starter relay, but could not locate one. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Thanks

Rock

Welcome Rock

Here is my 2 cents. First i would check the ground to the frame. Plus see if you have a exposed wire some where.

Sounds like the starter is being used as a ground path... I don't rem if those have a starter relay or not- it will show up in an online parts catalog- if it does they are usually right next to the battery. Good, clean battery connections? Yamahas very rarely have harness problems, but chasing some wires with a continuity meter would not hurt...

Service manuals on ebay if you dont have one already.

let us know how it goes

good call Bio

Thanks for the info brother. I finally chased the wire and the wire from the starter button was grounded to the frame under the tank. I just cut out the old wire and replaced it with a new one. Works great! Thanks for all of your help and everyone else that helped also.

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.

      Problem: The ATV starts and runs at idle perfectly. But as soon as I open the throttle, the engine starts to slow down until it stops. On the attached video you can hear the sound of how it works: see video below
      Prehistory: there is a Polaris Sportsman 500 1998, which for about 1.5 years stood in repair, including also replacing CDI with one taken from the same ATV. Finally, the vehicles were on wheels, traveled several kilometers and overheated - forgot to fill the antifreeze Came back home in small moves. The next trip started well, but after 10 km there was a feeling of a small drop in power (even as the vehicle got warm completely) but still drives. Next trip - the situation is repeated. The next test of ATV through time and a huge loss of power from the very beginning. The engine sneezes, does not want to go more than 5 mph.

      What has been done: the carburetor has been replaced with a new one (inexpensive, $ 40), a new spark plug, a new ignition coil, the engine head has been removed, the piston is in good condition, valves were corrected - but the problem was definitely not in them.

      Ignition control unit is suspected. Who faced similar? Please help in solving the problem.
      Thanks in advance.

      I just got a 1991 Yamaha Moto 4 for my son and I am looking for a service repair manual. I know that the timing chain needs replaced.
    • By alexcross324
      Hi all, I try to find this manual in the threads but you have a lot of stock here
      Cannot find this particular manual.
      I found it for YFM200 but not sure if they are the same.
      Thanks if you could help me with that.
      Im new here so if I did something wrong, please tell me.

      Hi everyone,
      I have a question, if the starter clutch gear looks fine but is still not working correctly then all I should need to replace is the one way bearing, right?
      thanks,
