Yamaha moto 4 will not start?.?. Neutral light will not come but revese will.

Recommended Posts

I have a 1987 yamaha moto 4 225. Trying to start it and i am running into a problem. When i go to crank it, i turn the key on and the neutral light will not come on. I try to start it and nothing. However, when the lever is back in reverse, the reverse light comes on and also the head lights work.

I know that the neutral light bulb is not out.

Any Ideas??

Yea it is in neutral. I am it sure if the CDI is bad, a broke wire, bad connection or what.

i had the same problem with my big bear, it turned out to be a wire, like 2 strands and wasn't making a good enough contact. my safety switch is located on the foot shift side, on the top of the motor/transmission. my light never went on before i fixed it too ...

Thanks. I'll try this. Is there anything else that I should look for While checking the stop switch?

i would just check all the wiring well. what looks good may be very brittle and have bad grounds or connections. check all the plastic connectors and clean them as well. good luck !!

      I bought my big bear in 2009, never had a bit of problem with it until last year. It quit starting but still would click when I tried to start it. I replaced the solenoid, the cdi module ( it was burned on one corner) and this year replaced the battery. I have all lights but still will not start and I do not have the clicking when I try to start it. Can anyone give me any ideas what to try next? I haven't had any luck finding videos about the 2008 Big Bear. I'm trying to avoid the expense of sending it to the shop.

      Bevinsee P15D H6M LED Headlight Bulb For Kawasaki ATV KLF220 300 KFX400 KVF300
      I'm looking at replacing the headlamps on my 2001 KLF 300.  These LEDs are out of my experience range.  Supposedly they are "plug and play". 
      What problems am I not aware of? Other controllers, ballast? 
       
      Thanks, Cavry.

      I installed a LED bar, but have yet to wire it in. Would like to wire it into light switch circuit for low beams, assuming it will stay on for high beams also. I am an old fart so am looking for an easily accessible place if possible. 

      Other concern is current draw. It takes 2 amps. So wherever it goes, the circuit has got to handle an additional 2 amps.
      Any help will be appreciated.
