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??

Can u verify that its in neutral? I have an 86 Moto4 that is a dog to get into neutral without rocking it for a while

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 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.

      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, just picked up a MOTO 4 YFM255 and want to replace the rear brake pads. How do I get to the back. Guessing I need to remove the brake disk, question any easy way to do this?
      Thanks
