Hi David,I suspect your starter solenoid is sticking.The SOLENOID is an electro-magnetic device that when 'charged' engages the starter drive gear,and battery voltage to the starter motor. corrosion,and or low battery charge could be the problem. Best O' Luck

Need to remove and replace starter on 2003 yamaha roadstar silverado 1600


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starter Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test because your battery may have 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amps causing the battery to be faulty and must be replaced, especially "AGM" batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid or starter circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
14. Check for engine trouble codes.

Problem with the 2004 Yamaha Road Star Lost electrical power - Turned on key and run switch... hit starter...Lost all power. All fuses seem to be good. What should I look at next?


Have your battery tested otherwise take an ohm meter or any continuity tester to those fuses. Sometimes looks can be deceiving with fuses.

I can't get the driver seat off of my 2002 Yamaha Roadstar 1600. Can anyone help, please?


Roadstars have a seat lock operated via ignition switch.
Insert the key into the ignition switch. Turn the key in the counter-clockwise direction as far as you can (don't push down on the key...just turn). You'll hear a click release sound from the front end of the seat. The seat front should now lift for you. Sometimes the lock can stick so you may need to push down on the seat front while turning the key to get the latch released.
