Engine Shut Off

Recommended Posts

It is not a key problem I thought also at first, Yamaha even replace the switch kit, after 3 times the last with new switch and being 100% sure switch was fully on.
 
There is a problem in Motorcycle,  a lot of people experience that.

Guys,
 
Is there a solution to this problem ?
 
I was planning on buying a used FJ-09 but this is a big deterrent.
 
I don't even want to think the engine shutting off during a turn ...

This intermittent/random engine shut off is still happening. Now, a ticking noise. Sounds like the automatic timing chain tensioner is going out. Oh joy!

Thanks mrlaho !
 
I wanted this bike so bad but I guess it's not gonna happen.
 
It would be good to know if Yamaha decides to fix the problem at some point.
 
Ride safe all you out there !

I had it happen twice when the bike was new. Hasn't happened in the last two years.
 
I probably just jinxed myself...

I have never experienced this in 3500 miles on my 17. I also live in a pretty mild climate and seldom see temps over 85. Wonder if heat is the culprit as has been suggested?

It was around 65 last night when it happened. I sometimes have problems starting the bike when it is too hot but I don't think heat is the trigger for this problem.

I have never experienced this on my always garaged 2015 CA model with 12k+ miles riding in 40-95 degree weather (knocks on wood).
 
One of my Buells had a similar issue only when idling at a stop (idle = angry paint shaker) - turned out to be a bad connection inside the ignition switch. Replaced the switch, never happened again.

I would suspect ignition switch or maybe side stand switch. I feel like Ive read where someone else had a similar issue and it turned out to be a faulty side stand swith.

We had a similar problem with the Yamaha VMax. Our difference was that it makes the bike die but you still have a headlight, dash lights, etc. On this, I'd go with the ignition switch but first I would make sure my main ground is good. OHM it out. That was also weak on the VMax and we had a cmember who made some and sold them. Anyway, I'd go the ground, ignition route.
