Either ... muck in the fuel filter ....


New plugs needed .......


Or ... regulator/rectifier --- do the lights get brighter when you twiddle the throttle a bit? If it does, chances are rect is okay ...

OK its a yamaha so here is a quick guess.


If the bike only restarts once back in neutral I would suggest that its the sidestand cut out switch.


Try spraying the switch librally with gt85 or wd40, if this doesnt help then you can either get a new switch or you can remove the swtich and direct wire it, but this does remove the switch completely allowing you to put the bike into gear with the stand down.

sounds like where you should be strating, sidestand switch wont generaly make everthing go, just cuts the engine, I had the wires in tailpiece rot

and short, to this day cant explain why, so check all whe wires including

behind headlight :wink:

How long do you have to wait till the power comes back?


its definitely electrical cos lights go out so you need to find out where the open circuit is as some one said check in the headlamp it probably has sommat to do with the main earth or positive going open Circuit so look at the main fuse for corrosion.


I suggest open circuiot as a short will normally blow a fuse.

Its definitely electrical and pretty dangerous I would think with it been so intermittent.

Check the fuse holders, give all the wires a bit of a waggle, something sounds loose. Have you got an alarm with an immobilizer? Check that especially the fuse holder.

Do you have a haines?
