I have done a search, but have not found a satisfactory answer. I was at the track last week and a number of people said how much they wanted a magic button. I had to smile as I began to kick start the bike.
I need help!

Last week I tried to charge the battery but it would not take any AMPS so I went to the Yamaha Dealer which after some talk agreed to claim the battery.
Some difference, WOW, I participated in a Endurance event last Saturday and constantly kept stalling the motor (I am not an experienced driver) and all the time used the "e" button and worked like a charm. Now I can even start it cold.
It shows that the bike never had the battery in full working order from purchase date.
So, check the battery. They can seem OK, but then not be so Good.

It will also make the clicking noise when the battery is too low to crank the starter properly. Hope this helps!

Waterdog, do you have any more info on it like a part number or anything?

I might have a answer for you on that clicking noise. I have 2003 model and have had lots of starter problems. I thought that clicking nise was the battery. But after recharging I found no improvments. I pulled the starter apart and found the the copper plates at the base of the electric motors windings get pitted from electrical burns and stuffs the contact with the bushes. I suggest you pull it apart and clean the guts of the starter motor, and use an electrical tester to check that the comutator plates are contacting the windings in the motor.
See how you go.
I have the exact same problem-the starter just 'ticks' soo has anyone else that has had this problem found it to be the battery, or the copper plates as desrcibed above? Ive just been kicking it
