E Button/Kill Button Info
Posted February 12, 2008 - 07:51 PM
Back home it took me a while to figure out the problem.* When I turned on the "on" switch, the bike would try to start.* When it did start, I could hear the starter motor spinning and the bike would run poorly.* I eventually traced the problem to the e button.* Two plus years of riding and washing corroded the inside of the switch.* Unplugged the e button and the bike ran fine again. Had to use the kick starter for a while - terrible thing.
The point of this thread.* If this ever happens to anyone during a race or on a trail ride and unplugging the e button makes the bike run again, you can use the kill button as an e button.* The plug behind the number plate is identical to the e button plug so just pull out the e button and plug in the kill button.* I am actually using a kill button now on the right side because thats all my Yamaha dealer had in stock. Just be aware that the wires are alittle shorter on the kill button.* FYI
