So here's the the deal I have an 82 so far I've replaced the starter changed the oil charged the batter and sprayed the carbs with cleaner after that it started and ran great I went to start it the other night it turned a little bit and then nothing I have power but it seems like the starter isn't getting any power or maybe my starter switch is bad. Any ideas thanks.

So, now that I have a new speedo drive & cable in this beast, I pushed it after church on the way home to see what it would do. Well the crappy thing is she wound out at 50 mph. Being a mechanic I didn't dare push it past 55 for fear of throwing a rod cause this motor was screaming for all she was worth. Its only got 5000 miles on it..
I've had alot of 650's, but I've never had one that wouldn't comfortably run the freeway all day long. Why did Yamaha pull a clueless idiot stunt & not include a 6th gear cause she's seriously lacking ?...
That's funny Sean. The notorious leaky water pump, wrong bolt right hole snafu flipped :-P .
No sense in as custom when I can get EBC & Barnett clutch springs for just under $20. The Barnett springs are 5% stronger, the EBC springs are 10% stronger & $13 + a $16 clutch housing gasket, 5 QTS of oil & a $5 filter.....
The brakes release fine & the wheels spin free & true :-) , thanks...
