You can find this information in the owner’s manual of your bike, too. Before starting the bike, make sure you have done the following:
The transmission is in neutral.
The transmission is in gear, the clutch is pulled, and the kickstand/sidestand is stowed. Some modern models, Yamaha included, have a safety feature that will prevent the bike from starting if the sidestand hasn’t been raised.
Next, follow these steps precisely:
Insert the key into the ignition.
Turn the key to the ON position. Make sure the engine stop switch is set to the correct position.
Warning lights and indicator lights should illuminate momentarily then disappear if conditions are satisfactory. These lights include:
Shift the transmission into neutral. The light should come on. If not, you might have an electrical circuit problem.
Start the engine with the start switch.
In the event of failure, wait a few seconds and try another start. Don’t draw out the time trying to start the engine to preserve battery power. Do not extend for more than 10 seconds.
