Hey everyone!

I'm new in this forum and this is my first yamaha vmax and I love it!

Anyhow now I have problem with starting. When I try to start my bike it turns that engine maybe one or two times but after that there is only crackling sound when starting. If the engine is warm that 1-2 spins will fire it but cold starts have become real problem.

This issue has build up and get worse last months and now escalated to a point where I cant start it anymore.

Tell me what is the possible reason for this? How to fix it? Things to try?
Now only thing what I have done is new battery but it did not fix anything...

A good thing to add to your info is your location below your screen name and your year bike, and if it's a USA-market bike, or wherever it's from, in the 'signature' area, below your posting. That helps people to know things related to that particular model, and your location, if someone is close to you, or for a source of parts.

A good battery is necessary. The 4-pole starter is better than a 2-pole starter (see the importance of knowing your year bike?). The 'can-of-rocks' sound is an indicator of the starter clutch going bad. Ask Sean Morley for info on his kit to fix this [email protected]
