Starter solenoid...

Would fused wires on this cause the bike to stall and for the bike to lose all power? Cluster, headlight, ect goes off.

I started to separate the wires that were fused, obviously they will need to be replaced.

Upon doing research on here IF I can't find an MV block the Yamaha FZ600 uses the same one, not sure where I'll find the white wire clip yet though.

Great source for all things wiring related.

And YEP !!! that's the one that kills your bike. Interestingly, same thing happens on Jap bikes. Just at another connector to the alternator, not usually the starter relay.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Randy, you need to clean and replace that connector and repair those wires.

The larger diameter (lower gage) wires carry all of the starting current for your bikes. AS such, they heat up quite a bit. This is a known problem area and regular inspection is required.

The solenoid itself is probably fine. If not, I have two of them sitting on my workbench...they were at the Gap with me in case this happened to someone.

Thanks for the info Chuck.

Ironically this started at the Gap, but was during our very last ride. She got me home and did not leave me stranded like those damn Duc's did to some people...

Went ahead and ordered the Yamaha solenoid, the white .250 connector, and the Hi Cap starter circuit upgrade kit from http://www.motolectric.com/makes/mv_agusta.html

Since I am going to be in there messing with these wires might as well upgrade them!!

I firmly believe that this issue is caused by the individual female connectors inside the white plug getting loose, then the increasing heat from the bad connection exacerbating the issue.
I have increased the length of the cables on the 4pin plug, to ensure that there is no tension on the connector internal parts from vibration etc. It has not been an issue for around 35000km now.
