Ttr 250

Recommended Posts

My friend has a TTR 250 with an electrical problem. First off, let me say that I dont know much about the TTRs and he doesnt have a manual. I ride a WR426 and a KTM 300 XC, which are both battery free. The bike has a new battery and the light works, but the starter wont turn over (ignition switch is "on"). I shorted the battery to the starter and it turned over, so I am thinking it is a bad starter relay or a short. Also, I just learned that the bike has fuses, where are they located? I think the on/off switch could be bad, so I am thinking about by passing it. Any advise would be helpful.

Thanks

Come on folks...surely somebody has knowledge of the TTR electrical system. It was obviously a bad design to begin with...I mean a key with an on/off switch? However, we need the bike for some beginner buddies to ride this weekend.

There are free manuals here: http://www.yamahaownershandbook.com.au/index.php

This is for a 2001 TTR-250: http://www.yamahaownershandbook.com.au/lib/download.php?f=4PX-28199-26.pdf

No idea what year TTR your buddy has. Look at the manual, or download one for the correct year (not sure that it matters). If you're still stuck, post again, perhaps without saying that the bike sucks, and someone should chime in to help.

Yeah, I suppose you are right about saying the bike sucks. I should keep my opinions to myself. I think the bike is a 1999 model, it has only electric start, no kickstart...hmm, no comment. Thanks for the help.

For testing, sure. If the button is bad, it's a pricey part to replace: SWITCH, HANDLE 2

3LD-83975-11-00 $111.11 at the TT store. If that's the part giving your friend problems, it's definitely worth cleaning it and/or checking/cleaning the connectors in the harness before replacing that switch.
