    98' XL760 Won't power on

    Hey guys...
    I'm working on this 98' Yamaha XL760 and can't seem to figure it out. It won't power on at all and I'm not sure if I should check the start switch or I also saw in the manual it has a "lighting solenoid", but I'm not sure if that is in the right direction. What's the easiest? Check for power at the ign switch?

    Try this first: with the batter connected and the lanyard in place push the "Mode" button. I had this exact same issue last week after disconnecting the battery. After pushing the Mode button, it may say "Code". If it does...try pushing the "A" button 4 times and it will likely say "Start". Report back if this works!

    Sorry it took me so long to reply but YES it did work! Thank you very much. I had to press the "MODE" button along with the "A" and "B" button simultaneously, but because of your suggestion I just started playing around with the dash and it responded.

    should only have to hold down the mode button for it to ask for the code
