    1999 & 2000 Yamaha 1200xl

    Good batteries on both. No start? Solenboid clicks on one. No clicking on the other at all? Just says start on MDI. Where is starter solenoid on these skis? Any help greatly appreciated. I am stranded with no rides for my kids.

    Starter solenoid inside electrical box.

    Its my understanding that just shorting across the solenoid engages the starter only and not the ignition circuit. I did short across solenoid on both yamahas and the starter engaged and cranked motor but no start.

    My next step is to
    Plug lanyard in, then run a test wire between the green wire and the hot battery lead on the solenoid, then short across the solenoid and see if it will start?

    With the lanyard plugged in, I can also run a test light between the ground on the solenoid and the brown lead and then depree start but6ton and see if the test light lights up? I think this tells me that I have a bad start button?

    When does a bad kill button come into play? Could thid have anything to do with my problem? Is there a way to bypass the killswitch by lifting a wire?

    Sorry for all of the questions but I'm a novice on the waverunners.

    Sounds like poor connections to me.
