Hi everybody.

I just bought a 2007 Yamaha Vaverunner VX 110 Cruiser with only 9 hours.

I cant start it.

When I press the start button sometimes the motor will turn for maybe half a second. Sometimes it does not turn at all. It never fires. I suspected a bad start contact but it seems OK. If I hit the start button 10 times, the engine will turn for half or quarter of a second maybe 4-5 times of the 10 times I try to start it.

The battery is OK. All wires seem OK. I found the black box at the front right of the engine which seems to have the starter relay. I am suspecting this could be causing the problem? The voltage drops when I try to start it.

Please help me as soon as you can if you know whats wrong. The weather is great and I really want to try it out!

I got a copy of the service manual also if anybody knows the right page that has the fix.

Thank you!

Have you load tested the batt, not just volt checked it??? The solenoid is in the elec box, very easy to change but check by shorting it first. What does the battery volts drop to when trying to start it??
