08 Yamaha Nytro MTX Won't Start
I'm having a starting problem with my 08 Nytro and I'm hoping someone will have some advice for me.
Here's a little background:
This is my first winter with the sled and I haven't been on it much. I've been storing it outside with the cover on sitting on a trailer, but it does get rained on quite a bit. When I got the sled serviced at the beginning of the winter, they told me my battery was getting pretty low and I should replace it soon.
The sled had been working great early season then I hadn't ridden it for a while. I went to start it about a month ago and it wouldn't start. The display lit up and everything but the starter wasn't even cranking. After trying a number of times, it finally started. I let it run for a bit then turned it off and towed it to where I was going to ride. It started fine all day riding it the next day and I figured it was just the battery getting low so I picked up a new battery.
I just got around to replacing the battery today and I figured I'd start it again to check things out before swapping the battery (it's been a month since it's last start). The battery was totally dead this time... no display even when turning the key. I swapped out the battery, and now I get the display when I turn the key, but can't get it to start. Same problem as before... starter doesn't even make a sound even with the brand new battery.
Anyone have any ideas? Is it most likely my starter is dead? Could storing it outside in the rain have anything to do with this?
