I go to start it...no power. Couple more time trying to start, power comes on then real fast click click sound twice. Whne it made click click sound all power would be lost again. After couple mins of no power, I pull clutch in and I have power. Then try to start it, click click and no power, at all. Literally like no battery was in bike. My time reset but odometer didn't. it read right mileage. I took off sate and side covers. I traced the click click sound to around the 2 fuses and I guess relays. It didn't come from the ecu/computer or whatever you call that big box. Sounds came from behind battery by the 2 fuses and I guess relays. So I tapped around with my finger all around that area, and bike started up again. Shut it off and it did it again. Tapped around more...and haven't had a problem since. I was on vacation for a few days and no problems after all that. Now im back from vacation im trying to think about it all, and wonder if its a known problem. Bike is only a year old

I'm with cs, eliminate the battery as a source of the problem first.

99percent sure its not the battery. No power to full power a few times then it doesn't happen since a week ago when it happened a few times in a hour. Plus why would pulling in the clutch lever all of a sudden give it power. I also never tapped around the battery. Tapped around the fuses and relay. I asked someone else and they think its a relay

My guess is the battery is not working properly (not holding sufficient charge), or a loose connection with the wires that connect to the battery or the starter relay (the thing making the click-click noise).

If the battery can't supply enough electrical power to that starter relay, you will hear that click-click noise.
No matter how good you think your battery is right now, have a motorcycle service department at your local Yamaha dealer load test your battery to determine it's condition.
Doing that and checking the tightness of the battery wire connections are the first things I'd do.

Just be sure to do this:

When you solve the problem, report back in this thread so we can learn about what happened.
Most guys fall off the edge of the Earth and we never learn what the problem was and how it was solved.
Tends to hinder people from making suggestions in the future.

I'm 99% sure it's the battery until you're 100% sure you've tested it with a charger and voltage meter against Yamaha specs.

1) Wait 30 minutes or more after the engine stops.

2) Disconnect the positive battery terminal.

3) Measure voltage across the battery terminals.

4) A fully charged battery should read 12.8 volts or higher.

13volts when off, 14volts when running. I just checked it with my trustworthy reader. I just checked it a few times. The other day it was hard to start, it was barely running while still holding in starter button and tried twisting throttle to get the revs up, like it was only idling a few hundred to 500rpms, then it idled correctly. But it hasn't done what I described since the start of thread/topic.

Maybe a starter thats dragging and not spinning fast enough or at all. If its stuck maybe that is the clicking noise.

Guess what just happened again, of course as I was leaving from work....and like a month after it did it....

Pounded on side of bike and power would come back on but wouldn't start because power went out again. Did it about 5 times, last time I pulled in clutch and front brake and shook bike as I hit starter button and it started...

Are the battery terminals nice and tight? The same for the wires that go to the starter relay and starter motor.

I went through everything and the battery terminals didn't seem 100percent tight when I used screwdriver to tighten them to see if it was them. Hopefully that helps. But I don't see how those could of came loose

At the top of this sub forum there is a Sticky called something like "Bike won't Start, Try This"

Check that thread out. If I remember right there is a connector up around the radiator that can come loose at times.
