I have a 06 m109r which drags when try to start. I've even went and put new plus in it but it's still doing the same thing. Can someone help me get my baby right.

Dragging starter. First check the battery cables. Clean them or replace them. Also check the other ends of them. Then replace the starter.

The problem I'd we thought the fuel pump went out put a new one on it and it wasn't the problem the starter is dragging it has been for about a month could it be the tumblers or starter

need more info. the starter dragging could be the shoes inside the starter literally dragging on the rotor in the starter. the tumblers would cause the key to not turn. sounds to me from the info given you have a crank but no start situation?

Yamaha starter clutch

Starter clutch is behind the alternator rotor. It should turn only one way. If it is bad (you'll have to take it out to see) it will turn either way.

Starter draging

Either you have a voltage drop to the starter, OR the starter needs to be shimmed as it might be to tight against the Ring Gear when engaging.

Lights will go on but when trying to turn on engine sounds like the battery is completely dead and wont start

You can have the battery checked. But if you have bright lights when they are on then it sounds like your starter is dragging. replace the starter.

Starter dragging problem

You added an extra ground but did nothing with the positive cable. It's time to replace that one, possibly using better quality cable then stock.
