Question about 2007 Yamaha Road Star
Problem solved, I removed the stator cover and discovered scoring on the stator cover, the damage was from the starter idler gear being compressed against the stator cover, the damage is minimal so i lightly sanded the area back smooth and reassembled the bike with a new yamaha stator cover gasket and that fixed it. come to find out the starter idler gear pin is clearenced to the stator cover, the gasket is required to maintain proper starter idler gear pin to its mating hole clearence, you cannot use rtv or any other sealent the gasket is required

Man, I feel your pain mate. As for the epoxy, the guys should've done it. Probably takes a couple of hours extra to bake it. Too late now. The starting issue really sounds like a bad battery. Have you tried jump starting it with your cage? Even though the battery shows fully charged, it may have taken a beating when the charging system gave up the ghost. Try jumping first just to test.
