The starter motor is located on the front of the engine. follow the heavy starter cable wire to it. This model has a common starter clutch failure that should only be attempted by someone with much knowledge of this machine. This failure produces a symptom of starter slipping and makine lots of racket when trying to start. The problem is not with the starter motor.

    I tried to start it while I have the battery on a charger since it was a year old and I hear a constant ticking sound under the seat. What could be it since I initially thought it was a starter... Thank you!!!

  • Mike Haynes Jan 07, 2013

    If youn are saying the battery ahs not been charged/bike ridden in a year then it may not be any good and will require replacing. The bike will not start of the battery charger's power and you would hear a ticking sound as if the battery were very low state of charge. Before you go any further get a known good battery hooked up and test. Your whole problem could be the battery.

  • Jing Reyes Jan 07, 2013

    Hi Mike. I installed new battery and still has the ticking sound under the seat which I think is a starter relay. What so you I should do next? Rhanks

  • Mike Haynes Jan 07, 2013

    With the bike in neutral, key on try jumping across the large post of the relay. this will tell the condition of the starte itself. if the bike spins over normallt the starter is good and we can move farther with diagnosis.

  • Jing Reyes Jan 07, 2013

    You mean bypass the relay? How so I jump it? With my charger?

  • Mike Haynes Jan 07, 2013

    yes bypass the relay by jumping across the terminals with a heavy metal object such as a large screwdriver or pliers

  • Jing Reyes Jan 07, 2013

    I will try that and let you know what happens...

  • Jing Reyes Jan 08, 2013

    im not sure which way to bypass Mike, is there an easier way to test the starter?

  • Mike Haynes Jan 09, 2013

    Sure, if you have located the starter use jumper cables to connect directly to the starter. Connect the positive cable to the post on the starter itself where you see the heavy cable connected. There may be a rubber boot that will have to be pulled back. Then firmly touch the negative cable from the battery to the engine case in a spot that will not show as some arching will take place as you touch and it will leave a small burn mark. If the starter is good it should spin normally , if you turn the key on and choke it as you would if trying to start normally it should fire up.

  • Jing Reyes Jan 10, 2013

    Mike, I jumped it and it sparked but starter didn't do anything..

  • Mike Haynes Jan 10, 2013

    Ok, on the left side of the engine by the shifter there are 2 round access plugs with a flats slot in them. Use a LARGE screwdriver and remove the center one(larger of the two). Inside you will see a large nut. Use a socket and attempt to turn this nut clockwise. this is turning the crankshaft. We want to verify that the crankshaft is free and the motor is not locked up. We will go from there after you do this. .

  • Jing Reyes Jan 11, 2013

    Mike, the motor turns.... Woohoo!!

  • Mike Haynes Jan 11, 2013

    Ok so as I remember you problem; All this started with where is the starter located. It sounds like you do have a bad starter because you stated that it only sparked but didnt spin when you jumped a battery directly to it( you did use a battery didnt you? not a battery charger). Is this correct? If so lets verify that your starter relay is good. When you push the button as when normally trying to start, do you hear a click? If so it would be great if you could hook a 12volt test light to the cable on the starter and see if it lights when you hear the click. A starter is expensive so I am trying to make sure you are going in the right direction. Answer all these questions and we'll have the answer.

  • Jing Reyes Jan 11, 2013

    Yes I jumped it with a cable didn't spin then I connected a test light to the starter and hit the switch light didn't come on....

  • Mike Haynes Jan 12, 2013

    If you have connected voltage directly to the starter( positive cable from battery to cable post on starter and negative cable from battery to engine case) and the starter did not spin then the starter motor itself is bad. You did not mention if you are hearing a click. The ckick would be the activation of the starter relay(some call it a solenoid). This is the device that sends voltage to the starter when it is activated by the pushing of the starter button. You MUST find this relay and jump across the two large cable post withn a screwdriver to test it. You had told me you didnt understand this check previously. You must complete this test and report your findings as your latest response dosent make sense to me..

  • Jing Reyes Jan 12, 2013

    Hi Mike. I found the relay with positive and negative post , do I use a screwdriver to connect both? Thanks

  • Jing Reyes Jan 12, 2013

    By the way i still here the constant clicking from the relay... Thanks

  • Mike Haynes Jan 14, 2013

    Yes use a large screwdriver to hold across the post of the relay to see if the starter will spin. i remember you telling me some time ago about the constant clicking. we'll get to that after you tell me results from jumping relay. sorry this is taking so long for you. It really is not that hard to understand once you realize how the components work.

  • Jing Reyes Jan 14, 2013

    Hi Mike. I jumped the relay like tou said and started didn't spin..

  • Mike Haynes Jan 22, 2013

    how many small wires go to the relay and what color are they?

2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado the starter motor is working but the bike won't turn over


Hi, Anonymous your starter motor is not/was not the problem that dubious title goes to the starter drive/Bendix/clutch which is a separate component that is activated by the starter motor it is a mechanical gear driven part that engages the clutch pack to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Very possible the one way starter clutch is about to go out on you, which is located behind the flywheel, Should be repaired by qualified service tech, as it requires removal of flywheel as it is attached to the backside of the flywheel, extensive repair, and expensive as well so be prepared.
