Youre sprauge clutch has most likely failed. I can include pics if you want. It is behind the alt rotor, actually bolted to it. You will need a puller to remove it(watch the direction of the fasteneres, if there is an "L" on the bolt it is reverse thread)
This assumes that the chain or gear is not stripped. There is also a gearbox in the starter, but I have never seen it fail.
If you want the pic let me know.
These clutches fail all the time.

My 83 Honda shadow 750 vt won't start it whirls, it has a new a battery and have check gas lines. Pls help

The whirling your describing sounds like your describing a whirling starter that's not turning the motor, the starter is just spinning internally. Bad starter if so. Check the teeth on the flywheel if u pull the starter too.

Find the starter fuse on a 1978 honda 750 k

That's a CB right? I used to own one, but I'm embarrassed to say I don't recall ever locating this fuse. You can find it by tracing the thick cables from the starter solenoid or the battery. My model was a little different, but I do remember it having fuses in some weird places.

How to fix a locked or stucked engine on a 1982 kawasaki kz 750 ?

I guessing by the year of the motorcycle, the engine has siezed from sitting rather that an abrupt malfunction. One possible way is to use a product called Areokroil from Kano Labratories. ( ) If you can remove the spark plugs, try pouring an ounce or two in through the plug hole into each cylinder. Even better if you can remove the heads. let that sit at least overnight or more. Depending on the severity of the siezure, it could take awhile. Then leaving the plugs out, try turning over the engine slowly by kick starter if you have that option. Do not try electric starting as that will probably cause more damage. Good luck.

Cant find fuses to switch starter

The fuse box is located behind the left side cover. Look for a black rectangular plastic box just under the flasher relay. That box opens up to reveal the fuses.
Hope this helps
