Question about 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
Hi, I have a V star 1100 2005 bike. I have had the bike for about 1 year. Ran fine until late last summer when it started having a problem starting.
As soon as the engine cranks over there seems to be a loud mechanical ping from the the starter motor (I think). It does it 1 in 15 or 20 starts. I was dealing with it until recentlty it got much worse. The final straw was when I went to start the bike and it went to turn over and just seized up. I let off the starter and tried again and it started fine.
At this time I broke out the manual and dove into the clutch side. I took out the the starter clutch which appears to be in perfect condition; no signs of any damage. I looked at the starter as well and it seem to be fine.
I have been advised by a dealer that I may have a detonation problem??
I have been at this for a while and am coming up short on ideas. Once the bike starts it runs good. Just the problem starting.
Any help is appreciated.
This problem occurs on too much starter cranking i.e. the engine doesnt respond or fire up at a go.
Try to check the bike's spark plugs.
Probabley it needs a good tune up ( the bike).
