Question about 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Silverado
Bike starts fine, if I release clutch too quickly and stall the engine when I attempt re-start I get no starter engagement. Headlight doesn't dim when I press starter button. Battery voltage was 11.98. After many attempts to re-start the starter engages. This does not happen very often but its my wife's bike and I don't want her stranded. Any ideas? Thanks Tommy
I would seriouly look at the starter clutch, the 1100 yamaha cruiser motors are notorious for this problem way back when the same motor was in the viragos and the xvs 1100 vstars, yamaha have tried to fix the prob over the years but stillhavn't got it right. if it just spins and whirs without engaging the engine, but sometime will kick in engagement, it sounds like your starter clutch is on it's way out. they cost from yamaha around $450- 500 ea plus around $350 to fit you have to include a $30 gasket in all that.
