You may need to check your cables to the starter for high resistance. They are 28 years old, and can get more resistant over time.

Adjusting valve on a briggs 446677 _e1.__24hp.harde starting


valve clearance should be .010 " inlet hot and .012 exhaust hot
that is .254mm and .304 mm
valve clearance has nothing to do with hard turning over of the engine
if it turns by hand then fix the starter motor , battery leads or battery
the biggest problem with B&S motors is the valve stems which from new tend to stretch reducing the valve clearance when hot thereby making hot starts difficult if not impossible until the motor cooled down

Sometimes battery cables can short the circuit; try getting them away from any metal or each other.

Will not start, battery is new, it just clicks and nothing. turn it off, try again and nothing, try again and it starts


Try cleaning and tightening well the battery connections along with the battery wires to the solenoid and starter motor.

Bad connections and low voltage of 12 volts can result in this anomaly.

Briggs & Stratton 331777-1372-B2 engine when trying to start , it is like the starter dragging, motor turns slow (like wanting to lock up) but may start and always runs great when it does start. Starter...


Need to adjust your valves.....they are a solid lifter system that comes out of adjustment from time to time. Its a complex matter and if not done properly can damage camshaft.

XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin


sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

1999 nissian frontier quite running mechanic says its distributor again. we spent the 600 or so dollars on a new one approx. 18 months ago whats up? is this a common nissian problem or a common me


Slow cranking will make it hard to start this is not anything to do with the distributor but either a lazy starter motor or a failing battery ,put a drop tester on the battery and see if its ok if so then use a heavy duty induction amp meter on the earth lead and see what the starter motor is drawing ,if more than 180 amps then starter is the problem

Starter dragging problem


You added an extra ground but did nothing with the positive cable. It's time to replace that one, possibly using better quality cable then stock.

R1 start problem


I had the same problem. After throwing all kinds of money at it, like a new battery, new relay, checking the fuses and many other things. I finally took it to a great shop (M Racing in Glendora, CA) and they discovered it was the starter brushes. Now Yamaha sells a rebuild kit for the 06 R1 starters but it's on back order all the way to Japan. Turns out Yamaha Japan knows about this defect and word is it's going to take months before they start producing the rebuild kit again. I'm sure there will not be a "starter recall" as that would cost Yamaha way to much money which is what the worlds all about, right? Anyway, my starter was rebuilt by a mechanic that rebuilds starters and I haven't had no problems with it. Hope this helps and whatever you do, don't take your bike to Montclair Yamaha. Dealerships charge way to much money and don't get the service or quility of work we all deserve.
Be Safe!!!!
