Question about 2000 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
Went for a ride, backfired once then engine stopped, hit starter button....no power no fuel pump...had lights and horn but would not start, checked the starter, bolts bent now replaced still have the same problem, bike runs for about 2 minutes and stops again and will not start.
Hi, Karl and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, needs to be 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
5. Tip over sensor needs a reset.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
9. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
10. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
11. Check for engine trouble codes.

Sounds like you are not getting fire to that cylinder,check plug wire,plug,and the cap on the end of the plug wire.
If all is well with those,just let me know and we can go to the next possible cause.

A yellow spark is a weak spark. A blueish white spark is normal. It sounds like the CDI is not in good shape. A dealer can quickly check the system and tell you what the bike needs.
A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem
Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya

The starter button is used in an open circuit design.
You must press the starter button to "Close" this circuit before the starter will engage. Taking the starter button out of the loop helps support the suspect short. Assuming you kept the starter button wires from touching. :) If not, it is most likely the starter button.
Trace the wires coming from the starter button.
There could be a short circuit. (Same as pushing the starter button). Check along the handle bars and anywhere rubbing could cause a break in the insulation. Try this at night with the lights off.
You may be able to SEE the spark and locate it quickly.

It sounds like you got some corrosion going on, on the ground side. I would start with the battery cables first and see if they need cleaned up, then go to the connectors and unplug them and clean if necessary and put die-electrical grease in the sockets of the connectors before plugging them back in. I am assuming that the shifter is electrically assisted if there are problems going on with it as well...this is what makes me believe that it is a bad ground due to setting maybe in a damp inviroment.
