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.

Drain and replace the gas with fresh.
Remove the air cleaner and spray carb cleaner into the inlet. Work your throttle a little then put everything back together and try to start it.

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.

Testimonial: "Great feedback and it has given me a different avenue to look that I had not thought of. The response was quick and not only did ?lylerwh? provide the direction to look he furthered explained what his decision was based on. Thanks "
There should be a circlips at the end of the driveshaft.
That circlips holds the shaft IN the differential parts.
If you have still warranty, let it repair by a dealer. The circlips is maybe INSIDE the differential casing and can thus destroy a lot of parts!
