Question about 2002 Yamaha XVS 1100 Dragstar Classic
I have a 2002 Yamaha Vstar Classic with starter problems but a good battery yet a sluggish starter. The engine light sometimes comes on and the starter struggles to enage and turn the engine over. Other times when she's warmed up, it turns over in a heartbeat.
I have read that there are problems with these starters and noticed mine has developed a slight twist (bolts offstet).
Can I pull the starter with out changing/draining the old and re-align the bolts??
Any help is appreciated.
I had the same problem, replaced the starter ($80 aftermarket, $800 OEM) and have not had this problem again and I just turned 100,000 mile on my 2001 VStar 1100 Classic!

Twisted bolts on the starter are never a good thing. There is also a one-way starter clutch on the crank behind the flywheel that can be damaged. If it engages intermittently, it's on its way out. Both the starter and starter clutch are prone to failure on VStars... and neither are cheap to fix. Hopefully your bike is still under warranty.
