I put a new starter in this truck the other day and now it turns over but the motor kicks back a awful lot.

Wrong starter maybe > not all starters turn the same direction . That would make the motor kick back .

My yamaha yzf 600r thundercat dose not turn over all that happens is when I push the starter button the starter relay makes a buzing sound but it has been checked and is in working order the battery is ok...

The relay should pull in steadily. Check the connections with a meter, on the motor. The battery may be fine but a little corrosion on a battery contact will cause this.

No starter engagement 2005 Silverado 1100

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.
