Question about 2007 Yamaha V Star Custom
Installed new starter all it does is spin! so put old starter that was dragging and now it does the same just spins! what is tha deal????
I believe on the 2007 V Star that you have to remove the side cover on the left side of the engine to replace the starter. It has a sprocket the slides onto the starter shaft. If you just unbolt and remove the started the sprocket falls out of place and when you install the new starter the sprocket that turns the motor over does not go back onto the starter shaft. Remove left engine side cover and install sprocket wth chain back onto the starter shaft. Should fix your problem.

Check fuses. Check voltage. Could be a burned, or just broken fuse. Could be a dead battery. Could be as simple as poor battery connections. If not, perhaps the following will help:
A starter can be tested in a very simple way, by applying 12vdc to the power input, and grounding the case. If it spins, then it's on to step 2, checking connections.
Starters are much too simple to be more complicated than that, but the electrical system can be. Check the circuit between the relay and the starter. Is is a direct wire with no breaks? If so, check the voltage at the power output and input of the relay. If it is good, check the power input and grounding of the starter.
Most new bikes have a clutch switch, and it may interrupt the 12vdc to the starter, without affecting the relay. Same thing goes for the nuetral switch.
Try starting in nuetral, with the clutch pulled. Check the relay for conections that you may have taken off, and not replaced. Same thing for the starter.

Testimonial: "accurate and outstanding advice, new starter bad, many thanks"
The starter clutch needs to be replaced. At the other end of that chain is a wheel with a couple slots cut at angles. Inside each of these slots is a small cylindrical piece of metal. The whole unit fits over the end of the crankshaft and because of the angle of the slots those cylindrical pieces of metal (which move freely in the slots) will be forced against and grip the crankshaft when the starter is operated. If they become worn down they are no longer able to exert enough pressure on the crankshaft in order to turn it. Buying a starter clutch 2nd hand is not recommended. If you are unable to source one from a bike shop, try and have them made. Take the old ones to an engineering shop. Unless you know how to temper/harden metal of course.
