2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic will not turn over

Hi, Mathew before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
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.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

How can I fix my vstar 1100? Turned over for afew seconds then everything died. No power at all. Jeff

Jeff, Make sure battery is good and charged,check all fuses, I believe there will be a 30 amp that could be blown, other then that remove battery connections and clean, check ground connection to frame/engine also, quite common for bikes to have dirty or loose connection and loose all power.
Check the attached links forums,instruction and guides, last link is a good trouble shooting link.Good luck

My wifes vstar wont start put new battery in and starting sisinoid,still just buzzes unlett i boost it

check your charging system components from the grounds, diodes, to the stator/generator and fuses. first check the battery with a volt meter to see if it reads any voltage going back into the battery. that will tell you it is not charging. also if you want a less reliable test, try disconnecting the ground of the battery while it is running. if it stops the system is not charging.

I replace the battery on my 2005 v-star 1100 costum and it only clicks but wont start.

make sure all of the terminals are clean, give them a good cleaning with a wire brush. If that doesnt work check the starter terminals are not loose. After that its a bad starter motor.
