Sounds like the spring came loose on the starter, There is a tab on the spring that catches, and when you took the clutch apart that night have loosed.

When I press the start button the starter turns but the gear does not engage. Battery is fine.

The gear is probably engaging the ring gear but it isn't turning the engine over. The "over running clutch" or "starter clutch" inside the starter is probably bad. You can replace just this part and it's cheaper than buying a new starter. But, only if you can do the work yourself. If you have to pay someone to do the job, the additional time required to disassemble and replace the clutch in starter will quickly eat up any savings you might have realized. If you're going to have to pay someone to do the work, just replace the entire starter. But, you can talk to the mechanic about this and see what the difference in price would be. Part number 252 but they list a starter clutch kit or something.

Good luck

I have a 2000 yamaha ttr90. When tring to kick start it. It sometimes will have full compression and starts right up. Other times it will kick over and have no compression. It feels like im not getting any...

Does it feel like your kickstarter is slipping perhaps?

Check the spline teeth on the kick start pedal.

It's possible it's the shaft that slipping and not that you're not getting compression, since that would normally be constant, or not. I don't think you have a compression release but it's possible. I had the TTR250 (and loved it). Check on the top of the cylinder and see if you see a small cable being moved. I've usually only seen this on larger CC models, and not the smaller units like a 90, but worth checking.

If your kickstarter pedal is slipping then you may just need to tighten it, if it hasn't slipped/shaved off too much of the splines. If it's the shaft that's slipping that's going to be a bigger job replacing.

Good luck!!

Some times when i try to start my bike. it will turn and not engage, i'll do it two or three times before it engages and starts

You may have a problem with the "over running" clutch in your starter. The way your starter works, the jackshaft must be fully extended and engaged with the ring gear on the outer clutch basket before the starter motor turns over. If the starter motor spins and the engine does not turn, it's the starter clutch (over running) clutch that is bad.

You can replace the clutch if you have the know how and tools and save some money. If you can't do the work yourself, you're better off replacing the entire starter. The labor time to disassemble, replace the clutch, and reassemble the starter will eat up any savings recognized from do it this way instead of simply replacing the starter. The labor time for the job will almost double but you can price it out to see which way is better.

Good Luck

84 FXST Starter Kicks out before engine fires

I'd be willing to bet that it's not "kicking out". The tale tell sign is that the starter keeps running. As long as the plunger in the solenoid is pulled inward,which moves the starter drive into engagement with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, the start will run. If the starter drive were being "kicked out" the solenoid wouldn't still be engaged and the starter would not continue running.

I would come closer to thinking that your starter drive is bad, the bendix. These things are notorious for going bad, especially the cheap Chinese made aftermarket ones. I've replaced them with only a few weeks use on them. If you buy a new drive, get an Accel, made in the U.S.A.. Simply pull the starter drive out and clamp the shaft in a vice with aluminum jaws on it. The little nut on the end has left handed threads. When you put the nut back on, put some Red Loctite #271 on it. This ought to solve your problem. If you have anymore questions, drop me a line directly at Good Luck!

97 fatboy starter engages but will not stay engaged.

I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.

Yamaha XV 1600 Will not start. Starter motor works but will not engage the engine to turn it over. The battery is new. This has happened suddenly and without warming. Anyone know what the problem is?

The sprag clutch that kicks the starter gear into the flywheel is not engaging. This may involve splitting the engine/transmission case if you have to clean or replace that mechanism. I have had success running CD-2 as described here. You might try that before tearing into the bike.

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.
