It sounds like your starter might need new brushes or replaced. I would start there.

Hi, Ashley and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check 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 if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

I tried starting my 2004 Vstar 1100, it started turning over then just went to a spinning noise. I'm thinking a starter. What do you think?


This sounds very much like the gear on the starter may have broken. Less likely is that there is a tooth missing on the ring gear its self.

Try putting the bike in gear and ushing it forward a couple of inches so it turns the engine (and the ring gear) slightly. Try the start button again. If it now works then you have a tooth missing from the ring gear, if it doesn't then the gear on the motor has a problem. Easy to remove and check, The starter is located (If you didn'y know already) right at the front of the engine.

Have 2004 yamaha vstar 1100 classic, starter has been tested good, it tries to start but wont turn over, like its not "catching" i recently installed jet kit but this problem started about a week before...


Sounds like theone way starter clutch. About 2 1/2 hrs labor taking your time. Parts may be hard to get as this is a major problem with the v star. Parts are around $500 and limited. It will eventually quit completely. Yamaha has changed the old part number to a new upgraded version. When I looked up one for a customers bike it showed $331 When I got redy to check out the price jumped to $550 Good luck. Also there is some good daigrams on the v star forum on this problem.

2002 Yamaha Vstar 1100 Custom. STARTER Problem


The starter button is used in an open circuit design.
You must press the starter button to "Close" this circuit before the starter will engage. Taking the starter button out of the loop helps support the suspect short. Assuming you kept the starter button wires from touching. :) If not, it is most likely the starter button.

Trace the wires coming from the starter button.
There could be a short circuit. (Same as pushing the starter button). Check along the handle bars and anywhere rubbing could cause a break in the insulation. Try this at night with the lights off.
You may be able to SEE the spark and locate it quickly.

Good luck!

Could be a starter issue, or a wiring issue. Check for power at the starter when the button is pressed. If you have power, you need a starter, if not, trouble shoot the electrical system.
