SOURCE: 2000 yamaha vstar 1100 custom. starter problem?

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem

Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: Starter is just spinning and not engaging

Assuming that no gears are broken in your flywheel, which is not likelly, I would say that you either have a bad solenoid, or not enough current going to the solenoid.

Make sure your battery terminals are clean and making good contact. Make sure the cables on your starter are tight and clean. If the solenoid is bad, or not getting enough current, it will not have the strength enough to push the Bendix out so that it engages.

SOURCE: installed a new starter and it will not turn over

did it do the same thing before? if so there are probably teeth broken off the flyweel, remove the starter and look at this. if not the new starter is probably bad,but make sure it is mounted squarly and flush to its mounting surface.

Why would I have to re jet my 2002 Yamaha vstar 1100 custom?


Hi, Anonymous if you have changed your fuel delivery system, air filter size or flow rate, mufflers or exhaust system or a significant change in altitude your carburetors need re-tuning and if your fuel system (gas tank, filters, fuel valve and carburetor) is contaminated with ethanol sludge, varnish, rust, dirt, water etc. or your bike has been sitting for months or years without running these components must be "PROPERLY" cleaned and reassembled "CORRECTLY" before any adjustments can be made. Tuning your carburetor is fairly simple once you understand the basic principals. You engine is a simple airbox sucking air in and blowing it out, it is finely tuned at the factory for maximum performance once you upset that delicate balance by changing air filters, camshafts or exhaust systems your performance may go down the and the engine may run poorly, you need to compensate the air-fuel mixture in the carburetor in order for the engine to run smoothly and at peak performance. If you are running multi carburetors you need to sync them first and make sure your air cleaner element is clean and dry for paper elements or lightly oiled for foam and meshed elements and properly installed. Here is how and where you compensate trouble: "TIP" if your engine "BOGS" your not getting enough fuel.
1. Closed to 1/8 throttle is managed by the air screw and pilot/slow jet.
2. 1/8 to 1/4 throttle is managed by the air-screw, pilot/slow jet, and throttle slide.
3. 1/4 to 1/2 throttle is managed by the throttle slide and jet needle.
4. 1/2 to 3/4 throttle is managed by the jet needle, needle jet, main jet, and air jet.
5. 3/4 to wide open throttle is managed by the main jet and air jet.
6. Wide open throttle is managed by the main jet.
If you are running lean, spark plug electrode color is white, engine runs hot and feels like it is starving for fuel you need to go up on the jet size or move the c-clip down one notch. If you are running rich, spark plug color is black or dark gray, engine runs cool, and bogs down when accelerating you need to go down on jet size or move the c-clip up one notch. When your carburetor is properly tuned for maximum performance your spark plug electrode will be a light tan color like coffee with cream. If you prefer fuel economy over performance you can go down on main jet sizes until a satisfactory level of lower performance is acceptable versus MPH, your spark plug color will be whiter and your engine will run warmer. These tuning adjustments will only make improvements if your intake and exhaust system have no air leaks or sealing issues and the entire electrical system is in proper working order and you have no mechanical issues.

I just rejetted ( at least I think I did ) my carburetor on my vstar 1100 custom. The problem is that the Cobra Carb Jet Kit 92-2170 only had main jets.... five of them. Does this mean that only the main...


In many case when you rejet your carburetors you are only changing the mains and the needles(to get rid of the acceleration bog) If they give you several size jets to try, be sure you are putting the right sizes in the right spots. Yamaha typically will run one carburetor leaner than the other. Depending on how the cycle is running , I have known people to match the jets in both carburetors. Check the color of your plugs to double check if you have set the cycle up correctly.

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.

I have a 2007 yamaha vstar that is having starter problems.if i hold the starter button in it takes forever for it to turn over.already put a new battery in ,didnt help


i don't know if you have the 650 or 1100, but here's something to check. on the left engine side cover there is a half dollar size inspection cover, remove that cover and look inside at the flywheel while you turn the engine over, if the flywheel is rocking back and forth or only rotating completely ocassionally, the problem is not a electrical issue, it's mechanical, it's the starter one way clutch located behind the flywheel. if this turns out to be the problem (as it just was with my '03 1100) boats.net has the best price for the parts in the country.

Twisted bolts on the starter are never a good thing. There is also a one-way starter clutch on the crank behind the flywheel that can be damaged. If it engages intermittently, it's on its way out. Both the starter and starter clutch are prone to failure on VStars... and neither are cheap to fix. Hopefully your bike is still under warranty.

2005 1100 vstar wont start. srarter working fine. pistons & valves are not moving at all ran perfectly the day before. 8500 miles. help me


If the bike ran well the day before, and nothing strange like no oil in the crankcase is going on, then the bike is likely to be fine. What isn't fine is the starter. The starter motor may be running fine but if the starter gear does not engage then the pistons are not going to move. It is time to call the dealer and talk with them as to repair or replacement cost. If replaced, keep the old starter for parts.

You may also want to check out a starter from a wrecked bike. Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha ". Chances are you can get a good starter for cheap.

Please rate this solution. Thanks! :)
