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

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.

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.

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.
