Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
When the motor turns over, it locks up. Sounds like the motor is trying to start under compression. Hit the starter switch a couple of three times it finally turns over and starts.
This is common with big compression V twins. The only suggestions i have, is to make sure your battery is new, as you want maximum voltage, mabey a bigger starter relay,( higher amp rating). Do a voltage check with engine running, make sure your charging system is good.
