Question about 1984 Yamaha FJ 1100
This 84 Yamaha FJ1100 has a new starter but seemingly won't engage to turn the engine over. With spark plugs out the engine turns over, but when all spark plugs are in place there is a 'whirring' sound? It seems that when the engine is under compression something is "slipping". Has new starter, new battery, and the engine rebuilt last year. It has started just fine since the rebuild, but I have turned it over hundreds of times to try and get it running right. Could it be that it's just not fully engaging? Or perhaps their is a gear that is slipping or stripped out?
Sounds like the starter sprag clutch on the flywheel is slipping.
