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.
Thanks

My bike wont turn over.. can anyone help??


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.

MY STARTER ON MY 2004 YAMAHA VSTAR 1100 JUST SPINS AND WILL NOT ENGAUGE THE FLYWHEEL. WHERE IS THE SOLENOID LOCATED ON MY BIKE?


Hi, Brutledge552 the starter drive/Bendix/clutch is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed, it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

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!

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.
