Question about Yamaha V Star Classic Motorcycles
If you are putting the bike in gear while it is running, and the drive shaft is spinning but the cycle is not moving forward, then you have a broken or stripped gear in the final drive. Try draining the hypoid gear oil and open the fill cap to inspect for damage and metal chips.Your best option is going to be to replace the final drive assembly. You may be able to purchase all the parts to rebuild the old one , but all the bearings and gears may cost as much as the whole assembly.A good option may be to look for a good used one.

I agree with what Heimlich said.
I know the final drive from a 535 Virago will work also as they are exactly the same except for finish. The final drive from a 535 is polished.
