Question about 2004 Yamaha V Star Classic

1 Answer

My '04 v-star 650 feels like it has no transmision. it will click into every gear, but when i give it throttle all i hear is grinding, and there is no movement at all. i don't belive the trans is gone though, cause the grinding gets more high pitched(sounds like parts are grinding faster) if i put it in a higher gear. is there a chain or gear that connect the motor to the trans i could have broke? or is it common for the shaft drive to go out on these? clutch maybe? i want to fix the bike myself, but i have not gotten into the star yet as its only got 17k on it and has never had a problem. any ideas as to what i should be looking for would be extremely helpful. thanks

I believe you can see the actual shaft for the shaft drive spin. If you start the motor and put it in gear and see the shaft spinning the problem is a stripped pair of gears in the final drive. Compare the cost of the pieces (plus labor) to the entire assembly, the assembly will probably be cheaper. If you can not see the shaft just check the oil in the final drive for metal chips. A worst case scenario , your engine case has metal chips ( That might cost more.).

2006 model 650. When I put it in gear and take off, why is it sputtering and has no power?


Hi, Peggy and the usual suspects are:
1. Throttle cables misaligned or misrouted.
2. Damaged or restricted fuel tank venting system.
3. Inlet system air leak.
4. Vacuum piston malfunction.
5. Accelerator pump leaking or no output.
6. Plugged bowl vent.
7. Fuel level in bowl too low.
8. Restricted fuel supply passages.
9. Plugged jets or passages.
10. Worn or damaged needle or needle jet.
12. The enricher valve not seated or leaking.

My allison transmision is making a grinding noise when in gear from the back end of the transmision


Sounds like a bearing problem. The gears are held in place by roller bearings, and they sometimes pack up. Working the machine with a bad bearing eventually grinds up the steel balls or rollers that the flanges roll on, and the bearing collapses completely. The bearing itself will announce its demise with a grinding sound, and worst case scenario the bearing is so far gone that the gears are running out of true with respect to one another, and this could be the grinding you are hearing.

Runs but wont go into gear. Just grinds after feeling a thump.


if the bike only grabs gears with the rpm way up there is a chance the clutch is gone or just about. make sure the clutch is properly adjusted. Also if it is a wet clutch be sure you have the proper amount of the right oil. if there is super old oil in the clutch plates they wont grab.
