Question about 1994 Yamaha XV 535 Virago DX
The one way clutch in the motor grabs a gear with a smooth cylinder sticking out of the side of it. The smooth surface of the gear is now chattered and the one way clutch will not grab it. You will have to replace the large gear and possibly the one way clutch. The one way clutch should be located under the left crankcase cover bolted to the to the flywheel . The starter gear that probably is most of the problem is inserted into the starter clutch between the flywheel and the crankshaft/crankcase. You will have to pull the flywheel to do a proper inspection.

sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. If you can see the large gear that sits behind the rotor and its turning but the rotor isnt turning the sprag clutch has failed. Very costly. usualy you would have a missed start eg not engaging every now and then before this fails all together.
