Question about 2003 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic
Sounds like the starter motor is OK - but - the starter bendix (drive) might be cooked. The bendix is a clutch that is built onto the output gear of the starter that prevents the starter motor from being over-spun when the engine starts. I am going to say you need a new starter bendix (some folks call it a starter drive). I am not sure if they are available seperately - I usually replace the entire starter. This is a common problem with these bikes, by the way.
