The one way clutch inside the motor is slipping. On the back side flywheel is a one way clutch that grabs the starter gear when the starter motor spins. It is designed to let go of the gear once the motor fires up. If the mating surface of the one way clutch and the starter gear becomes rough or chattered, it will no longer grab and turn the motor over. To repair this you will have to take off the crankcase cover and pull off the fly wheel to replace the one way clutch and the starter gear.

    I have not worked at a dealership for a few years but my experience tells me that the gear that the one way clutch grabs is usually the problem. On Honda's there are three rollers the grab the gear. The rollers are usually not bad , the gear is chattered,not smooth on the grabbing surface of the gear and that's what is not holding. If your dealer replaced the clutch but not the gear/mating surface, then , that is why it continues to fail.

Sounds more like the dreaded starter spin than the clutch..this happens when the starter clutch gear located on back side of generator rotor has let go of the shaft rendering the starter useless this usuall6 comes from improper starting of the bike andor a backfire.

What would cause a 2005 vstar classic 1100 not start when the starter is engaged and why would it sound as if the engine lost its compression and how would i go about finding out what the proublem is


Hi, Anonymous 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.

Sounds like it may be drawing air around the intake somewhere. Let it idle and spray around carefully with wd-40 until it speeds up. This will reveal the leak.

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.

2005 1100 vstar wont start. srarter working fine. pistons & valves are not moving at all ran perfectly the day before. 8500 miles. help me


If the bike ran well the day before, and nothing strange like no oil in the crankcase is going on, then the bike is likely to be fine. What isn't fine is the starter. The starter motor may be running fine but if the starter gear does not engage then the pistons are not going to move. It is time to call the dealer and talk with them as to repair or replacement cost. If replaced, keep the old starter for parts.

You may also want to check out a starter from a wrecked bike. Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha ". Chances are you can get a good starter for cheap.

Please rate this solution. Thanks! :)
