The starter clutch may be worn, or is sticking, this is separate from the starter motor and should not be confused as part of it,

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

Could be a number of things but may want to begin by checking wiring to starter, battery, or even the ignition switch. These components may not turn your engine light on.

I tried starting my 2004 Vstar 1100, it started turning over then just went to a spinning noise. I'm thinking a starter. What do you think?


This sounds very much like the gear on the starter may have broken. Less likely is that there is a tooth missing on the ring gear its self.

Try putting the bike in gear and ushing it forward a couple of inches so it turns the engine (and the ring gear) slightly. Try the start button again. If it now works then you have a tooth missing from the ring gear, if it doesn't then the gear on the motor has a problem. Easy to remove and check, The starter is located (If you didn'y know already) right at the front of the engine.

Remove starter from engine leaving the wire conected, earth out the strter to the engine and pres the starter button, if the starter spins, it is likely you have a starter clutch problem, this test will eliminate the starter being at fault, presume u have checked battery condition

Starter kick back


If this is a gas engine, check the ignition coil or plug wires. A simple test...

Start the truck at night, then look under the hood while it's running. Don't use a flashlight or your headlights; it should be dark !

If you see sparks anywhere around the engine, you've found the problem. Now you can turn on a light to see where they're coming from - probably from a cracked ignition coil.

Good luck !
