SOURCE: I have a 2003 v star 1100. How do you get the pin

You need to make the adjustment screw and lock as loose as possible first. Then pull your clutch in and look where the pin is, there is a slot on the lever where the cable can slide down (and the pin with it). If you can't get it loose enough with the adjustment screw you may have to loosen the controls and slide them in just a little, or disconnect the cable at the other end.

At about the one minute mark on this video they show another process that will work, disconnecting the lever from the bar and turning it over. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MTcBDi8-7AY

SOURCE: how to remove the starter clutch on a 2003 yamaha

It is on the back side of the flywheel for the magneto/generator. You will need to remove the left engine side cover then pull the flywheel. It does take a special puller to get the fly wheel off. Once you get the flywheel off, there are 8 allen bolts that hold it to the back side of the flywheel.

SOURCE: STARTER WENT OUT ON MY 2003 YAMAHA V STAR 1100

You are telling me you have had trouble with this starter for six years? ... and the dealer told you ... what?

You need to seriously see the Yamaha certified repair shop. You likely have major damage to your fly wheel, your starter and probably your electric system after this much abuse.

Please get it fixed so you can enjoy your Yamaha Classic.

Thanks for your question at FixYa.com

SOURCE: 1999 V Star 1100, clutch slips a bit at high gear,

Very likely clutch plates I'm afraid.

Caution here: What oil are you using? If you have used standard Auto oil in the engine, it will have contaminated the plates and this is why they will be slipping. Bike engine oil is a different formulation because the clutch is submerged in oil. What you are describing is a classic result of topping your bike up with standard car engine oil.

If this is the case, you will certainly need to replace the clutch plates.

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.

Starter works but gears seem to free spin, wont crank engine


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.
