SOURCE: How to take off a yamaha vmax 1200cc 1991 starter

The easiest way is to first drain all of the antifreeze. Use a clean container, because you can re-use it later if it is not too old. Then remove the radiator, and then remove the thermostat cover. (you will need to un-do all of the hoses to do this.) The the starter will be reasonably easy to get to. It took me about 45 minutes to do this on mine. As a side note. If it is starting slowly when hot, I found that if you dis-assemble the starter and take some sand paper (about 300 grit) to the brushes and the part of the stator that they rub on, it will solve the problem without buying a new starter. I hope this helps.

Often times, the coupling is not fitted completely, and the excess pressure is binding the motor or gearbox up

Not a guaranteed solution, but something to check

reopen the case and motor, and use a dowel and hammer to ensure the spiders are fully pressed onto the gearbox and motor shafts

Dryer has intermittent problems starting. Will make a loud groaning sound (you can hear the motor strainging) and then will either start or overheatand cannot be started for abotu 1/2 an hour.

diss asemble the dryer and check for binding at the motor could have lint in the windings, if not binding the bad motor, also as you dissasemble look for stuck or frozen tub roller or bearing

this is all the help without a model number
