i would try a lower octane first . and if possible try to get marine fuel. with no ethanol in it .its just normal gas like we use to have before .Anyway that bike was not meant for the fuel of today. this is a common problem with older bikes and smaller engines . see if the sound goes away after that . if not you may have a serious problem .

Hook a jumper cable from the negative battery post to any grounding point on the starter and try starting. If it starts then the problem is in your ground. Remove and clean both ends of the cable as well as the spot they connect to. Reinstall ground cable and try starting. Hope this helps

It could just be a spark plug if its not turning over. Have a mechanic look at the starter before you spend more money than you have to.

Looking at the dragstar 100 maunal, there doesn't appear to be a starter clutch.
Maybe you mean the pre engage starter dog is not engaging. The manual just tell one to replace the motor. I would remove the starter, clean and lubricate the dog and bearing then put it back in as that usually fixes it.

back fire,bogs down and choke required means it is lean.
Check fuel filter, fuel tap
intake air leaks, loose clamps, cracked rubber
vacumn hose off
valve clearance
loose jets in carb \dirt in carbs
part of a carb coming loose , like the top cap

The back fire can be because of carbon fouled plugs, caused by the choke on.
air intake leaks can sometimes be found by spraying WD around intake rubbers,while running and listening for engine change.
The rest is mainly visual inspection and adjusmnet

did you try to push start it? sounds like a bad starter

Could be, or maybe the gas is off or filter clogged. I'm not kidding or being smart. Remember it's either gas, spark or air.

The oil light comes on for 2 reasons. One is if the oil pressure is to low and the other is if the oil is low and you my need to add some. Also the wires may be loose.

Have you had an oil gauge on the line to check what pressure you are running at? You may want to try running a heavier oil in the engine. If you are running a synthetic oil switch back to ester oil. If this does not remedy the problem then a new oil pump will be the fix

Could be a starter issue, or a wiring issue. Check for power at the starter when the button is pressed. If you have power, you need a starter, if not, trouble shoot the electrical system.

No unfortunately there is not...I have looked and all I can recommend is try to find either a used manual from ebay or buy a manual from the dealer. Personally I would buy a manual, so that in the event you needed other information, specs, etc. pertaining to the project.

Below the battery panel is a frame panel, remove this and you'll be presented with the reg/rec... A good idea is to see if its earthed to the frame as this can cause problems ifs its broken or loose.

Kick stand switch may be the problem, if the kick stand is down and clutch out it wont start, sometime this switch will play up and it can be bypassed.

check the spark plugs are ok and the plug caps resistance are in tolerance as they are resister caps and if they are failing they reduce thd spark power ! i had this on a kawasaki 900 once ! also how old is the fuel as after 5mths its no good as it goes off ! carbs could be dirty also another area to look at ! clean connections on coil wires ?
