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.

You need to check the voltage on the battery while the engine is running. If it's less than 14volts, then the charging system isn't working at all, and that's how you test it. Don't just replace parts, test until you find what's bad. It may be as simple as a broken wire.

That's because the LED bulbs draw so little current the flasher relays doesn't know anything is there. You need an electronic flasher relay, OR you need to put a resistor in parallel with the bulbs to draw more power.

I *think* you have a pretty common 2-post relay, or possibly a 3-post relay on your bike, so something like this should work;

Remove plastic covers from the heads (front on left side of bike, rear on right side). Use the spark plug wrench that came with the bike in the toolkit. You do not need to remove the seat.

Check the acid level in the battery. After a season running in hot weather, wet-plate batteries have often lost some water to evaporation. I see this often here in Texas. The new charge won't hold and electrical gremlins pop up often.
Also check for loose or corroded connectors on battery terminals and starter relay.

if the bike is fuel injected- the pump is in the fuel tank.. if the bike has carburetors- there is normally no fuel pump- the fuel gravity feeds from the tank thru the petcock valve into the carbs

Have you checked the fuel supply? Could be a dead fuel pump or a blocked fuel filter.

Stock oil filter installed: 3.17 quarts if no filter change - 3.3 quarts if filter changed

DO NOT OVERFILL! FYi - there's a site glass on the left side of the bike, under the left riders peg. Make sure the bike is level, oil is warm and bike is off - do not let the oil get over the upper mark... just under the upper mark is good, a little closer to middle is better.

In the heads..(just kidding) . you may have to remove the gas tank... follow the spark plug wires to the general area.

Check alternator output and the regulator- the regulator may not be working and the battery got overcharged badly

Locate the black wire attached to the battery, follow it to where it attaches to the engine or the frame.

Loose ground wires can cause all kinds of problems, and since ground wires are located in multiple locations specific to each model, each wire must be checked to assure connection.
If you have a starter problem, check the positive connection to the starter as well.
Remove seat and side covers and look closely at the frame to find black and/or black with another color attached to the frame. Remove, clean and reinstall each connection. Paint, rust and other corrosion can degrade connections. Also check your wires for corrosion, especially the battery wires.

yes. There are quite a few web sites that will allow you to download a copy! autorepairmagz.com/search/2002+yamaha+vstar+1100+manual+free+download

Not by default.

The switch is normally open and when you pull in the clutch it closes the switch. Some owners like to by-pass the clutch switch and that allows the bike to start in gear.

You can by-pass the clutch safety switch in a couple of ways. Details and discussions are available on this forum (locate the "web page" tab at the top of the main page):

If it's already happening for you, these instructions will serve to help you locate where the change was made.
