20 Most Recent 2006 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic Questions & Answers

Most likely your starter "freewheel" / "sprag clutch" (like a 1 way bearing) is worn out. You'll need to remove the engine flywheel cover, the flywheel itself. The part is located behind. You will need to replace the 3x parts composing the bearing. Inner race, outer race and sparg clucth. Only replacing the sparg cluth might work, but not as long. Common causes for a worn out starter clutch is a weak battery. The engine sometimes kicks back, thus chewing the sprag clutch.
