SOURCE: 2000 yamaha vstar 1100 custom. starter problem?

I had the same problem 2001 XVS1100 Custom
this is a starter issue Over time the starter on this bike twists when its under a load.
Look at the two bolts holding the starter on if they are not straight across then its twisted. turn starter back in line with a pair of big channel locks and try to start this should do the trick if this works i would recommend taking the two bolts out and bend them back straight or replace and reinstall starter this should fixya problem

Hope this helps ...............Jimmyfixya

Sounds like you need a new battery or to clean connections. Bike is not getting enough juice causing dimness and flickering. Hope this helps.

Is it possible to safely jump start a 2007 yamaha 1100 v star?

You can connect a good battery to thr dead one and it will give tour charger a battery to charge until your dead battery gets some charge. You can now safely disconnect the good battery./

Battery keeps going dead

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To your query, there are 2 major components of the charging system:
  • stator - left side of the engine itself;
  • regulator - right side, below the seat; would be behind the chrome cover below the battery.

A common problem with a VStar is burned, pitted or corroded terminal pins/connectors from the stator to the regulator.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

Charging system can't keep up with lights 2001 v-star 1100 classi

Hi Dalemcin,
I had simillar problem,
what I did is I checked the level of fluid in battery and noted that it was drain ( probably evaporated, because the weather temp. where I live is above 40 C) so I replenished the battery with destilled water. Now it works perfect.

2001 v star won't start   checked battery and it won't take a charge

Battery won't take a charge ! ...trash it and get a new battery in there before it sits too long and your fuel goes bad and you have to clean the carbs too ! Don't feel bad, i've owned 48 motorcycles and at least 60 batteries.......Good Luck to you friend....Tim
