I have a 2005 Yamaha V Star 1100 Classic. I just recently replaced the engine because the nut sheared off on the drive shaft/u-joint assembly. But anyway got everything change out, but I'm having trouble getting the motor started. I have a new battery, new starter & new starter relay. Pretty much all I can get to happen is a click out of the starter relay. The starter won't even turn over, just a faint click in the starter. Also, I have checked all fuses & they are all good. If anyone has any ideas it would be greatly appreciated !
Yes & yes, the nut sheared off on the transmission shaft. Yamaha dealer said the shaft assembly, parts & labor would be $2,400.00. I purchased the replacement engine for $1,500.00. Also, this engine has 8,500 miles on it. Versus 40,000 miles on the original engine, plus they put in a new starter clutch. But anyway like I said in my earlier post, the starter won't even turn over, just a clicking at the starter relay. I do have a new starter, new starter relay & new battery. All the fuses are good also.
Yes, they tested it at the business where I purchased it at. Both starters in comparison had about the same amount of rpms. The rebuilt starter versus the new starter. I'm just wondering if there's another relay that could be bad or wire. Like the wire that goes from the battery to the starter. The starter came with a new cable but it was to short in length.
Yes I checked the battery connections & they look good. I hooked up a separate battery directly to the starter, to try & start it that way. And, I still get the same results, just a click in the starter. Keep in mind the starter is brand new. I'm just wondering if the kick stand switch or the neutral safety switch is bad. Could that keep the motor from allowing the starter to turn the motor over ? But everything considered, there's a new battery, new starter, new starter relay. Also, the business where I purchased the motor at put in a new starter clutch. Any ideas would greatly be appreciated ! They also said they test run the motor before shipping it to me & everything was fine. So, I don't know what to do next, I guess load it up & take it to the Yamaha dealer ??? And let them do some diagnostic work on it. Thanks in advance to anyone who may have any ideas or clues.
