Discussion Starter #1
Just bought a 2007 v star 1100 Silverado. Ran fine when I bought it. Brought it home and it won’t start. Starter just spins. Replaced starter clutch and it’s still doing the same thing. Starter just spins. Any suggestions?

What was the reason for you to replace the starter clutch?

3 things need to start a combustible engine. Spark, Air, & fuel.

Spark .. Check the spark plugs.

Air .. Make sure the air cleaner is not glogged

Fuel .. Check you fuel filter. Is it clogged? Is fuel making to the Carbs?

Check you battery and the connections associated with it. A bad connection somewhere and cause I bike to not start. Also, check the voltage on the battery.

I think he is saying the starter motor is spinning, but not the engine

that would suggest the second starter clutch is also defective, or whatever it mates to (on the flywheel) is not engaging.

?

If the starter is spinning and not engaging. Then wouldn't the starter itself be the issue?

That is the issue trying to diagnose something over the interwebs. Not being there nor not having pictures or a video makes it a bit more difficult.
