2001 Vstar 1100 starting problem.
Starting Problems! Alright, I just came in possession of a 2001 Vstar 1100 Silverado that has been sitting for about 3 years. I've replaced the battery and attempted to start the bike. When I turn the bike on, I hear my fuel pump engage and shut-off, after which I press the start button. This is where the problem begins. All I hear is the starter solenoid clicking. I've tried to jump it with a screwdriver by touching the post, but nothing happens. I've already pulled the starter to ensure it wasn't seized and it is working properly. This is where I get lost. I can hook jumper cable to my battery and to the starter and the bike turns over, but doesn't start. I'll work on the actual turning over and starting later though. My issue is, between the starter relay and the starter itself. How can I tell where the problem lies?

RE: 2001 Vstar 1100 starting problem.
As far as the cranking but not starting goes ensure fresh fuel clean lines clean carbs and that the pet cock is in the right position. I don't see anything about plugs in your post. Those may need replacing as well.
