Starter turns but doesn't turn flywheel?
I got a non-running V Star from a friend of mine who said it only needed to have the pickup coil replaced. I replaced that, but when I went to start it, it makes a sound similar to an electrical engine running (think loud industrial humming?), but it doesn't turn the engine over.
The bike is in neutral, and though the kickstand is disconnected at the moment I am manually depressing the kickstand switch. As far as I now those are the two things you need to do to make sure it will start.
Does anyone know why this might be happening? Suggestions on what to look at to get the actual engine to turn?
