Hello all, First off I have a 1999 vfr800 that I’m rebuilding. Bought it off craigslist for a penny and wanted a summer project. Anywho... I Just finished my first clutch install, and she grips like a dream. However, just down the road after an encounter with orange county’s finest, I couldn’t start her up. (Let off with a warning for those of you wondering) Anyways I had to bump start to get back home, and she won’t start up via electronics anymore. Symptoms: lights and controls dim to nothing when starter is pressed. 2-3 struggling turn overs per starter button press. Higher pitch noise from the primary than usual... when starter button pressed. Now I have two suspicions. 1) during the clutch job I just did, a gear popped out onto the floor. Upon online research I can assure you it is NOT the starter reduction gear, but it’s the one right next to it. (If you were to look at the clutch case it would go; clutch, starter clutch, gear I’m talking about, reduction gear. From left to right naturally) anyways, that bad boy popped out and the novice that I am I popped it back in where it fit. Is it possible that the fit was too snug and the starter is struggling to turn the engine over? orrrrrr 2) when removing the clutch primary cover, I had to remove the stater thing... and maybe I put it back wrong? I mean the lights on the bike turns on still and everything. Thank you all, I look forward to any help!
