Yamaha 125 Breeze won't turn over

Hello all: My wife has a 125 Breeze that was running great. Turned it off for about an hour and when she went to start it had a problem. The battery is strong and the ignition is working but all that happens when it should turn over is a Whhrrrring sound. (sorry for the noise example) It sounds like the starter is not engaging. Any help as what to look at first would be appreciated.

Welcome to the forums.

Sounds like the starter one way clutch has gone bad. This should spin out and engage the flywheel when starting and retract after it starts. Replacement parts are available and it should not be too difficult to replace.

I know you said the battery is strong but I would double check that it is in fact good and all the connections are clean and tight as a whirring sound can be caused by not enough juice.
