Give me the chassis no and I`ll tell you the year and country of origin.
Does it have a white E sticker on the headstock? If so, what number?
The 750 was only made for two years and the blue frame model was a 1988 J model that had the rear drum brake and different head bearings.
That year also had an orange frame but is not so common.
The 1989 model had a white frame as did most ol the 800 models.

If your starter checks out as good be aware that i had similar issues when i replaced the alternator gasket with a spurious one. Basically it was too thin and it allowed the case to compress the starter gears.

Putting the intermediate gear washer back in the wrong place causes the same problem
