View Full Version : Starter Clutch replaced

03-04-2004, 03:49 PM
I just picked up my bike last night from the dealer where they replaced the starter clutch; as per my other post regarding starter issues. Seems the a small spring failed allowing the camming dogs to not do there job fully making one hell of a racket when I tried to start it up. It would take several thumbings to get it fired up as the clutch would not stay engaged.

Luckily this was all under warrenty and the dealer had me back on the road in day. It appears that there was some metalic paste build up around the clutch assembly so my concern is that this was also floating around in the motor cases. Not even sure that the clutch is in the engine oil or not. (starter clutch)

Anyway seems all good now and it really is nice to know it is going to start first try every time.

It's the little things in life.
