ES Question
« on: February 24, 2008, 10:51:37 AM »
Lately, my electric starter has had a bit of a problem engaging.  When it does, the engine starts fine.  But mostly it feels like the starter gear (?) won't stay engaged.  If it does engage, it doesn't stay that way long enough to turn the engine very far.  Then I hear the starter motor singing away under no load.

Is this a "Sprag Clutch" thing? 

Oh yeah, the bike is a 2006, 65.

Any thoughts appreciated.

Hi Vince. 

The bike is under warranty, but there's no way I'm going to let the dealer work on it.  So I'm on my own when it comes to repairs and maintenance. 

I'll be emailing you about how to fix this.

Thanks,
Fred
