Starter gear clutch

Recommended Posts

Right then.

Why is it when I start my drz it suddenly comes to a jolt and and nasty noise coming from the starter gear area.

And when it's starting I tilt the bike over on the throttle side and can hear a metal to metal noise.

Is it the starter gear clutch or something else has anyone had this problem/noise .

Any photos of how the washers on the gear shafts should go.

Sometimes... when the engine stops rotating, it is part way through the compression stroke, but lacks the momentum to complete it, so the engine direction reverses for a half a revolution. That causes the sprag clutch to engage and rotate the starter a little bit. Perfectly normal and very common on a e-start single cylinder engine.

Washers go on one per side.

I had to deal with my starter clutch yesterday.  I made video of what I found and described how it works.  Hopefully it'll help out somebody else in the future.  Link at:
