Loosen bolt for starter clutch

I have a 03 WR 450 and experience a loosen bolt in the starter clutch.... :) The bolt ruin the stator and it slip in the cover. Verdict: a scraped stator and left cover and debris in the crankcase/transmission. I have to desassemble the engine and clean it. Same time change piston ring and valve seal.

If you have a doubt: remove the left cover and check the six Allen head bolt that retain the starter clutch to the flywheel. On 6 bolts: 1 completely off, 2 1/2 off and the other 3 loose. My engine not reassemble yet, but it will have red Loctite on these bolt :p

Remember: when you hear a crounch crounch in the left cover, it' s to late :)
