This all started when I reassembled the side cover after doing the stator mod. My started slowly stopped working over a few days. At first I thought it was battery related since I had done the stator mod and hooked up a new R/R. Battery voltage is good and charging voltage is good. Checked the relays and all are functioning properly. Last night I removed the torque limiter and pressed the E-Start. Starter worked. Pressed it again, nothing. I turned the starter shaft by hand, it was stiff but turned slightly. Pressed the E-Start, starter worked. Basically the starter works but not consistently and not under load. Also noticed the end of the geared shaft is chewed up. What could have caused that? Looks like I am pulling the starter. Any common things to look out for as this is my first starter overhaul. Is it normal to get a click/bang (hard to describe) sound from the starter/torque limiter when killing the engine?
