Frewheeling starter

When I hit the button the starter spins and does not turn over the engine, there is a small gear that drives the overrunning clutch that does not turn. It is a two piece gear, is it supposed to turn as one i.e. have an interference fit or something? There is a snapring to hold it together but no splines or key, it turns in itself but is stiff I don't understand this design. Help! The bike is an 05 450x.

That is the reduction gear and it is pressed together.Just replace the gear and your good to go.I had the same problem with my 05'.Easy fix.
