2004 625 sxc E-Starter problem

Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals, recently picked up this used ktm and second day of owning it, the electric starter stopped turning over the engine. I keep the battery on a trickle charger when not in use, so i think the battery is ok. When I push the starter button, it sounds like the rod is spinning, but not engaging the motor. I can kick start the bike just fine. But like I say, starter spins, but engine isnt turning over. Any ideas??

Same problem as my 2004 625 SMC - starter clutch (they call it a "sprague"). I waited awhile to fix it and then the idler gear lost a couple of teeth for some reason and munged the stator and flywheel. Expensive fix. My lesson learned is that I would fix it right away.

PS - there is a thread on advrider where a guy does a pictorial on fixing the starter clutch.
