You're gonna need to pull that starter and have a look. My guess is that the flywheel is fine ( no missing teeth ). If you only had a couple of teeth missing then it would have caught by now. I have a feeling that when the starter is in your hand the problem will reveal itself.
nope inner case broke and the gears fell off and snapped stator cover and inner case. bike will never have an electric start ever again unless i replace the case which i am not doing. any idea s on what i should do with this bike ?? sell it with a pull start only??
