hey guys i just picked up a 05' wr450 and the electric start wont work. when i hit the button the solenoid clicks but doesnt do anything, ive tested the battery and the starter has power. i pulled off the casing and the spindle of the starter will barely turn, if i use a screwdriver and a lot of force i can just get it to turn around should this spin freely? and does it pop out like a car starter does? thanks :)

Your starter is done.... It will need to be replaced or rebuilt.

Rebuilding will at minimum include new brushes and bushings assuming the armature is not damaged.
