WR450 '04 replaced starter clutch , everything just fine.
Had a full days use no problems
Next time i went to get it out, starter spins ok but will not engage starter clutch and turn engine over.

What could the problem be ?

03 was a bad year for starter clutches disintegrating. You may have got a replacement part that was made in that year. There seems to be some inconsistency with the manufacture of these starter clutches. Take it apart and if it has gernaded you got a bad one so go and try to plead with the dealer to get you another thru Yamaha marketing.:censored:
