WR450 2004 recently replaced starter clutch, worked fine for one full days green laning .
But now starter spins over fine but starter clutch makes no attempt to engage and spin engine over, Any ideas guys ?

Next problem, now that i have to kickstart it, occasionally the kickstart locks up, and i have to put in gear and rock the bike to free it off.
I also get an occasional grinding noise from crankcase
Can anyone diagnose the problem please ?

Stripped crankcase off tonight, only to reveal the heads of 6 M6 cap head scews rolling around the stator windings.
Sheared from starter clutch, and trashed the stator

I would have suggested that but since you just put it in I figured it was too early for those to break. Mine broke twice on my 03.

We have a saying here. It goes something like "you get what you pay for." Amazing.

Seems that these starter clutch bolts have sheared on others machines, if they were doweled or keyed the bolts would not see the shear force, from these high compression machines
