New starter clutch has packed in

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:

I have a starter clutch for a 03wr450.

I have 03 model gone through 2 starter clutches 1 kick start shaft . Not happy !
