Hello, I have a 2003 WR 450 and I have never had a problem with e-start. It has always worked like a charm. I let the bike sit for about a month without starting it and today when I hit the button it sounds like the motor was screaching or slipping (not catching the gear). It couldn't start on the button but it started on one kick. I know nothing about how the starter works so I am hoping someone can help me determine if it is a bad starter motor or maybe a starter clutch, something else? I hate to take it to a dealer and get screwed out of $500.
