Very simple diagnosis, it's broke. Get a new starter and before you put it in, check the condition of the teeth on the flywheel that the starter engages.
The smaller one looks about right for the retainer ring on the starter shaft. You might take the starter apart and see if there's one or more empty grooves on the shaft.
My guess is that at least one of them is part of the anti-rattle/shock absorber springs in the Center of the friction plate.Sorry, but the gearbox will have to come off you can't just hope you've got all the bits out, something is disintegrating in there big time. S'gottabee fixed!Pete
Thanks, Pete. That's what I was worried about. Only 2.5 months off warranty, as well. Oh, well, as you say, there's no avoiding it. Any tips on the easiest way to go about removing the gearbox on one of these beasts?Cheers,Shaun
Wayne Orwig has done that job and described it for his Stelvio.I blacked out in terror half-way through reading it.Lannis
Yep, looks like you had a spring come out of the clutch for some odd reason.Not sure I really did a write up when I dropped the motor, maybe I did. Nothing special, just work. I remember that the engine vent housing on the left would catch on the frame when I tried to drop the engine. So I was doing something wrong there. And I borrowed an alignment tool for the clutch, but I'm not sure it was really needed.Looks like the front wheel and headlights are about all that stay in place.
Taking it apart is a hell of alot easier than putting that mess back together!Good luck.
Take it to a dealer and try for a warranty fix. Then, get a lawyer. Couldn't hurt.
Shaun, as you can see you can actually leave the throttlebodies and manifolds attatched to the airbox and then either lift the frame up or lower the bench with the engine on it.The biggest embuggerance to my mind with the Stelvio is that you have to do all this buggering about removing lots of little plates, brackets and hangars to get t'other point where you can actually drop the donk out of the frame.Make sure as well you disconnect all of the wires to sensors, alternator, neutral light etc. they're a PITA too.Pete
Ask the dealer. You never know. There are times when it is nice to know the bike really well. 2 1/2 months out of warranty is not it.
Be prepared to curse a lot! I did. Betcha Wayne did and I'll even hazard a guess that Phang and his mate did! Pete
C'est la vie! No use getting bent out of shape over it. Just in case, I guess I'd better go read Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance...
No, the tool isn't needed, nor does it really center the friction plate. To be honest I'm a bit baffled as to what it's purpose actually is . The way I do it is to loosely bolt on the pressure plate so the friction plate can still move then mount the box and push it home. Then I remove it again and tighten down the pressure plate and finish reassembling the rest of the clutch. That way the box just slips back in like pushing a greasy stick up a dog's bum.Pete
