Hey guys, I’ve got a question about diagnosing the starter clutch. My starter just started spinning without turning the crank. I pulled the side cover off to check everything out and when I turn the gear on the fly wheel, the one way seems to work just fine. Am I not putting enough torque on the gear with my hand to slip the clutch, or am I barking up the wrong tree

i would look at the starter first. starter clutch is a little bit of a misnomer there is no clutch action. think coaster brake on a kids bike. if memory serves there is a reduction gear between the starter and the one way bearing that you should inspect as well. you will likely need to pull the fly wheel to inspect the starter clutch
