Starter Clutch Noise

Sounds like you got a lot of it figured out, but in case you're interested, here's what it sounds like when a starter clutch goes bad. Makes a awful "clicking" noise, like gears are locking up somewhere in the motor. The clip isn't great, because it also had a weak battery, so that's why sometimes it isn't turning over at all. Other times, it turns for a second or two, and then you get a "click", and then it stops abruptly. This was a an older (1997) KTM of mine. It was not fun getting to that clutch, but once I replaced it, the noise went away, and the thing would start. Good luck, man.

That's exactly it but it turns over ever slower than that.

El Pachuco... I thought I replied to you post before about the coils.
It's funny, That ground wire that burnt up goes to the rear coil.(it grounds the coil not plugs into the coil. Lucky for me Hyo has two difference size connectors on coils. Can only wire it up one way.

Hopefully i'll get more time Sat to mess with it. 15 min's at a time in the week isn't even worth the effort.
