Recommended Posts

i never seen a starter set up like this , use to work on car's but this looks crazy to me . my starter spins and makes a grinding noise, well not really a grind i cant describe it . ok pulled starter and it works fine, i took off side cover and it looks like it dosnt hit the other gear to turn over the engine. some guy told me a starter clutch ,what the heck is a starter clutch and how do i install 1

ur starter clutch is bad,it is located on the left side of ur bike behind the side cover,u will also need a balancer puller to remove the fly wheel,it's not that hard to replace,go to thes site and it will tell u how to replace ur one way,as well as parts needed,i have done a couple of them,make sure u replace the 52 tooth gear...................L&A Designs One Way Yamaha Raptor 660 Starter Clutch

One suggestion, do not use a conventional 2-3 jaw puller to remove your flywheel. There is a specific puller made for removing the flywheel on your machine, and they aren't too expensive. It screws into the flywheel and has a bolt on the inside that screws in and pushes your flywheel off. You can get away with using regular generic pullers sometimes, but I have personally seen flywheels ruined by using the wrong tool. I definately agree that it sounds like your starter clutch is the problem.

thanks guy's i will look at the link and see if i can handle it . i still dont understand how it works? the stater clutch must engage something to move the gear to the starter i guess.

Once you get in there, and can see how it is set up, you may better understand how it works. Good luck.

      Hi All,
      I have a 2004 Yamaha Kodiak, which has taken me to many remote places and hauled lots of game.  I still love it after 16 years.
      Lately when I go to start it using the starter, sometimes it clicks and kills the power in the display.  Lights don't work, nothing works and I end up having to unplug the battery, wait awhile, and replugging the battery ends up giving the power back.   Using the winch will sometimes kill the power as well.
      Battery is new, all fuses are ok, I'm at a loss.  I can start it with the pull crank and it will work and so will the lights.
      Any insights or advice would be appreciated!

      Anyone know if the stator cover gasket needs sealant?

      Disconnected the plow yesterday on my 2004 Yamaha Grizzly 660 and am getting ready to do some riding yesterday and the battery went weak, Starter cranked a few times but week. Put my trickle charger on that I bought and went to the garage today to start it up, but the starter is just spinning and not engaging. The solenoid is clicking. The pull start sucks and is hard to pull (never use it and need to look into that). Quick video of the starter spinning. Could it be the starter or  the starter clutch one-way bearing? I guess I need to take the cover off to see what's going on.
