Question about 1991 kawasaki GPZ 500 S - GPX 500 R
The sprocket behind the flywheel has a roller clutch. Very simple but difficult to describe, maybe you could google it. Its a common clutch arrangement used on many starters. They can often fill up with **** from the oil and the small rollers and springs inside don't move freely. If this is the problem then it only needs cleaning out and I usually give the springs a little stretch. ie. another millimeter is plenty. Sometimes a spring may be broken. The only way to find out whats really wrong is to take it apart but you will need the correct puller to remove the flywheel. Its basically impossible to do this job without the right tools.
