theres a one way bearing on the back of the flywheel that comes off with 3 phill. screws.you have to whack them with a firm hit of a steel tip (the interchangable flat,phill.,tips for a driver) to loosen for replacing this one way bearing that will somtimes go out,BE SURE IF YOU JUST HAPPEN TO CHANGE THE BATTERY THAT THE POS-NEG POLES ARENT OPPOSITE OF THE ONE YOU HAD,THIS WILL STILL SPIN THE STARTER BUT BACKWARDS ON A KAW.

Usually, the contacts in the solenoid of the starter ensure that the starter gear is fully engaged before it starts the starter motor. But, if the contacts are not positioned correctly, the starter motor will start up before the gear on the jackshaft is fully engaged.
Remove the end of the solenoid. That's the five sided plate held on with three small bolts. You'll see two large copper contacts after you pull the plunger and spring out. Make sure these contacts are straight and as far back as they will go. Make sure they aren't twisted due to tightening of the bolts that hold them into the solenoid and that they are not bent outward at the bottom. You want the plunger to be as far into the solenoid as possible before it makes contact with these two contacts. Check the large copper washer on the plunger as well.

SOURCE: Had my starter removed and
If your bike is a Big Twin, the starter jackshaft is held onto the starter by a small long bolt. To get this bolt out, you should have to remove the primary cover off the left side of the engine. If the jackshaft came out with the starter, the jackshaft was pulled through the oil seal in the inner primary. I've never seen this done. Go to http://www.bikebandit.com and look at the breakdown of your starter.

To help figure out the problem, look for the single small wire that is plugged onto the starter just above the endplate. Take the wire off and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should show battery voltage. If it does, the problem is in the starter. If not, the problem is back the other way. If you have voltage there but you aren't hearing a loud click at the starter, then the solenoid of the starter is probably bad and you will probably have to replace the starter.
