2006 Hyosung GT 650 R starter spins but doesn't engage

Hi, there I have a Hyosung GT650R with starter problems. This is intermittent, sometimes it will start sometimes it won't, the starter spins but doesn't engage. You can rock the bike in gear and sometimes it works sometimes not. So basically you press the starter button and you hear a fast spinning noise but no cranking at all.

Hi, Emma the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: won't post/boot

Check to see if you are getting any flashing num,scroll,or caps lock lights you can also if you want a definite answer go to (, select the system type and go through the troubleshooting steps.

**Oh by the way if you turn on your system and then it turns back off after less then 3 seconds, according to dell troubleshooting we would be looking at replacing the motherboard.

SOURCE: when i start the 95 tahoe, i hear a spinning

Hello there:
The spinning that you are hearing is the bendix spinning there is a
engagement spring that forces the bendix to engage on the flywheel
If this spring is weak or broke the bendix cant engage furthermore if the teeth on the bendix are broke or chipped or the teeth on the fly wheel are chipped or broke -this will not allow the bendix to engage or start to turn the motor ok so i would have these things checked out ok?
I hope that this is very helpful for you best regards

SOURCE: starter works but gears seem to free spin, wont crank engine

sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. If you can see the large gear that sits behind the rotor and its turning but the rotor isnt turning the sprag clutch has failed. Very costly. usualy you would have a missed start eg not engaging every now and then before this fails all together.

I have a 2008 MS3 250 that will not charge

The battery may be dead and won't receive a charge. If you haven't already, try changing the battery, but charge the new battery on a battery charger before you put it in. You don't want the charging system to have to start off trying to charge another partially charged battery.

2009 Hyosung GT650R, brake light stays on. How does one fix this problem

There is a switch that is connected mechanically to the rear brake mechanism. If the return spring has broken or the switch is broken or misalligned, that can call your problem as can the front break switch, if fitted.
Hope that helps.

My 2006 gt650r backfires as l back down through the gears

Replace the exhaust gaskets in the head and pipe connections. This should minimize the the popping. Air leaks into the exhaust and re-ignites the unburned gases.
