Question about 1981 Honda GL 1100 Innerstate Gold Wing
There is a one way clutch that grabs onto a smooth cylinder on the side of a large gear inside the motor. The smooth barrel surface is on the side of what Honda calls the "starting sprocket". A chain connects the starting sprocket to a smaller sprocket that has the starter spline plugged into it. To replace this you will have to unbolt the motor and at least rotate it far enough to remove the rear cover. The chattered surface does not allow the three small barrels of the starter clutch to grab and turn the motor over. The sprocket runs about $70 and the gasket runs about $38.
