The starter clutch on my daytona 1200 is slipping. Have been told that it is a sprag clutch set up. Removed starter motor and main clutch basket but still can't get to starter clutch.

    The starter motor gear is fine. I have just found out it's the srag clutch in a gear inside the tansmission. looks like i have to take the motor out and split it in half, just to get to this starter gear. I need to find a manual for the gear box.

    This breakdown came from Bike Bandit . com it shows as a gear behind the altenator rotor, It looks like a car starter drive even though it all seems to come apart. I use bikebandit.com for the pictures of the parts and if your an AMA member you get 10 percent off too. The basic membershi is inexpensive and ypu get a cool magizine that tells where all kinds of motorcycle events are and my subscription pays for it's self over and over with discounts at bike bandit alone.

    I noticed they did'nt list a Daytona in 94 so I used the pictures for the 95. they should be about the same.

Hi,
I think you may have this wrong as the starter motor house's the starter drive pinion which is what your referring to that is slipping the, drive pinion on the end of the starter motor is the problem and within that small unit the the starter pinion clutch.
Let me know if this is what you mean.
Thanks
Jason

Is the 955I triumph starter clutch interchangable with the 900 starter clutch


Hi, Greg after careful deliberation 4 out 5 Triumph Gods give this one a thumbs up, but just to be on the safe side you should give your local dealer's parts/service department a call to confirm.

I just get a whirring noise when I press the start button .Is this a shot starter solenoid?


Depends on the bike.

Some bikes have starter motors with built in bendix clutches, others have direct drive starters with sprag clutches attached to the flywheel. Either way, the starter clutch is slipping and will need to be replaced.

The flywheel dose not stay on starter long enough to turn over motor. slips off and starter reves up and flywheel comes back and hits starter and makes a loud crack. had starter rebuilt cause a new one is...


the play in the shaft that your flywheel is causing your issue-you need to find the reason for that 1/2 inch wobble, although the most obvious would probably be a rear main bearing.or a bent (?) crankshaft...ask your rebuilder to double check the bendix gear operation on the starter, but it sounds like your problems are not the starter based on your description.

Hi - This problem happens only after motor has been running and is all heated up. After I shut it down (for refueling for example) and then try to start it back up, the starter make a loud grinding sound...


You may have an "over running clutch" going bad on you. This part does the same thing that the old "Bendix" used to do. It is a one-way bearing or sprag unit. When the starter goes to start the engine, the starter is turning faster than the engine. The unit locks up and turns the engine. Once the engine fires, the engine is turning much faster than the starter. If the starter doesn't freewheel, the speed of the starter would destroy it. So, when the engine starts up, the "over running cltuch" unlocks and allows the starter drive gear to freewheel. The part is inside the starter. It can be replaced but it requires that the starter be removed and disassembled.

Good Luck

Starter has a hard time turning motor sometimes.It also will make a noise like the drive gear is slipping a tooth on the ring gear.Is the starter out of alignment or in need of a shim?


No, the starter motor is not out of alignment and a shim will not do any good. Keep in mind that I cannot hear what your starter is doing. But, if you say it sounds like it slipping a tooth or a making a grinding noise, it's probably the internal starter clutch. This part is also called an "over running clutch".

This part is replacable but it requires the disassembly of the starter. If you're mechanically inclined and have the time and tools, you can remove and repair your starter and save yourself a few bucks by replacing the clutch. However, if you are going to have to pay someone to do the job, you're better off to have the entire starter replaced. The extra time you would have to pay for to disassemble and reassemble the starter would negate any savings you would have otherwise realized.

Now, there is also the chance that there is damage to the ring gear on the outer clutch basket and the starter jackshaft. I have seen it on occasions. Both the jackshaft and the ring gear are replacable but the clutch assembly must be removed. I would recommend that your replace both if you find either part damaged. Once you find out which it is, repost and I'll tell you how to repair your bike.

Good Luck

My 92 Honda vt 600 shadow has started to make a squealing sound


By tick over I am assuming you mean when you engage the starter to start the bike.
This sounds like your starter sprag clutch is slipping.
The starter clutch is located behind the flywheel on the left side of the motor.
Hope this helps.

Starting issue


Congrats on the 1200. A lovely well made bike. The finish is much better than on later T5 series bikes. Usefull mods? A scott Oiler will realy prolong the life of chain and sprockets. Junk the standard silencers as they are very heavy. I took my fairing lowers off too this shed weight. The finish is good on these bikes and I think it looks great without the lowers. Problems? As has been said the sprag clutch. Particularly on early ones. Which yours is. If it has a rectangular plate on the crank case behind the cylinder block it will be an early one. This is a good thing as a carefull mechanic who knows Triumphs can change the sprag clutch without stripping the engine. 95 onwards bikes had a redesigned sprag clutch. You can fit one of these to an earlier motor. Also get a good heavy duty battery as weak batteries can kill the sprag clutch. I've not had a problem with coils. Though I hear they can play up. If it was me I'd strip out the fuel lines and taps and replace the diaphragm on the tap and clean the filters. Down where the lines join the carbs there are some tiny inline fliters that can get blocked. The bolt that holds the alternator drive gear to the alternator drive shaft can shear. Its located behind the clutch. There is a Triumph replacement. You will nead a hollow shaft and the new through bolt. This will cure it. You can do the replacement by pushing the old shaft out with the new once you've removed the alternator and clutch. Torque on the through bolt is 12nm I think but check. This sounds like a long list but realy if all this goes youre unlucky. I've found my 1200 to be pretty reliable. The motors are massively over engineered. To keep the black stuff looking nice I clean it with degreaser then wipe over with a light oil. Duck oil or something like. Silicone spray brings the matt black plastics up nice. Finaly I use Avon Azarro tyres. Long life but seem to work well on a heavy bike like the 1200. Overall I love mine. I tried a 955i which was great but ultimately its the 1200 I kept as a perfect long distance tool. For town work and general riding I bought a Thruxton, but the 1200 is a special bike not for everyone but well made and just that bit unusual.
