The starter motor doesn't spin until the starter gear engages the ring gear on the clutch basket. the starter gear doesn't engage unless you hit the start button the start button doesnt make the starter spin directly it is the "bendix" kicking the gear out to the ring gear that hots up the starter motor. so your problem is the gear is stuck engaged thats why the thing starts as soon as you turn the bike on because the gear is engaged and this is what hots up the starter. clear as mud? you might could clean and lub that part of the starter and avoid a rebuild or replacement

2010 frontier v6 stater spins but engind doens't turn

Either drive isn't engaging properly (faulty solenoid or wiring) or there is a "bald" patch on the ring gear.

If it will eventually start it's more likely to be a solenoid / wiring issue.

Part number of electric start gear on 247-88190 starter motor

Look for comments about Pinion Drive. If your starter gear sounds like it bangs into the Flywheel and then immediately just spins.
I t might be a $14 part ( 590644). Is it a Tecumseh Engine?

Evinrude motor problems

The stater gear is thrown up by the quick spinning of the starter motor. It is on "ramps" that move it up. They can get corroded or gummed up. It should have a very light or dry lubricant on them.
Also if the motor is worn it may not accelerate with enough "snap"
If the battery is weak or the connections are corroded, you can get the same result. Hope this helps.

Citroen troubleshooting

well since the starter was only 2 months old i am betting its an ignition short. When u turn the key, the solenoid on the starter engages the bendix gear with the engines flywheel and then energizes the starter motor. And when u release the ignition the solenoid and the starter motor should de-energize. hope this helps you.

Hi i have 1995 honda vfr 750 cc it would start sometimes it wont it would just sound like grinding i have replace the selinoid stater motor was check at the dealer said is perfect working i have bought new...

If your starter motor always spins but the motor only cranks over intermittently, you have a bad starter clutch. Replace the large starter gear and the three rollers in the one way clutch and the motor should turn over every time you hit the starter button. Parts #3 & #14 .

When i turn the key on it sounds like the car is already started

That grinding noise is the starter motor gear not meshing with the flywheel gear most probably caused by a worn starter motor gear or weak solenoid inside the stater motor. You'll have to replace the starter motor to repair the car.
