It sounds like either the shaft or the gear is worn. Also when it is apart try to wiggle the gear or spindle shaft to check for worn bushings which would caus that problem.

OR
the over run clutch of the pinion gear has failed and is not locking the gear in the drive position

1990 zx10 starter just spins does not engage the motor to turn over how do I fix it I've already replace with a new starter...same issues...


the solenoid is not moving the pinion gear forward to engage in the flywheel so check that you have connected the wire from the starter switch correctly. Next point to check --if this is an auto matic vehicle ,check that the flex plate has not broken away and not in the position for the pinion gear to engage ti.

Pinion gear dosnt spin with the shaft


Hi Anonymous, if you are talking about the starter drive gear the insides have some type of components that centrifugal forces them to grab or lock into permanently fixed counterparts. Never had one apart but the gear only spins one way and locks the other way. If you have one that spins both ways it has failed and needs to be replaced. Good luck

Starting problems


I am guessing that you have a problem properly engaging the starter pinion into the ring gear to start the engine Check the starter pinion for correct adjustment and check pinion teeth for wear. Check the ring gear for wear from where the pinion fails to engage properly before spinning.

I have a 1999 Gilera Runner 180FXR, New bat 12V 9 amps. Starter turns and spins pinion gear but won't engage starter ring. If it does it turns ver slow or won't turn engine over. In manual it


Yep, not enough amps to engage the starter clutch, and when ti does engage, not enough amps to turn the engine. You need a 12 amp battery.
