Question about BMW Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
The starter drive gear may not be engaging the flywheel properly. Remove the starter and apply battery voltage to the post and the case. The starter gear should turn. Hold it down tight!
With no power to the starter,the starter gear should turn freely only ONE way.

Sounds like your jack shaft isnt engaging into the bushing in your outer primary... you should pull off the outer primary and try carefully filing the edges off the bushing... Also check that the jack shaft has been properly installed.... This problem is common on customs

Did you try removing the starter and testing it on a "bench"? Sounds like it might be "jammin" up. Loose, misalignment, it's worth a try and doesn't cost anything. good luck

Try at stationary under heavy load with clutch to isolate, sounds serious, I'd check all transmission connections are right before riding again.
