Recently I went for a ride and on the way back from the trails it started storming really bad and on the way back to the trailor there is a long straight where I opened it up through all 5 gears. I parked it for a few minutes until the storm passed over and when I went to start it up to pull it on the trailor the starter spun over really fast like it wasnt engaging. I figured the starter one-way must have went but there was no warning, I stalled out a few times on the trails and it would start right back up flawlessly. I went ahead and purchased a new one-way and I installed everything back and now it will not do anything at all, I only hear a click coming from I believe the solenoid under the seat. I didnt take notice to how the brushes on the starter itself were so Im not sure if there is a specific way they are supposed to go. I would like to repair it myself instead of taking it to the stealership. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

what is the voltage of the battery? A clicking starter relay is generally low battery voltage or poor battery/ground connections. Did you reconnect the ground wire on the upper part of the stator cover after you repaired the one-way?

I was thinking the same thing so I charged the battery and had the same outcome. I believe I did connect it back, I will double check when I get home from work. Anything else it could be? How are the brushes on the actual starter are supposed to be arranged?

did you disassemble the starter? the brushes just sit in their respective housings in the end of the starter motor.

So I took the starter back apart and it was the brushes, I installed them correctly and it works now. Thanks for all your help, I really appreciate it.

Yeah they sure did man. I needed 4 hands to get them back in there right. Is there an easier way to get them aligned in case I have to ever do it again.
