Re: Starter disenging before engine startup

Finally got to work on the bike and I pulled the starter and all gears off my 85 -750 with the first gen starter and installed them on the 82. All of my starter problems are now gone but I am not sure which part cured the problem. I am not going to start changing the parts back and forth to try and find the cause as I have a complete second gen set up for my 85. Thanks to all for your help and maybe someone else with the same condition can narrow it down to 1 fault. :thanks: :bg:

Hello Im a newborn at this whole motorcycle thing but I have an 81 xv750 and your issues sound exactly like mine my question is what all did you take off the newer bike to fix the problem?

I took the starter , all the gears and springs -therefore everything to start the bike but the crankshaft gear. Wish I could be of more help but as stated before I am not taking this %$#@%?$? :ops: thing apart again.
