KLR600 Won't Start

This isn't the relay problem I read about in other posts. It sounds like one of the gears might be missing a tooth. Starter engages, then just spins. I thought it was the starter so I bought a new one. Sound is still present with either starter (lame). Any ideas before I pull the cover so I know what to look for? Thank you.

Marcus,
You need to look at a service manual and/or a parts screen. Probably the 'back-torque limiter' gear or possibly the sprag clutch.

That's what I thought. I looked at a parts screen and that looked like the likely suspect. Thank you pdwestman
