Typically you will need parts numbers 28115-MEY-670 (outer clutch $65), 28125-MEY-671 (one way clutch $79), 28127-MS2-612 (friction ring $4) and a clutch cover gasket (11394-HP1-600 $20). You may also need a water pump cover gasket, coolant, oil and another oil filter. I always change the oil filter whenever I change the oil. You may cheat on the oil change by tipping the machine up on it's LH side to avoid draining the oil, but this only works if you can avoid getting coolant in the crankcase when you pull the clutch cover off. Typically when the starter motor spins but dosen't "grab", the starter motor is fine and the starter clutch is bad. But there are a lot of parts involved. I have seen broken starter motor shafts, teeth worn off gears (there is like 3 gears from the starter motor shaft to the starter clutch), loose bolts and bad bearings that can all cause the same symptom.
