starting problems

i have a 01 400ex that was having some problems starting and i thought it was the starter so i went and bought a new and it still wont start. so the problem im having is the starter will spin for about 5 seconds then turn the motor over and so on. im thinking it might be the starter clutch but im not sure. maybe a lose flywheel? im pretty new to this so any help would appreciated

If the starter motor runs and the engine only starts to turn after letting the starter motor sun for a few seconds - it is definitely the starter clutch.

A quick, cheap temporary fix would to be change the oil and fill it with 5w30 - the lower viscosity oil will let the one way clutch 'bite' through the oil film easier. Old dirty oil only exacerbates the problem.

No - 5w30 oil will not hurt the engine

The starter clutch is on the back side of the flywheel - need a special puller to get it off - a jaw puller will damage the flywheel - the starter clutch can be purchased with these two part numbers; 28110-HN1-A70 gear (72t) 128.85 & HO28125-HN1-003 clutch outer $161.80 - you might want to replace the 6 allen bolts that hold it to the flywheel; 96700-08016-10 bolt, socket (8X16) $1.20 ea and you will need the gasket, oil and an oil filter.

You will need the puller, a 1/2' air or electric impact driver, an 8mm allen socket, and some blue locktite
