FS650e Starter Spinning.

Afternoon chaps,

After a winter lay up i'm just trying to sort the odds and ends on my '04 650 'berg.
The first thing I need to sort is the starter just spinning when using the electric start.
Is there a repair kit i can get? what do i need before i tear anything down? I'm just pulling the decomp lever in at the minute, letting it spin up and then dumping it. I could use the kickstart yeah but i'm chicken and don't want it to launch me through the garage roof.

Any help much appreciated.

Probably your Sprague clutch or freewheel, plenty of info on this site if you do a search. There's a shimming mod that should help. New parts available from Trevor Pope if you need them.
