starter or solenoid

On my '02 RG the starter makes an awful gnashing, grinding sound. The solenoid doesn't seem to stay engaged when starting it. It will turn it over then quit then turn it over again if I hold the start button. This just started a few months after replacing the starter and solenoid with a stronger than stock one. Anyone out there have similar problems? Thanks GEZR.

My guess: 31516-94A - Starter Clutch Assembly.

It just may be the compensator sprocket in the primary.

My guess is the battery or the starter clutch. Had 2 of em go out on my 02. One of em took out teeth on the ring gear.

Well we are all guessing but being the bike is a 02 it just may be possible that the compensator is going bad. Not saying that there isn't other issues that can cause the problem but it still wouldn't hurt to check the comp. Also when you have the primary cover off you can check everything inside the primary. Hell it could just be a worn out primary chain tensioner and the primary chain may be binding up.
