I noticed it a couple times back in the beginning of the riding season but now its worse. When i hit the start button i hear the starter not fully engaging and a loud grinding noise. It happened very intermitenly, maybe once or twice every 20 or 30 startups. Now its happening more often. A buddy heard the noise and thought it may be the starter Unfortunately im out of warranty so i dont want to take it to the dealer. I know the starter is fairly easy to remove if that is the problem. If anyone has any ideas or if this has happened to you please let me know what the fix was. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
