Customer Question

What way should starter motor on my muv 700 big red turn. I bought a new one and installed it and all it does is spin it never rolls motor over. I took it back off and hooked it up to test it and it spins counter clockwise

Hi
Welcome to JustAnswer

The starter clutch must be at fault, this transfers the rotary motion from the starter motor to the crank & disengages when the engine fires. This is a relatively common problem which can only be fixed by replacing the starter motor or just its internal parts depending on damage

what way should starter spin it is turning counter clockwise and I thought it was suppose to spin clockwise. And it's my understanding the starter clutch is in behind flywheel correct
Expert:  Bike-Doc replied 1 year ago.

The starter motor generally meshes with an idler gear which in turn meshes with the starter clutch, hence it turns the opposite way to which you'd think

Yes the starter clutch is behind the flywheel

I trust that has answered your question satisfactorily
If you are happy with my diagnosis then please rate my service good or above

The starter clutch is separate from the starter then correct.
Expert:  Bike-Doc replied 1 year ago.

Yes

HERE is a link to a site which shows & sells the parts in america

If the clutch outer is ok then just buy the internals (#28126-hno-a01)

Good Luck
