Motorcycle Questions? Ask a Mechanic.
which way is the starter pinion spinning?
did you disconnect battery cables when you replaced the belt?
tell me everything you can.
I don't do phone calls.
please respond here.
you should never remove the primary drive without first disconnecting the battery cables. at least the Negative cable.
I have only seen the bolt back out when the battery is connected to the starter backwards.
since the pinion should turn CW, I see no problem.
I will opt out so the other experts can see you question. maybe one of them has seen this before.
best of luck.
