I have searched for posts on my specific issue and not found any that are relevant. My starter clutch is only catching periodically. If I roll the bike forward in gear and try again, it sometimes catches. 2nd time I have had this issue. Pulled motor first time and installed aftermarket springs, caps and rollers, but will never do that again, since they only lasted 6 months before problems came back. Yesterday, I pulled the motor again to replace the springs, caps and rollers with new OEM parts, but upon inspecting the stator rotor, found 2 caps Jammed inside the the recessed holes. I have soaked them is PB-blaster, no joy. Soaked in WD-40, no joy. I have heated up with propane, no joy. I have tried to wiggle them around using a 30 degree pick tool through the center hole of the cap....no joy. I also have another rotor from a 78 but which has part of a cap, or spring jammed At the bottom of one hole and cannot get that out either. I am pretty mechanically minded, but this one has me stumped. Any ideas before I bite the bullet and buy a used one from salvage yard? I removing the torx bolt which holds the offending cap assembly in place (hoping to drill out the stuck cap) but cannot get the part to move/slide out from underneath the top plate. Help!
