my '82 GL 1100 is such a joy to ride but about 2 months ago it wouldnt start , it just clicked and clicked in the starter ..... SO I changed the starter with a New one ( $ 235 in Canada) and it went well .

However last week I went to start the bike and I inavertantley had it in 2nd or 3rd . it went clunk clunk and didnt start .
now the starter then just spins , the Honda dealer offered ideas.

Today I removed the starter again , checked out the sprocket and the chain and put it all back together .
the starter still just spins .......... I cant tell if it is spinning the sprocket inside or not
any thoughts ?
Thanks in advance

well i tried the oil thing ........... did a flush and then put in a light oil , I had to push start it and it ran great ,,,,,,,,,, but after a nice 50 km (30 mile ride ) ,,,,,,, the starter still sounds like it just spins I cant tell if its spinning the sproket or is it just the starter .......... the dealer suggested a Tranny pull 9hrs labour at 85 an hour .....
I am open to any other thoughts, but won't stick around for any.
