Hey all, been awhile since I have been up here! Anyways I have an 05 400ex that I recently picked up a few months ago and I'm having some troubles getting it started. The starter every once in awhile would just click and with a light tap to it it would fire right up so I took it apart and found that the brushes were worn out almost completely. So I got the new brushes installed in the starter and bolted everything back up and the starter itself works great now, but now it is not engaging the flywheel. Now I have done some research and everything I see seems to say that the starter clutch is bad. Prior to taking the starter off everything worked fine (other than having to tap it) and showed no sign of the starter clutch going out do they just up and quit like this?
