Starter Question

Post by DoorCountyWI »

I have something that is only happening in cold weather on my 86 Aspencade. If the bike is cold, (never happens after it is warmed up) I will hit the starter button and I hear the gear spin and then at the end of the spin, sound like it is engaging with something. The very next time I hit it everything is fine. Any ideas? I have heard some guys on here talk about stuff getting gunked up. Sound like a case of that from someone's experience? Thanks.
