    Starter Noise

    Ok after 7200 trouble free miles my Tw seems like an issue may be creeping up. Whenever the starter motor is engaged it makes a noise like a honking goose. It still cranks the engine up, but anyone within 200 yards stares over at it. This cant be good and I assume the starter has some sort of clutch, sprag, something that disengages and this may be the cause of the sound. Would like to get this taken care of before it wont start. Anybody ever have something like this happen?

    No direct experience, but sounds like it could be the starter clutch

    STARTER & CLUTCH ONE WAY BEARING Fits YAMAHA TW200 TRAILWAY 200 2003-2015 | eBay

    Not promoting this ebay seller, just providing a photo, for your reference.

    Newer vehicles have been using overrunnnig clutches to avoid starter damage when the button is pushed unintentionally.

    So , It turned out that the bushing on the brush end of the starter failed. 1.29$ and a couple hours later all is good

    Mine is having the exact same noise. Where did you purchase the Bushing from?
