Help. I have a 05 DS1000. Love it. However, I have been having issues with the starter. When I push the start button the engine turns over one time and the starter kicks out and spins for a second freely and quits. Please give some technical help. Jerry :)

Sounds like the starter sprag. There is a spring with one end that screws into the other end. Over time and use the spring will stretch, allowing the starter to spin but won't turn over the engine. I'd reference a Haynes or Desmo Times manual for the locations degree of difficulty to replace.

How many miles on it?

Mine had 15k miles or so on it when I replaced the sprag and gear.

In my case, the spring was no streched, but in several pieces, and thus the sprag, gear, and back-piece all needed replacement (as the gear and back-piece were scored).
