    That all of the engagement the bendix is seeing on the clutch drum starter ring gear...

    The bike was built a few years back from after/market parts...
    5 in a 4 tranny, S&S 93 inch Cone Shovel, a nice bike to say the least about it...

    Well, will ya look at that fine job of MICKEY-MOUSE-ing ...!!!

    OK, now to lick somebodyelse's calf here...

    First try was to order a new starter shaft, thinking that the shaft that has been used was from the 65-69 era...
    Ordered a 70 to 84 shaft, it came in, pulled out the shaft that the bike had and, GREAT SCOT .. !!!
    It was the same as the new shaft....

    Alright, now I'm thinking it has to be something is up with the starter .. ???
    Thought perhaps the starter was for the belt final drive models, this bike has a chain final drive.
    Tried for over a week talking with four diff. Fellas at Spyke to ID the starter... Sent lots of photos..
    Wanted them to pull from their stock both starters (Belt & Chain) and get some dimensions....
    Seems that Spyke has no numbers on their starters, zip !!!

    They couldn't help being the factory is across town with no-way to talk to someone that is somewhat a Tech...
    OK .... Now WTF ... !!!

    Talked it over with a tech at Tech Cycle, we came to the conclusion that the starter was for the belt drive models.
    So, with a grain of salt I ordered one from them after getting a Go-ahead from the owner.

    Kick-ass in a word ... ^^

    It came in today ...
    For a look see to see what the diff. would be on the jackshafts, a little forensic investigation went down...

    Found both to be the same ....
