MAINTENENCE--ELECTRICAL
A. Segments
Using the highest ohmmeter range, measure the
re-
sistance between the commutator and the shaft.
If
there is any reading at all, the armature has a short
and must be replaced.
A. Shaft
Even if the foregoing checks show the armature
to
be
good, it may be defective in some manner not
readily detectable with an
ohmmeter.
If all other
starter motor and starter motor circuit components
check good, but the starter motor still does not turn
over or only turns over
weakly,
replace the armature
with a new one.
Field coils
Using the x 1
n
ohmmeter range, measure the re-
sistance between the + side carbon brush and the
starter motor terminal.
If there is not close to zero
ohms, the field coils have an open circuit and the yoke
assembly must be replaced.
A. Starter Motor Terminal

Side Carbon Brush
Using the highest ohmmeter range, measure the re-
sistance between the
+
side carbon brush and the yoke
(housing).
If there is any meter reading, the coils are
shorted
to
ground and the yoke assembly must be re-
placed

Motor
Clutch
The motorcycle uses the roller-type one-way clutch
for the starter clutch.
If the
rollers
or the starter clutch gear hub becomes
damaged or worn, the rollers may lock in place so that
the
starter
motor will not disengage when the engine
starts.
On the other hand, roller or gear hub damage
could prevent the clutch from engaging properly, causing
the
starter
motor to run freely without transmitting
power.
Clutch inspection
Remove the left engine cover and starter idle gear
(Pg.
79), and turn the starter clutch gear by
hand.
The starter clutch gear should turn clockwise freely,
but should not
turn
counterclockwise.
