Quelling noise on start up and shut down
I hit the starter on my 2009 Vision with 90K miles and it turns over fine and starts right up but I am hearing a squealing or dragging sound for a second or two. My first thought is the starter motor is staying engaged for a moment. I can try and record it if needed. I am hoping like many issues with this bike, someone has already experienced the problem and figured out what it is.
I watched the video on rebuilding the starter motor but I don’t understand how the starter motor bearing could be making noise when I shut the bike off. I also don’t see how this noise can be coming from the Sprage Gear. I could not find a video on that subject as someone suggested. Actually I could not find any videos on this site yet but maybe I am just not looking in the correct place.
