I know that the starter clutch questions have been beaten to death on this forum because I've read every post on the topic. Of course I've come across a situation not covered by any I've read.... I have had my 03' Raptor for a year now and have always found it a bit clunky when starting...... I assumed this was normal (due to the large bore engine compression) until I started reading this forum..... My concerns grew the more I read so today for the hell of it, I pulled out my oneway and found it in perfect condition. Yes it is OEM, before you ask... The race on my flywheel has some slight scuffing on it, but nothing drastic. There are no metal shavings inside the case or anything else I'd expect to find if there were any real issues!! Only the scuffing on the flywheel.Is it possible for the clutch to be failing with no visual evidence.... I mean, my clutch looks brand new!!!??? I'm perplexed because I've never heard how a new Raptor would sound when started for comparison..... I don't really want to spend the $350 CDN to replace things which don't yet need replacement. Does anyone have a picture of a flywheel with a normal amount of wear on it???? And exactly how smooth should the starting sound...... I don' t know if that can be described... but any info would be great.....
