1982 GS1100GL - need starter clutch assembly, can't find on Eblag 12600-49850

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to the site.  I have a 1982 Suzuki GS1100 GL, shaft drive.  When trying to start motorcycle, all I get is starter spin/whine.  I think I need a new starter clutch assembly and have looked on Eblag and other parts places.  They have some parts but not entire assembly.  I've also looked online for motorcycle grave yards, etc. with no luck.  I've not taken the engine apart yet, but have consulted a mechanic.  It would seem that aftermarket parts for this cycle aren't made.  I'd really appreciate any suggestions.  Part # is 12600-4985 I think.  Does anyone know if any other Suzuki uses the same parts (like the GS850 or other.  Thanks for any help you can provide.  I might not have to have the entire unit but don't want to take it apart until I have parts, otherwise it's just junk.  OR can I use other parts?  Jim S.

Welcome to OSS 

First take off the left hand side cover and have a look. The springs (X3) can pop through the starter clutch wall (as the wall is thin) this is a easy fix  by welding up where they have came through (removed springs first ;)). Or it could just be the main bolt that's came loose. 

But first step before buying anything is to have a look.
