Re: Uh Oh! starter wizzing sprauge clutch sound
I removed the entire engine when I did mine, someone else has done it by dropping the transmission, removing the clutch, then removing the intermediate housing without dropping the engine out.
I would still drop the engine out if I had to do it again though. Considerably easier to do all the work with the engine sitting in front of you rather than on your back reaching up under the bike. Just my opinion though.
Just a little info for your future use, it is "sprag", not "sprauge".
These were invented decades ago by this company:

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
