I am new and I need help.I have seen on the net others describing my same exact issues and never seen an solution.I have a 2003 400 auto ATV 1200mi, the dreaded stator mag failure.I replaced them but the dang starter will not turn over the engine,loosen the side cover bolts and it will turn over.with the starter off,the shifter shaft off,leaving the middle starter gear on.I can reach in and turn that gear through the starter hole,now if I start to tighten the one big case bolt it will bind that gear,the gear has no washers on it.Its like it needs a thicker gasket,but I doubt that is the case.Now with just the upper gear by itself,it (leaving middle gear out)upper turns freely.So what happen to the clearance on the middle gear? Now if someone says "search button is your friend I might be a little guilty.I havent spent a lot of time on this forum just yet.My understanding is this is the same engine as the 400 Eiger Suzuki

Thank you for listening.
