You don't need to remove the starter itself. It's likely the bendix. You
need to open the flywheel cover, then remove the flywheel with a puller. If
the flywheel bolt (socket 17) was losed, then maybe the flywheel has spinned
over the crankshaft, damaging the flywheel key. If this is not the case, you
can be assured that the bendix is worn. If you have the possibility to try
with another bendix, do it, and you will confirm the problem. Then, you have
the choice to buy a new aftermarket bendix or repair yours. Yamaha now sells
also the components for that part, which wasn't the case some years ago.
