Any tips on improving my starter drive system? I understand this has been a common problem on viragos. I'm lucky if the starter fully engages 25 percent of the time. Maybe I just need to "let it grind" until it finally engages, but I despise doing it. It sounds terrible. I noticed the spring loaded starter gear has some wear on the teeth from trying to engage. I'm planning on replacing this gear, but am wondering if there is anything else I can do to improve the starter's performance.
