hello i have a 1996 daytona that i might have to split the case to fix a starter gear. when i try to start it, the starter would turn and crank the motor once over then there would be a loud sound. sounds like metal hitting metal. im thingking it may have to do with the starter sprag gears? anytips would be cool.

Tons of info on this (yes it is probably a starter sprag) in the T3 Sport Touring forum, where all the original T3 carbed bikes are. Go there and search/read-up on 'sprag'.

You won't have the hatch so yes, it's a split case fix and a bit involved, but some have had success actually repairing the sprag with a new spring and saving $300 in parts. Lots of life left in this bike for sure.
