Default Starter Clutch / Drive??

Okay, I believe I have this figured out from searches but looking for confirmation...

First...lesson learned...I had no idea cold weather starting was even an issue!! Now I know...

Anyway 2011 Cross Country 30,000 ish miles.

I started the bike to be in a local parade. It was 15 degrees and the bike was cold. It started, but as I released the starter button and started to turn around I heard "clunk" and it stalled. I hit the starter button again and all I get is a "zing" sound from the starter. The engine does not crank.

From research I believe it's the starter drive or clutch... can someone please help with correct terminology and maybe a link to the correct part.

Thanks!!!

Now I'll go back to crying in my beer after hearing the latest news....

yup clutch is gone. Per manual you'll need a special tool to pull it.
The special tool is a bolt M20x1.50x25mm. I think thats a stander oil drain plug on cars

This is too late for the OP, but for you others, here's how to start your bike in the cold. Step 1: Assuming you've had the battery on a float charger, place a room heater (preferably one with a fan) near the engine an hour or more prior to starting. That warms the engine, the oil, the battery, the clutch and the tranny. Makes life easier on the battery and starter. There is no step two, except having an oil like 5W-40 Rotella T-6 makes for easier cold starts.

Isn't this why people say to keep the throttle cracked open as you start it, or am I thinking of something else?

Yes it is, to prevent kick back and/or backfiring. Yes, do hold the throttle open about 1/8 turn when starting.

I don't know so I'll ask. Is the starter clutch in the primary or outside behind a cover. Ok I looked and its just in front of the primary. So that shouldn't be to bad.

Starter sprag gear is the one that usually goes out. It is inside the primary....hence the need for the special tool mentioned above to remove the flywheel.
