k75 starter drive

My 86 K75's starter is spinning when I push the start button but the thing wont engage and crank the engine. What's broken? How do I fix it?

Your starter sprag is gunky. Try some Rislone engine treatment to clean things up.

I had a similar experience, and found it to be a bad battery. I'd recharge the battery and it would start maybe once or twice and then just "whirrr" when I pushed the start button. New battery and it seems to be fine now.
