Starter Problems?

I took my Rebel for a quick ride after work
It had a little trouble starting, would turn over just not start like it wasn't getting gas. Anyhow got it running headed out for a bit. When I got home I shut off then tried to restart it and got a sound like at 22 seconds into this video

tired to start a couple of times and only got the "spinning" sound. Let it sit for about 30 seconds, tried to start it and it fired right up.

Someone in the comment of the video said it could be the "Starter motor clutch"

Just looking for opinions

Thanks

Yes, it sounds like the starter clutch isn't engaging.

Is there any type of fix for this, or just need to replace

Will a second Generation start clutch fit a first generation

They sell rebuild kits on ebay, and possibly Amazon. That's what I would do if it were mine. Or you might find a complete low mileage starter on ebay or craigslist.

You can buy the parts to rebuild the one you have.

is this it?

Edit: Think that may be for the starter itself

No that is a starter rebuild kit. You need 3 each of parts 7, 8, 26 in this diagram.

Thanks Mojo
Parts come to $35 plus shipping on Bike Bandit
Hopefully I can find them a bit cheaper somewhere, couldn't find kits on ebay or Amazon
If not I may just go with this

Anyone know where A kit can be purchased from
I have tried a few sites like Bike Bandit, Motosports, Cheapcycycleparts... and they are around $40 - 50 shipped. These sites don't have a "kit" you just buy the parts

I have seen kits for other bikes for around $20, but can't find one for the Rebel

Anyone know a place?
