I am fairly new to the atv scene and was wondering about my starter. It makes a clunking sound and stays engaged about 10 seconds after the engine is running. do I need a new starter or can it be rebuilt. any help would be appreciated. how hard is it to get starter off,any special tools? sorry its a 700

Its not the starter, its the starter drive or bendix. The starter just spins and makes the bendix spin. Ramps make it extend outward to the flywheel and then when the motor starts the bendix goes too fast and centrifugal force makes it retract. This is where you are having issues.

You can remove it and clean it out really well give it a bit of lubrication and it should be okay as long as the springs are good. They are not expensive so you might just want to replace it.
