so i just bought an 03 predator 500 and it runs great.. but sometimes when i go to start it, it turn over for a second nd make this horrible clinking and banging noise which sounds like its in the bottom end but im not sure, then it starts after a few seconds. other times it will start the second i hit the start button. the motor has no ticks or anything when its running, it only makes that bad clanking noise when im starting it.. not sure if its part of the flywheel one way bearing or the starter or what.. please help

I would guess it's in the one way bearing. I've had other quads do this same thing and it was the one way bearing.

It can also be the bendix getting stuck out as well.-

That would be a good start. Check the bendix and make sure it goes in and out easily.
