Maybe you starter motor is damaged.

Obd cable dont work with trek.

If you have a walbro ecu you need a rs232 cable kit have a look at tuneecu.com there are infos how make a cable kit or buy one.

There are 2 versions out there

1. rs232 kabel with adapter (sometimes connections is a little unstable)

2. Usb/amp cable kit (better solution)

If you want a set let me know I sell them if wanted.

Same thing sometimes happens with my Tornado, but only at shutdown. It depends where in the cycle the crank stops. There are three (I think) natural resting points dependant on the cam lobes. If it stops between them, the crank will then rapidly move to one. If it means going backwards, it will, and that's where the clunk comes from. The cam chain is running backwards and not held tight by the crank.

That's my theory. I may be wrong..

Yes same noise happens occasionally on my bike . I'd put the noise down to the engine reversing back slightly at shutdown and maybe moving the sprag clutch a little . Freaks me out lol. Pulling the clutch in on shutdown helps I found

I think it is this trait that causes z25 / clutch retaining nut to loosen and alternator rubbers to disintegrate.......any opinions?

It's the sprag clutch.
Not that hard to swap but you need to remove the z25 gear, and to do that you need to remove the clutch.

On my sprag all of the bolts were loose so it's vital to do this before anything goes fubar.

I would recomend anyone doing the z25 check or swap the Sprag clutch and visa versa.

I'll see if i find the picks of my Sprag when i swapped it.

For me ut was the 6 bolts here that were loose (unscrewed by them self) so the assembly kicked against a sprocket and worned out the sprag.
It will only get worse over time.
Use proper licktite and correct nm.

I see alibaba etc are doing the sprag kits very cheap, i know it's a pattern part but there's a lot of benelli in asia, what do you think, would you fit one, by the sounds of it they can't be worse than the original parts.

I wouldn't buy vital parts on Alibaba or similar.
I'd buy them from renown shops like Bennet's and Maniac Motors.
If you pop Alex at Maniac a mail he will tell you what you need down to the last washer.

I buy a ton of stash from China, some parts are great like brake and clutch levers etc, but i don't buy brake parts, shocks, steering dampers and so on.
Could be ok, but i wouldn't risk it.

How can you know those parts were not originally sourced from china/Taiwan. Most bearings and accompanied parts are mostly made there nowadays. Benelli itself was bought by the Chinese, don't tell me that the Chinese paid 4x as much for the italians to make bearings and rollers to put in their engines when they have their own.
