      The problem is inherent with all T3 engines, if you let the battery get weak the starter bendix won't engage fully and that can whipe out the sprag clutch. If this happens then you'll be pulling the engine out and splitting the cases. This can happened to any 885.

      I certainly don't remember anyone having any problems with the sprag clutch on the TBS. The older Thunderbird seemed to have a problem now and then as well as some of the other T3 based bikes. Tiger and Trophy IIRC.

      Good Morning All,


      Looking for some information on my 1998 TBS.


      I am reading about some Thunderbird having issues with the Sprag clutch.  I also read that the Sport models had an upgraded version of it put in.


      Has anyone had issues with their Sprag clutch in their sport model?
