yes, there is going to be oil behind the side cover. Stand the bike upright on a rear stand and it will help control spillage, but have a drain pan underneath it just to be safe. It does sound like a starter clutch issue, usually not too big of a deal to replace.

Also you can pull the starter motor out, hook it to a battery and see if the shaft pops out. It's the kind of starter motor that pops the shaft out to engage the idler gear to start the motor.

So an update on the bike i pulled out the starter and it was woking as it should so i took off the cover on the left side to figure out what the issue and the main gear that has the starter clutch is in was very sloppy and moved alot sounds like its going to be the starter clutch and tips on changing it do i have to split the case or can i just pull off the charging system with a flywheel puller and just throw it on there
