Default Pull start problems

Hello, i have an xtm x-cellerator and i love it but the pull start is not working. it seems when u tug it it will turn the engine over about twice and then just spin nothing. its like the starter bearing( iguess thats what its called) is not gripping the pull start shaft. any hhelp?

Default cleaning

Have you tried to carefully take it apart and clean it up? I had the same problem but instead of fixing it I replaced the pull start witha spin start that was made to fit my motor. It is a pretty easy upfit from what I saw, and is pretty cheap to do. Just use a cordless drill with a clutch to protect the bearing.
