That is not good, and an indication of improper starting procedures. You can fix that and re-install the starter to see what happens, but my guess is that the starter clutch is destroyed....

The starter may be OK...I'd take it apart and check it before I ordered a new one.

By mentioning improper starting procedures I think he's referring to not advancing the throttle grip when starting the bike. Advancing the throttle grip also advances the timing which causes detonation and could damage the starter mechanism.

I can tell you first hand, it happened to me. My starter pretty much exploded on me at a grub stop one day, both bolts sheared. You can bump it off if the starter is jacked, but I don't recommend it, only in an emergency. I bumped mine and got it to work with extreme caution. I ended up replacing my bolts and cleaning up the starter pretty good and it worked like a champ. Look, the starter clutch was fine, just cheap bolts. I work aviation, so bolts were no issue to get ahold of. Also, like the guys before me said, do not throttle the bike while trying to start it, bad ju-ju. I didn't do it, I just had bad luck. Good luck, and be sure to upgrade the bolts to something a little stronger.
