starter motor pooched

Parked my prowler in front of the house the other day wouldn't start or turn over or even click, just kind of a boing sound. Everything electrical worked and i cleaned conections and charged battery on 2amp. for 20 hours, Nothing. My bike has always started like a 1970's chrysler terrible sound have to back off the key half the time and retry to start it. I pulled the starter off and the spline on it was missing a whole tooth a the rest were half missing!! I put on new starter and set valves while at it. The bike starts like never before unbelievable like an extention of my arm quick and crisp. Talked to dealer he say poor set valve could be leading to the problem. Just thought i'd throw this out there in case any of you guys got poor starting issues
