I finally got around to taking off the side cover, and it appears that the starter does work, but the gear has issues hooking up, is it supposed to be like this? There's a video on youtube: here

Is there a good way to disassemble beyond this? What's needed do you think? This is the first bike i've worked on. I assume the flywheel bolt is RH Thread? What do I need to do after that? Is it gonna come off nicely with just that one bolt, or is there more?

Common issue.The starter clutch is gone.The bolt is L.H. thread.You will need a 18mm X 1.5 puller (It is RH thread). Once you have the flywheel off the clutch is accessible.Check it for cracks around the rollers.If good you can buy new springs & rollers separately. ;) :)

Having trouble locating the bolt for that anywhere local, any good places online to order that bolt from? And Do I just need to thread the bolt in and it will push it off, or do I need something similar to a flywheel puller in addition to the bolt?

Thanks

Available from many online dealers. I couldn't locate one locally.

And many others. Nothing else needed except a hammer. Turn and tap. I recommend you use a soft (brass) head hammer if possible. If not, don't tap to hard.

You will need a flywheel holder to keep it from turning.

Yes.You thread it in & the flywheel pops off.Be sure you don't loose the key out of the keyway.A strap wrench is great to hold the flywheel from turning. :)
