Sometimes starts ok when cold when hot no start engine turns to slow? starter clutch makes some severe noises while cranking replaced Battery just in case, checked battery leads connections, no fault codes stored in ECU checked by dealer but still the Same.

Do you think the seller knew it had a problem with starting ? It does sound like starter clutch is about to fail completely, in which case potentially expensive fix, as you've probably sussed already.

Have you tried bump starting it using the existing battery..? That would narrow down the possibilities a lot.

Problems brewing up with the sprag clutch won't make it turn over slow.
A slow starter motor will lead you to problems with the sprag clutch, but that's another thing all together.

Check everything, and every connection, in the starter circuit and service the starter motor (check / renew brushes). Do this as a matter of some urgency or you will end up with sprag problems.

Yes I agree with John Nelson check for lazy Starter Motor, remove it strip and inspect Brushes and magnets on body incase they have lost there bonding and are stuck to the armature

I don't agree. If the sprag is nearly fubar then it will give the appearance of turning over slowly since it will be slipping rather than driving. That's what the clanking is.

Not saying its not the starter motor but it could be the sprag.

This has got me thinking. I have just acquired a '97 595. Put new Motobatt in it. On starting, it is slow to turn over, almost like the battery is drained, then it fires into life - so I might borrow a starter motor see if it makes a difference - thanks for the advice chaps:smile:

you can swap out the batt and starter leads for heavier cable to help with the current draw..nite and day difference on how quick the starter spins :thumbup:
