15 HP Kawi Starter Help

I have a 15 HP FH451V. I just replaced the battery because it went bad. It wouldn't hold a charge. When I put the neww battery in and went to start it, it just makes a grinding sound from the starter.

I took the plastic shroud off and the little gear on the starter does not even pop up and touch the flywheel. I grabbed it with my fingers and it has no power at all. The gear will spin when you turn the key, but it has no torque.

Does this just sound like a bad starter? Anything that I can do to make it work again?
