Starting is controlled by a starter clutch behind the stator (left side). As the starter spins, it turns a gear and bearing mechanism that locks up to engage and turn the crankshaft. When not in use (engine running), the bearing free-wheels as it is a one-way mechanism. IF indeed your starter is spinning and the starter clutch is not, it's possible the starter clutch is faulty, but they don't really fail unless the bike is really old. IF this is your issue, then use the YES.
Now, if you mean the engine is turning over really fast and not starting, that's another matter..... ECU may think it needs to add fuel (cold start mode), so the fix is hold wide open throttle and crank for a few seconds. I recommend 10-15 second bursts... make sure your battery is fully charged first, might have to do this more than once. Did you start it, run it with no warmup and shut it down? That will fool the ECU (sometimes).
Keep yer stick on the ice....
