Can't help with the starter but have you considered "compression relief" ?

just curious- why you after another starter? kickback/kickout? no crank? might be something as simple as a timing adjustment, loose cable, or poor battery (usually a battery).....

if you go from a 1.4/1.6kW starter to a 2.0kW, you will need to also upgrade the cables....

He (my Brother) bought the bike with a bad starter and has been jumping the solenoid to ride, I guess hes ready to fix it right so I will get off his ass, lol. :P

if he's jumping the solenoid....he needs to start at the beginning before just putting a starter. make sure that there's 12V at the purple wire on the solenoid with the button down, and so on....

He has his mechanic check it over for him, hes the one who said it was the starter. I thought he might have just been trying to sell a starter, but he didnt have one to sell so I took him at his word. J&P has the one we need but the damn thing is $560.00, and he dont have it to spare right now, so I thought I might see if I could find one cheaper on here.

ok...

if the bike starts when he jumps the solenoid, the starter is fine, but the low tension circuit (solenoid/relay/switches) is bad. if he needs to physically jump the actual starter itself, then it can be a starter, battery or cables.

i guess what i'm saying is that starter assemblies ain't cheap, and changing one is a pain...just wanting to make sure what he does solves his priblem.....
