2004 Rockster Starter Issue


Recommended Posts

Bought the bike last week and had to install stick coils and my independent BMW mechanic said the starter will go out next (bendix). Sometimes when I push starter button it does not turn over, just makes a constant noise, not a clicking noise. Other times it will start immediately however if it does'nt start the noise (whiring) begins without turning over. Batt is ok. Could someone please direct me to a post that shows how to remove starter. I called Euro Moto Electric and they have a kit to "tune-up" starter for $15.00. They also sell the Valeo for $189 or their brand for $119 (Taiwan). Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks

Hi Bill.

You'll find a whole raft of info about starter motor work.


Basically, if it's a clean up and lube, you can do it yourself .

See below:




If your motor is jamming, then the chances are you are suffering from detached stator magnets.

The only reliable solution to this is a new or service exchange item.

Contacted the Ga starter company and they did not have a $113 starter for my Rockster, their price was $179. Thanks anyway.
