New starter?


Recommended Posts

Just went to gas up the bike. Started fine in the driveway but when I fired it up at the gas station it made sort of a clangy-grindy noise. Did it again at the bank and back in the garage. Time for a new one? Just over 60K on the bike. Also, what's reasonable to pay for one. I see Valeo's for around $200 and 'aftermarket' for about $70. Not looking to cheap out on these sort of things, just wondered what the difference is.

Thanks, David, I'll let you know how it goes. Half that 90 minutes is just going to be getting the plastic off... ;)

So what happened? I ended putting a cheap starter for $58. Shipped to the house. I did the cleaning, worked a lot better, but once hot would do that 2 second delay before turning over. So I installed a cheap new one. See how long it last.
