    I did PM WooDog - but there is a problem with my account receiving PM's.  It has always been that way.  Members PM me and it does not appear in my message box.
    As far as I know my setting are set for me to receive messages but they don't appear in my box.
    So I don't know if WooDog received the PM or not.
    WooDog if if you have a connect chime in here...

      Did you check to make sure it's not just the brushes that need replacing? I've starter issues twice now. Both times the brushes replacement was the right fix. A lot cheaper than a new starter too.
      Sometimes it's a little better to travel than to arrive.

      At first I thought the problem was the starter relay.  But when I replaced the relay the problem continued.  When starting sometimes the relay would just click.  At other times nothing would happen - no noise or anything.  Them I experimented with putting the bike in second gear rolling the bike to get the motor to move.  After doing that I could get the bike to start...  I installed a new battery also so I assume that the problem is the starter.   Any thoughts from more knowing folks?

      I was having similar issues. I bought a starter and a relay. Starter got here first - and that fixed it. After replacing it - took the old one apart - magnets inside left loose and were not spaced evenly. Got the new starter in July - so far no regrets.

      I know 3 people that have used that Ebay starter, cranks faster than the OEM one IMO....and you can buy 4 of them for the cost of 1 OEM starter.

      I recommend also disassembling the starter to check the magnet spacing and the brush set.

      $170 motor city reman new
      $186 not ebay Ronayers.com not sure but doubt oem
      $300 not ebay Dennis K sells ricksmotorsporelectrical
      $300 RicksMotorsportElectrical direct

      $195 used oem 6,777 miles

      DB Electrical had some iffy comments when googled

      I have a Starter from Rick's Motorsport arriving on Tuesday - so I'll see how that one works out.

      I just ordered a new Yamaha OEM starter from Partzilla.com $195 inc tax and shipping.  Said it was in stock, last one.

      RonAyers - around the same price it looks like but I didn't verify by going thru the checkout process
      YamahaPartsHouse - $188 but out of stock so it would take them a few extra days
