    Not great but its still probably repairable.  File the magnet down and JB weld that sucker. 

    There are probably some on ebay as well. 

    Not sure if its the same part number but this might work.

      I'd say it is. But I'm not sure how the dealer/Yamaha thinks about Rick doing the work. They may want a 'certified Yamaha mechanic' to install it in order for the warranty to be valid. Or they may not give a crap. Who knows. So dont pitch that old starter yet Rick!

      In any reguard it can always be wose Rick. At least its an easy fix and you'll be back on the road soon.

      I agree, don't chuck it yet! Your dealer should be shown this. They might be able to get you some kind of Yamaha policy replacement because of the failure. Also, Yamaha if they knew about this would probably go after whoever manufactures the starter for them, and if its a trend of more than a few, that's how recalls get started. Hit em up and see what they will do for you!

      Good luck!

      Seems Yamaha knew about this and finally did an upgrade.


      http://www.mybikeforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=24031

      from the above link

      By the way there in new part number, it is 1D7818900100, the new part number according Yamaha is being issue due a upgrades in the current starter now offered on the 2012 Yamaha Raider. They said they weren't issuing a recall though due to the magnets issue, although it has been presiously reported . This part # is the same used on the Stratoliner and Rooadliner Models with the 1900.

      On non-safety related equipment failure, they will most likely just upgrade the part in question rather than do a full on recall. Your bike not starting won't get you into a wreck.  If the brakes are failing (for example) that would be entirely different.

      I just went ahead today and ordered the new upgraded Starter from Tejas. I did not want the hassle of hauling the bike 50+ mile one way to the dealer and then having to wait on them. May mention this to them but doubt I can use my YES to get reimbursed.

      I would rebuild the old one for a spare, But Yamaha don't sell the housing with Magnets, or the Armature.  >:( WTF

      Because they don't manufacture it. They get starters already built so they sell them that way.

      They probably don't want us rebuilding it. Saves too much money. I've had those certified yamaha monkeys jack with my bike the whole time it's been covered.  I finally let it go this month.  Three biggest things that stuck in my mind with them were
      1) brand new v&h pipes scratched at install
      2) chip that they wouldn't repair first 6 mos I had it.  Said I did it. It was under dash by 1/8 th inch. Lol.  I dint do it
      3) crammed new 240 avon on against upper cobra belt cover and test drove it sizzling the fine edge of side wall off.   Called me 3 1/2 hrs later when the mechanics were gone and service rep said they weren't responsible for aftermarket part issues. 

      Other situations too! Combination of three shops.  None worth a damn. Can't be trusted.

      What brand is the starter?  Denso?  May can get parts to rebuild it from the manufacturer of the starter

      I have no clue. I do have the parts still in a box. At least the Armature is fine and reusable, as well as the two ends off the old starter. ;D
