I have an '06 WR 450 that had something odd happen the other day. I went to poke the starter, I could hear the solenoid snap shut and the starter motor moved like 1 degree and locked up. I could hear this high pitch wine (probably the battery dumping tons of juice). Went an manually kicked the bike and put it in gear, etc and shut it off. Went to poke the electric start, and Boom, it started right up ?? !! ??
Do I have a crappy spot on the stator of my starter motor that every time it lands there it makes poor contact?
Anybody seen this before?
