At first the starter sometimes did not spin, all I could hear was the clicking sound of the relay. I thought it was the battery, but after trying everything I found that the connection between the rotor winding and commutator was bad (had that soldered) - it was fine for about a month.
Now again problems - the starter spins, but it seems that it either spins to slow (another bad connection ?) or the starter clutch is slipping.
I would replace the starter motor, but the price is a bit high here in Europe (360 $), since there is no one that can assure me that it is not going to fail again within the next year or two. The KTM part is 230 $, it makes me wonder if my next bike should be orange.
The bike usually starts first kick.
Any suggestions ?

Finally got sick of it's inconsistancy, and just removed all of the starter related components and just kick start it.
