just woundering if other guys are having starter motor issues? i did not want to buy a new one (@$450 Aus) so it turn out the bush was worn out and needed to be replaced with a new brass sleeve. pretty poor after 18months use (1600kms) i kick start initially and e-start once engine is warm...
ps it was very clean inside the starter motor, no dirt no water

The owners manual explains it pretty well.

I bought new brushes at the dealer but now I need to see if the bushing is replaceable or if I will need to get a whole new endcap. I can't get the old bushing out with anything I have so I'll see if Yamaha has a special tool. If not I will have to drill it out or have it machined out so I don't wreck the endcap. What a PITA! Not even 2000kms on this bike either!

an auto electrician can do the whole job (replacement bush at the endcap side, check brushes and test cost $50)
once i got home i re-installed the starter, exhaust, plastics then pushed the magic button PRICELESS
