I was looking around ahwile back for a 2006 starter(same as 2005 starter?) and the dealership in town wanted $270. A search of some online yamaha parts sites showed some prices slightly under $200. Just do a google search for yamaha will bring up some online merchants.Try TT OEM also.I could not find a aftermarket starter.
BTW...the brush's can be purchased seperatly and installed easily for far less than a new starter.that is why most starters quit working.The armature if it is fried can not be purchased seperatly.The manual goes into how to rebuild a starter.It is pretty easy.Make sure you align the timing marks on the can when assembling.

the oem store has it for 192. man that is steep. its insane that yamaha gets this much. that is almost 5% of the purchase price of the bike.
