I have a wr450 2006 and my electric start sounds weak. I thought it was the battery so I bought a new battery and it still sounds weak. When i press the button it sounds like the battery is weak but it still starts the engine. I can do this all day and it won't drain the battery but just sounds weak. Is this a sign of the starter going bad?
Try cleaning the connections at the battery and the starter.....maybe there's some corrosion. Otherwise, check the operation of the decomp system, maybe it's a little higher compression during start?

check your manual, and compare rebuild part prices to buying the full starter.
I'm going to keep my old one as a spare. If the new one ever dies, I can rebuild the old one, and still be able to ride while I do it. You can't ride the bike with the starter out of it
