AFTERMARKET STARTER?

6 posts in this topic

Hi Guys- I tried searching for this answer but didn't have much luck...

The starter in my 04 is shot. The bike is new to me and the starter looks (and smells) like the PO cranked on the starter waaayyy to long. Anyway, my question is about aftermarket starters vs. oem. Does anyone have aftermarket starting motors? Are they decent? I understand you get what you pay for but the aftermarket starters are about 1/3 the price and my wife says I'm on a budget :)

I appreciate any comments you may have!

Check out this old thread,

I havent ordered one but it claims to be a OEM brand Mitsuba from these guys.

Nice find on the Ebay one, do you know if this is a OEM Mitsuba reboxed and sold aftermarket or a chinese copy?

I looked up their website and its even a few bucks cheaper on there

I'm on a budget too!
