Lately I'm having big issues with my 03 WR450 starter. The bike never started as good as my old DR350. 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 ?
