Starter bearing replacement

3 posts in this topic

Anyone successfully replaced the rear bushing/bearing in the starter of a WR450?

Once this bearing goes, your starter makes a horrible screeching, and Yahama wants you to buy a new starter for $200+ rather than replace the bearing for minimal bucks.

There's an extended discussion about this at:

Thanks, Anthony. I tried a couple of shops in my town (central California), but couldn't find anyone to do it because of the odd bearing size. Could you give me more detail about who/where you got yours done? That is, I'd appreciate more specifics about the kind of shop and what they did exactly. Thanks.
