Starter Squeals Like a Pig..

1 post in this topic

I did a realtively long ride this weekend and toward the end of the day everytime I started my bike(2006 - WR450) I noticed a quick squeal just before the engine fired. The noise progressively got worse as the day wore on everytime I would try to start the bike. I also noticed a small squeal when I would kill the engine just before the last piston stroke.

The bike runs fine once started so I'm guessing my starter is going bad ?? How hard/much is it to replace the starter ? Any advise would be much appreciated !

Thank you
