That's my starter motor, which doesn't appear to be in a healthy condition.
What I would like to know is, can I avoid spending over $500 on a new one in any reasonable way? Getting a used one on ebay or any other online shopping place is not an option, as I need it fixed in one week max and getting an used item is slow and risky. Delivery is slow to Romania and I get the risk of getting a defective one, or one that will break down soon.
Can it be rebuilt with commonly available components?
Can I adapt another starter from a different motorcycle model? This particular model is known to break down easily, so it would be great to adapt a more reliable model if it's possible.
- Motorcycle: Triumph Tiger 800 from 2011
- Starter: Denso 428000-5540
