I believe there's a post on this (somewhere on the forum -- but I can't find it) -- where the poster said he replaced his failed starter motor with Rick's unit and the only size difference issue was a bigger terminal for fitting the battery lead (needed a bigger hole in the end of the battery lead).

Hi AvgBear it was me that wrote the post regarding the Ricks starter motor it is a direct replacement you just need to drill out the eyelet on the cable that attaches to the starter motor with a 1/4 inch drill as the connecting bolt is a little thicker on the Ricks starter had mine fitted for 5 months now has been perfect no issues at all and less than half the cost of a denso /triumph starter.

Looks like I have a hot starting issue  :023:

Just back form a day out to France and on two occasions I stopped the bike and immediately went to fire it back up, first time nothing when I hit the button second time it only just turned over, so guessing it's the same problems as has been mentioned here - 2012 roadie with 31,00 miles.

The bike seems to start no problem if it's been left a minute or two and turns over as expected.

Is the problem likely to get any worse  :261:

Doesn't help if you stall it at a set of lights and need to start it quickly, but I don't want to replace it if it's going to fire up when starting normally  :187:

Might be two separate issues?
One, the ECM may need to check through its start-up checklist and get an electronic 'handshake' from all sensors after a (inconvenient) shut-down? Immediately pressing the start button may, then, get no result.
Two, "only just turned over" may indicate a starter motor issue -- or, a low voltage issue.
