the answer
I am sorry we do not offer a starter motor for this application.
Here's what folks are using from Rick's:
https://ricksmotorsportelectrics.com/New-Triumph-Starter-Motor-61_704
Fits T800 up to 2014 (eng.# 612713 - on) -- I'm unaware of any physical difference after 2014.
There are a terrible lot of lies going about the world, and the worst of it is that half of them are true.

Could you please quote me a price and if you can ship to Cyprus (Europe) and how much would it cost.

and the answer

Good morning,
I am sorry we do not offer a starter motor for this application.
Thank you,

Okay, they have replied to my email and want to know what year the bike is. So am stil waiting to hear if they have one. I also asked them some details like where it is made etc etc.

Take care Vince

I had sent an e-mail to Rick's asking them for more info on their starter motor. They wanted to know what year my bike is. It is a 2014 XC this is the reply that I got from them.

"Great thanks.
 

Our 61-704 is a new Rick's motorsport Electrics starter motor. We get these from our business supplier in Taiwan.
 

Rick's design is different from OE; The (+) positive post design for this starter is different than the OEM. The original starter uses a 5 mm threaded flag style post and bolt, Rick's uses a 6 mm stud and nut which may make it necessary to open up the terminal at the end of the starter cable with a 1/4 drill bit. Our starter is a Mitsuba style (OE was Nippon Denso) so our starter is slightly more powerful than the stock.
 

We do not take piece back for return, we do offer a one year part replacement warranty."

The price seems to be okay, compared to the OEM.  Now I will have to work out the best thing to do.... recondition my own or buy the Rick's. Decisions decisions...  :187: :187:  :169: :031:

Thanks everyone for the replies and input. Ride safe and have fun..... Vince

Hi all just an update for the Ricks starter motor that I had fitted 18 months ago sadly it has failed,it suffered the usual fate of not starting when hot but with total failure in Less than a week of it playing up just for my own amusement I phoned my local triumph dealer for a price to replace with a genuine triumph starter, I was informed by them it probably wasnt the starter as they never go and that they have only ever changed 1 in 15 years.but they gave me a quote to replace  apparently its a new part number (uprated) I was told, the price quoted would be around 900 fitted.!!!!!!!!!!

Wooow that's bad news. Thanks for the update, brilliant.

I have put a second hand one in and ordered and received spare parts from Germany. My old starter was a mess, full of carbon deposit and the brushes were really worn. I am in the process of rebuilding it. I will then put it back into the bike and keep the secondhand one as a spare. The secondhand one cost 100 euro. I bought it via my Triumph dealer.

I am rebuilding the bike after a two year run down the Americas and am going to Africa. But Covid happened so now I have time to get it all together.

Good luck Telstar hope you can solve your problem cheaper that the 900 quid...

Many thanks and stay safe, stay sane  :300: :031: :031:

Hi tri-vi-la
I have sent my original triumph starter to a company to do a complete refurbishment they have refurbished triumph starters before and told me they dont have enough copper windings and are not up to the job so theres has more copper apparently we shall see hopefully it will last longer than the Ricks starter which only managed 5k miles.

Nice one Telstar

That was my first choice, but unfortunately there are no companies left here that do that type of work. We live in a throwaway society. I was gonna take it to Hungary to get it done there but Covid stopped that.

The windings in my one looked to be okay so am just gonna replace the brush assembly completely and clean it all up and hope that it works :084: :084:

Take care of yourself and heres hoping that it works out okay now.... stay safe stay sane....  :008:   :031:   Vince
