    Starter motor options

    Hi guys

    Need your help. Three problems occurred in a matter of days. Bike is a 2016 XRT
    First the horn stopped working. Then the bike wouldn't start and when the mechanic came to pick the bike up i noticed oil on the tiles.... fork seal on one fork is broken.

    Mechanic says my started motor is gone. All problems together i am looking at a very big repair sum.

    I looked at fowlersparts and the starter motor is 400 euros.
    Is there a cheaper option? 

    Any help is much appreciated

    Iíve never used them myself but Iíve heard good reports of Rickís Starter Motors which are very reasonably priced. They are based in the USA and you can find details here :

    Have a read , you might be able to cross reference other triumph models this would widen eBay options.

    +1 on the starter from Rick's. Fair price and prompt delivery. The electrical engineering is a little different but the fit is no fuss. Of course removing all of the parts to get to the starter is a pain in the a$$. I couldn't see paying the Triumph price for a starter that has already proven that it is not durable. It was my experience that Rick's was very customer oriented.

    I will have a look at Ricks starters but the thing that says it need some modification to fit makes me a bit apprehensive

    Do you think this will fit my 2016 XRT?

    You get what you pay for , personally I find Chinese products can vary in quality, worth the gamble thatís up to you , it seems some guys on here vouch for ďRicksĒ , that seems to be middle of the road between cheap Chinese & Denso original

    Ricks supplied a starter for my CBX. The people there are easy to deal with and the starter worked as it was intended.
    The only downside for those not in the US will be the cost for shipping. It might bring the total price close enough to the price of a new stock unit.

    Looks like the original part number. Will probably fail again soon.

    IIRC, it's the starter motor's terminal stud that is a bit larger diameter -- so, the bike's cable end fitting needs it's hole enlarged a bit.
    I think that's all..?

    UPDATE
    Ok guys quick update.
    Bike is at the mechanic. He is sure its a faulty starter motor. However i have my doubts. Problem is the bike is a 2016 model year which is known to have the starter motor issues of earlier years fixed. Apart from that i had the mechanic take the starter motor off the bike. I went and picked it up. I took it to a shop, they opened it and said there are enough brushed to crank the bike up.

    I am baffled. If the ECU would have been damaged would the Tigertool throw codes? I connected the bike and the Tigertool connects as usual and no codes are present. Please see the following video of how the bike behaves
