Makes me wonder if the 821 Monster is affected as well...

Yeah sometimes it would take 3 tries to get it started. I'd hold the button and it would struggle to get turning and just click over and over. I'd have to stop and try multiple times.

Yeah, mines gotten slower and weaker. The pulses are slower and not as pronounced and usually catches on the 3rd. Haven't had click like a dead starter though. The only time it doesn't catch is when I release the button early out of habit. Battery is fine.

Well, crap. Anybody price check a starter? Mines out of warranty.

P.S. Anybody attempt a bump start on their Strada yet? I've certainly ran/pushed and popped sport bikes back in the day.

Thanks man, that's exactly the same symptom I have. Thankfully it's due for a service in the next couple of months. They've been pretty good so far so fingers crossed they'll replace it without quibbling!

I haven't had a click like a dead starter gat, just the symptom that kuks described above - more of a hard start.

I don't think you're gonna like the price of a new one, when a second hand one is retailing at 142...

I asked my tech about this. He said the weak starter is brushes and he can fix that without cracking the cases. The click and no crank is armature and requires splitting the cases and multiple days to allowbthe sealant to dry after replacement.

Weak Starter

Hey Paab - do you have any details on how you can service the brushes without removing the entire starter motor? Thanks

If you've seen kuksul08's writeup on replacing the starter motor, you'd find that the cause of failure isn't from the brushes. It's from the poor epoxy insulation on the coils causing shorts.

That being said, I think you'd have to remove the starter to service the brushes anyways.
