If you have the Taigene you should definitely fight to have it replaced. Don't know how keen they will be to do it for you though, I have read some dealers are reluctant for some reason. If you do have a Denso already, then the starting problems might be something else.

All this talking about starters makes me want to go and start the bike now and marvel at how easy and quietly it starts now :-)

Confirmed, 104A is made in Thailand and is the starter that was installed on my bike.

My dealer said "cannot replicate the issue". I showed it right to the service manager's face and he said "well it still starts, we can't do anything until it breaks". That's just retarded, and why I will never go back there.

I wouldn't go back to them either.

Who's the dealer? Munroe has been pretty good about warranty issues for me so far.

Motor Cafe

They were cool about it the first time. Then it failed again and they wouldn't do it. The guys at Munroe are cool.

Sorry but I'm a little late to the game here. Can you tell if the starter is a Taigene or Denso from the outside of the bike or does it require disassembly? I am looking at a 2015 Hyperstrada at a local dealer and if this is an issue I will request they change to a Denso starter as part of the sale.

See here: Starter motor discovery - Taigene vs Denso

Clearly identifiable from the outside.
