Seen a couple of bikes come in with the aftermarket starters guts ripped apart, first they thought it might have been the starter clutch assembly, then a starter was put on, that was brought in by the customer, even when they turned over they sounded weird.

Each one ended up being the same, starter wore out faster then the OEM one.

Can you post a video of what it sounds like? Does it sound weird when you stop the bike or when you start it? Could be the clutch. Starters are fairly basic. Maybe the brushes need replacing.

If Noemtz can get you a rebuilt one with a core trade in; that's the way I'd go.

If not Noe then maybe Rylan at The Vic Shop or Maybe KevinX.

Doesn't make any weird sounds, not whining, sounds normal but intermittent starting. Acts like bad battery, but just had it in the shop and everything checked out fine, and this was their recommendation.

Maybe just the solenoid? Mine started acting weird and I replaced it for $12 bucks off eBay. Has been good ever since.

If by solenoid you mean the "breaker" just behind the battery box, yea, already replaced it.

Also checked for loose wires, battery terminals, grounding, and starter switch. Tech searched too.

Been going on now for about 9 months.

Yes, it is down behind the battery. Always heard it referred to as the "starter solenoid", but that is what I was talking about. Mine manifested by no response when I pushed the starter switch, then it would start. Sometimes had to push twice or rock the switch. I was first concerned that it was the starter, but was told to check that first. As I said, it solved my issue. Good luck tracking down your little gremlin.

I'm no mechanic. But about a year ago my 2011 acted like it didn't have enough cranking amps or a bad connection sometimes (original, factory battery). I also checked ALL of those things. I finally replaced the battery even though Advanced Auto said it checked out OK. My problem went away.

Eventually I took the old one over to Noe at NoeMtz when he got his new battery tester. It was holding 12v but not nearly enough cranking amps to do the job.

People think I am too patronizing. (That means I treat them as if they're stupid.)

Based on what little I read for symptoms, before jumping in and replacing starter or battery. Check a few things.

1.Run full diagnostic on battery, i.e. Load test, CCA and other. A good battery tester will do all.
2.Check for loose connection on starter itself. Have found a bunch loose that show same symptoms
3.Also consider switch/start button having some corrosion in it or going bad.

As for aftermarket starters, installed them and have not had issues thus far.
