John - Check you home email account, or whichever one you used to post your bike on Craigslist. I found you one, and forwarded the information to you there.

I purchased a used starter from the internet. I sent out a parts request to a salvage site and got reply's from over 30 different salvage yards with prices and guarantees. Took a $95 deal. received it 3 days later and installed it. The bike came to life with all of its glory. Lessons learned are that one must also plan on an oil change when replacing the starter. 4 quarts of oil will do a number on the garage floor.
thanks for all of your info. Good to know there is such a great and diverse group of riders out there on this network.

comming from someone who has rewound their own stator, you can do your starter too... just keep a few things in check.
pay attention to how the 'poles' of the armature are wound and connected. measure the gauge of the wire you have (you can use a set of gagued wire strippers to figure this out) Make sure the wire you buy is magnet wire, i suggest a polyester enameled one. and be very neat and slow. parts shouldnt cost you more then 30 bucks so long as the armature is ok...

If the post is loose, you will probably have to disassemble the starter and tighten it up from the inside. I am guessing here without having looked in the book but if it's loose, it won't allow a good electrical connection and that will cause your starter problems. You should check the maintenance manual first before tearing it all apart but it seems like a logical conclusion.
If tearing it apart is the way to fix it, make sure you inspect all the other parts while it's apart. Replace any that look or test questionable.

|Crobins365||Check eBay - there are starter rebuild kits available if your armature is still ok. I think they're around $70.|
