Starter squeals. Please Help

Hi guys, trucked bike out to some fun trails.  Bike wouldn't start, just tuened over for half a second then squealed. 

 

Some guys push started me, I warmed it up with  some riding in the parkng lot, then it would start right away before the squealing had a chance to start.  Any of you know what this may be and what the remedy may be?

 

Did get in a fun ride, still have to get the weeds out from around the axels. 

 

Thanks

Oh that explains it, because I just usually grunt, when kicking! :smirk:

If I had to kick it I may have squealed.  But it is the L with ectric start.  Squealing is a bad sign I am sure. 

Get a starter rebuild kit off ebay..the bushings are gone in the starter motor..or get a used starter..

Thanks for the info.  I will look for options.  I had a problem a while back where I went to start and nothing happened, may have been the bushings not allowing it to turn. 

 

Thanks again BrianHare, this forum is fantastic. 

 

BTW I was trying to find a sharkfin and see you have the scotts sharkfin on your signature line.  The part store guy had no ideas when I asked him.
