Starter squeals. Please Help

Recommended Posts

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

Bike is a XR650L. 

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.

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.

Well the Caltric Starter kit for the XR650L was not what I wanted.  I bought it for the replacement bearing for the starter shaft and that bearing did not fit.  The bearing would not fit over the shaft so I cleaned and greased the old one and hope for the best.  Really disappointed.
