Default 2015 e start revisited.

Hi All,

I?ve got a 2015 ec250 and can?t for love nor money get the electric start working, despite trying all sorts. I have pulled the bendix out and it?s clean, works as it should and doesn?t appear to be anything wrong.

When I hit the start button. The bendix flings out engages with the ignition gear but then makes the most awful, hi pitched squeal I?ve heard. It does not turn the motor over.

I?m left thinking it must be one of two things, either one of the gears on the bendix spinning on the bendix shaft or the flywheel spinning on the shaft, if that?s even possible?

I have tried to replicate the former by putting one end of the bendix in a vice and trying to spin the top which I was unable to do.

I should add that the engine starts and runs perfectly off the kicker.

Thanks for the reply. unfortunately, the 2015 bendix is different to the earlier model that can be swapped with the SMU5009 scooter bendix.

Hi! Make sure you have a good battery. I unboxed my bike this winter and it made a simlilar whining noice. Sounded real bad.

New well charged battery and it sprung to life!

Low on power combined with old grease made it not turn the starter quick enough is my guess.

Fojjer is right, the bendix needs a good kick to cam out quickly. Spread the unit open and wash it out with brake cleaner or solvent. Then oil it completely with a light motor oil. Jump your bike battery with a car battery and see how it performs.
