I have to go here with martg.

Had all sorts of problems with starter, except the free wheeling.

Changed batteries, wirings etc. Nothing helped.

New starter from demo bike - BANG! Now the bike cranks and starts like a hurricane

The problem seems to be that there really are multiple issues with starting, so also there is no one fix. But trying a digferent starter is also a valid option.

I hope you get it solved, a working starter is nice thing to have in a bad spot...

I usually get flamed pretty hard for this, but damn if it doesn’t cure every single electric start issue. I’ll Pre flame answer so if you feel the need to interject your massive electrical knowledge please keep it to yourself. P=IE yup. Got it. Inductive reactance, got it. All That matters for the life of your motor windings is heat. That power dissipated times time will heat the windings up and smoke your windings. BUT only if you hold your thumb down too long. Your bike will start instantly with a 24v starting system.
Here’s my YouTube video of it in action.

Nothing wrong with this unless the engine has issues and you need more than just a quick stab on the button. We used to do the same thing in cold weather for cars with 6V batteries; jump them with 12V. No one else here is probably old enough to remember those.

Do you power only the starter motor with 24V or does 24V go to all devices on the bike?

Thanks everyone for the advice. Turned out to be the bendix cover. I posted the details in the starter fix thread.
