Default Starter (Motor) Question

Hi Guys,

I "fried" my starter, nothing happens when power is applied to it and there is a burnt smell when I opened it up, the armature must have gone.

What is the conventional wisdom on replacement? OEM, or is there an aftermarket brand that's better? Do I understand correctly that the KTM starters are a direct replacement?



PS - A lot of starter discussion as of late I know, but I've searched and read most (if not all) of it and must have missed where starter motor replacement was discussed!

It might just need brushes mate, armatures are pretty tough on them. I believe Ktm use the same starter but do not quote me! 😜
