Second and worse problem it fouled plugs. 7 plugs in 8 hours. It fouled the plugs when idling, as well as when I blipped the throttle. Tried hotter plugs, it fouled them too. It was a nightmare... but all good now.

Default My Starter is working!

So my starter worked intermittently, most of the time a horrible clunk and no action. When the bike was hot it would generally start with the second stab of the button. (Upgraded battery, ECU remap, added thicker cables and a negative.) That was until last weekend when nothing would happen, so I cleaned the bike and pulled the ignition cover.
What I found was the bearing for the electric start gear was bad. So bad it is just about impossible to turn, put some heat on it and it would spin so-so. So my dealer grabbed an ignition cover off a trade in and presto working starter!

So if you have a starter that is not working I would check this out.

So similar problem that I had with my -18 300 GP.

And in my case it was the starter. Also my starter never quite worked and got worse start by start. And after 5 hours it just gave up.

The old starter (in this video I keep the starter "pinned" for seconds and you can hear the growling):

The new starter (or actually a start of a demo bike from importer):

So it just exploded running.

And yes, before the new starter I bought two new batteries and got one from GG (the one they recommend), had updated CDI from the beginning, had the wires done, and nothing made any difference.

So my money is on the starter motor...

Hi guys, just found where my problem was, seized shaft on the mechanism of the starter, if you go to the exploded manual, on the page where it shows the parts for the starter, the parts number 17 and 16 had given up.

The number 17 turns whit the stater motor but the 16 does not, i need to replace those but its a pain to take them out, tried last night with no success, i managed to take out the first bearing but this one is putting a fight.
