    stronger starter motor

    hi,

    since my upgrade to Yuminashi 164cc kit, where cam has no decompression feature, the starter of my grom mostly had a hard time and sometimes needed a second click on the starter button.
    thats gone now, i have installed a wemoto high performace starter and my MSX starts at the first press of the button now, without any hesitations.
    have it from ebay - Honda MSX 125 Grom 2013-2014 Starter Motor High Performance | eBay
    but wemoto also has a webshop - The UK?s biggest choice of motorcycle parts for Japanese and European machines.
    YYZGROM and gromhawk like this.
    kind Regards,

    Hum good thing to keep in mind if my starter goes again. Did you upgrade the battery as that will turn the motor over easier?

    no batterie upgrade and install went well. you have to remove side fairing to access starter, remove + cable and the 2 mountingscrews of the starter, where on the back one also groundcable is attached.
    then, from the left side of the bike with a rubber mallet with light targeted hits on the starter, to push it out.
    grease the axle of the new one and hammer it with the mallet into its position. be carefull and look that toothwork fits.
    done.
    kind Regards,

    Can't you just take apart your stock starter and rewind it for better starting.

    here is a good link on starter theory, from old motorcycles to now days

    yes, you can do this if you are knowledgeable, i prefer to buy

    the starter is sealed and not easy to dismantle. i think its a disposable product and not really built to be repaired

    Bump this up. I've been thinking about getting a upgraded starter as it seems like it doesn't crank fast enough. How's the starter working out?

    i don't think any venders offer a starter yet though.
