Title: starter motor replacement 2011 GSX 650F
Post by: thesmeee on May 12, 2016, 06:40:54 PM
So a few weeks i had an electrical problem on my 650F, turns out the starter is fried and even the local starter motor specialist said i need a new one.

Not to keen on dropping off £500 to Suzuki, are there starters from any other models that will fit or a somewhere reputable in the uk where i could pick up a rebuilt one?

Thanks in advance

Paul

GSX650  GSF650 GSX1250 GSF1250  all have the same startermotor.

Look for it @ special motorsites..  (shops that take wrecked bikes apart)

or e-bay...  search 'starter GSX650" has a lot of hits... even very cheap ones (Australia  and United States)

There's a company that does reconditioned starters, I'll have a look and post a link if I can find it.

@lampie Thnaks for the info found a few for different years across the range but no 2011's, does anyone know if the 2012 starter is the same as the 2011? Educated guess that it would be
