    760 Starter Replacement Trouble

    I have a 760 from a waveraider in my blaster, and it randomly wouldn't start while riding a bit ago. Finally got some time to diagnose it since all I heard was a click. The starter had 12 volts and was not moving at all. I tried jumping the starter and nothing so I decided to replace it. Ordered one http://www.ebay.com/itm/FITS-YAMAHA-...72.m2749.l2649

    I have the protec exhaust on and for the life of me can't get to two bolts on it so I replaced the starter with it on. Anyway I got the new starter on and tightened down and it's not in all the way from what I can tell. It has power now but just spins without engaging so I assume it needs to go in that little bit more but the bolts are tight. I've replcead a few starters before so not sure what the problem is. Hopefully I'm doing something dumb just seeing if you guys have any insight.

    The only mistake you made was buying a $35 starter & expecting it to work.

    Buy a real starter (oem) if you dont wanna do it every time you ride.

    It's in all the way. Get a better starter (OEM). If it's just spinning, you may need a new reduction gear too.

    Speed is very expensive. How fast do you want to spend?
