Try eBay. Some bike salvage companies sell on there. I've bought parts for my '03 BMW from some of them and had good success. A quick search turns up a couple different starters for your bike.Thank you for that! I really appreciate your comment. Now I've changed the fuse box which was a total mess and also the solenoid. I got the green light and only ticking out of the solenoid ? So, I took the starter off and could hardly turn it by hand so I took it apart and it was a mess! Part of the copper was in the case broken off and the brushes worn to a nub. No wonder it wouldn't start! Now I've been on line to find a starter and can't find one that I can afford. My yamaha xj650 maxim sits in the garage again so I"m in a big search for the starter. It's a 1982 so pretty old and called all the dealers around here but no luck. I have no more ideas where to look so I might have to go to a different city to find a shop. Biker friend of mine is looking also. Got any ideas for me where to look? I sure need some help here. Thanks again.
