Best starter for a ss 124.

I can have my old one rebuilt or just buy a new one done with upgrades. What one's would you suggest for this? Or is it just a waste just have my old one gone thrue? Thanks Guys

I just did the same thing. I had a 2.0 go bad new starter clutch 89$ (all balls)
Brand new starter (thundervolt) 1.75 push button 120$ to my door with 1 yr warranty. So I just got the starter. The other question is why did yr starter go bad in the first place? are you running good high quality battery cables? or at least 2 negatives (good ground) starter relay... timing on spot? While yr in there replacing the starter look at the starter gear closely and the gear on the clutch pack. Make sure you havnt lost any "teeth" .

A regular All Balls 1.4kw will work just fine...you have compression releases, just use them and you'll be ok.

thanks guys. Yes Miine has the elct compression releases.Not sure why the starter failed just would not kick in.The end of the gear was a little fried. I bought the bike 6 years ago and it has allways seem to have had a problum.I now have the time to deal with it and figure it out. so part of me would like to send the starter out to have a expert look at it so i know what the heck went wrong. my main guess is a bad slionoid. whats a great place to buy a starter?

In your post on bike not starting u ran a jumper wire from the battery to the solenoid terminal and whala the starter cranked over. Right?
Now you have a starter with the gear a bit chewed up. Right?
You can install a new starter BUT you have not corrected the problem that originally caused starter problems which is low voltage going from your starter button to the starter solenoid.
Just hate to see u install a new starter and have problems with it as well.

You could install the starter button anywhere u like. I have seen some installed just under the left hand side of the seat so you can just reach down and hit the button but still operate the throttle ...
Remember depending on how you hook it up you will be bypassing the safety systems such as the neutral gear selector switch and/ or the ignition key switch so so carefully look into it before u dive in..
There are also starters with a manual button right on the starter solenoid but they can be a pain if that is the only way to start it due to location
Glad I could be of some help.
Sorry I don't rebuild starters or generally take on outside work I'm just way to busy ....still trying to finish my own build..but glad fo give advice where I can.

I put an ultima thunder fire 2.4kw on my 127 probably a bit overkill but that's just me..I would think a 1.75kw or 2.0kw would be adequate and with compression releases some guys still run a 1.4kw stock starter..
Remember if u upgrade to a larger starter u will want to check for any fittment issues the bigger starters are bigger in phisical size

I like the sound of them did you get yours with the push button opt?Thanks for the info again. The guy at scooters was going to try and figure what size i had. i sent him some picks he said alot of what your saying. alot of guys like the all balls? is there a main reson the ultima is better? It looks like ultima has more choices?

Never used the all balls starter so don't know much about them..I went with ultima because they seem to be the best deal at the time..so far works great. And yea I got it with the push button just in case I ever needed it.
