DRZ - startor motor - wzzzzz
« on: July 19, 2012, 04:39:02 pm »
I've got a new DRZ 400 s - well new to me that is.
2006 model 8000km on the clock.
Something I noticed riding this week-end - maybe just cause its different to what I am used to.
Anyhow, when I start the bike - been riding so the bike is hot. When the motor takes - which it does immediately, the started motor seems to continue wizzing for a second or two after i leave the start button.
Like a car starter when the bendix doesnt realease immediately...
Is this normal? Its not a major sound - just seems that when I let the button go the starter still wizzzzs for a second ot two?
Any comments on this ???

Tks.

Have it checked out. I had a similar sound, ignored it and eventually the 3 bolts connecting the stator coil to the casing came loose >:(. Needless to say I am on the 4th stator now :'(
