Yamaha VF250 starter replacement

Recommended Posts

I had a starter failure while on a charter a couple days ago, which was a bummer. Fortunately we were able to "tap" the unit and get her running, one time, which was all we needed. I ended up replacing the starter with an  OE Hitachi replacement unit, which I purchased from Arco in Pensacola, FL. They were over $100 less than any other price I could find. FYI. Arco. After bench testing the dead starter, it turned out the solenoid was the culprit. So, if anybody has a dead starter with a good solenoid I would love to have it so I'll have a spare. VF250. Onward.

Good trick on the tapping....I didn't think that still worked with today's heavily electronic engines...

I used to set my  gap on the ol VW 1963 with a matchbook cover and we'd run and push start her anytime we were low on da juice :)

The "good ol days".
