Replaced stock starter motor by 1.4 kWt chinese no-name one. It's wounderful! It must be the first thing to do after buying 2.3 Rocket!

Morning masturbation trying to start engine is over now! Maybe, living in England, you have a special servant to start you Rocket every morning, who wakes up half an hour earlier then you))) But I can't allow this to me and prefer to start it by myself. Now it takes 2 seconds when it's 6-10 degrees celcium.

Great thanks to this forum and to those wounderful people who created this topeak.

It is so easy I did not even think of pictures. You do not even have to pull the starter off the engine. Disconnect the battery first, Then the wire on the starter motor not the battery lead but the motor lead. Then the two bolts on the motor and slide the new motor in. Two bolts on and then the motor lead. then the battery terminals and go ride :)

Are you familiar with the amperage rate of the stock one and the 17610 ?

Hi everybody, thank you for all suggestions in this thread. I did the complete job, solenoid repair kit and compatible starter motor (1,4 kw). I used the part with the pinion and armature in my starter motor. It was already good with only the solenoid repair kit but with the new motor is perfect.
I post below the links for the repair kit and the starter motor i used if someone can be interested. ;)

Okay, I just installed the 17774NP (motor only) on Brahma and he started right up. Amazed? I am.

First, I took out the long screws on the OEM motor like @Claviger stated from the starter assembly. I had to use a box end wrench as the open end wrench from Triumph was starting to strip the heads.

Then I disconnected this 12mm nut which secures the power cable to the motor.

Taking the OEM motor off was tougher than I thought as the exhaust brace was in the way. But, as the motor cover came apart, not a problem any more. I slipped the outer cover off by inserting a straight slot and twisting it to open the gap.

Here is the empty slot. Notice the corrosion on the power stud. Clean that off and apply some dielectric grease.

The new motor went on quite easy though.

I tightened the 12mm nut, recovered with the rubber cover and hit the starter button, all done.

Because I am slow, it took me about 25 minutes.
Awesome.. thanks very much

I just ordered mine...
Hey Brother, someone said to upgrade the cables to the starter also and they were available on Amazon. Is there a little more description for me to find what I need here.

We actually had a member in the land down under make several sets for us a few months ago. Prior to that, I simply order a second negative cable from the Triumph dealer and installed it; thus I had two negative cables which did indeed help with cold morning starts.

MY STARTER JOURNEY.
Have had the click click for four years. Slow cranking on cold mornings and battery going dead after a minute of cranking. Even with a new battery.
Battery died last Sunday. How I got home I don't know how. Sounding like "Five O'Clock Charlie" from MASH.

1st. The starter for 1999 Toyota Salora will work. BUT, the solenoid plunger rod has to be cut. About a 1 1/4 inch or so. And reuse oem spring due to size. Also the solenoid wire plug needs to be pulled out and rotated. I was able to rotate it about 70 deg. It it facing towards the front but not all the way. Be careful not to break the wire inside solenoid. Other then that it bolted right up to the old nose of the old starter. I also installed a new AGM battery from O'reilly's. Made new battery cables using 4 ga. cables. Motor has never in the 12 years that I have owned turned over this fast. Almost like two cylinders are missing the plugs. Fired right up. Should have done this years ago.
