    After a year of my xc250 starter not working I decided to take a look at what was wrong. Long story short, water and dirt got in there and bad things happened. Now I need a starter. Anyone replace theirs yet? I believe there is a up grade to more powerful one now. I'm sure the dealer can get one just looking for a cheaper solution. Oh and its a 2011.

    Do you know if it was replaced with the updated 410w starter?

    I am using the Arrowhead 410watt starter and it is holding up great. Dealer cost is about $100 on this starter.

    I could not stomach the cost of a lithium battery.. went with a 5series (stock is a 4series) sealed lead acid for $56 and it works a charm... Li was well over 250!!! over the life of the bike I am sure I would not a payoff of going lithium.

    I also have the updated starter
