Thread: Starter GP1200R

    Starter GP1200R

    My starter went out and I had a new one shipped to me. I got the old starter out; however, the Front Assembly (front plate/cap) of the old starter is still stuck to the outside block. The Armature and starter is out (not stuck to flywheel). Its just the front cap thats stuck to the block. There are no bolts holding it in. I've tried to pry it out; however, it wont budge. Any ideas would be huge!!!!! Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum...

    Did you take out the long bolts in the starter assembly or the ones to the cases ?

    Thanks! I took out all four bolts. I thought the 2 long assembly bolts when thru the starter (cap) and into the block. Its hard to work on as its under the engine!! I wish i would have left the starter all in one piece as it would have given me more leverage to work with (old starter in gone now)...

    Without the main case of the starter being on it, you are probably going to have to get 2 screwdrivers in there and pry gently 180* apart to get the nose cone out. They fit in that hole pretty tight.

    I'll give that a shot. Should I spray any LPS inside of it to loosen the nosecone up? it feels like the nosecone is rusted in the block. I'll give the screwdriver a shot and let you know. THx these are all good ideas!

    if you still have the two long screws, thread them back into the cap, the tug on the screws.

    Try to get that whole piece out in one because I changed my starter about 2 months ago and the o-ring part broke off and got stuck inside and that was very difficult to get out.

    This may be a little unconventional but I did the same thing with my starter and used a small puller that had a slide hammer attached to it and that is how I got mine out. I rented the puller frome autozone. It had three prongs and in order to get it in the hole you have to just kind of work it in. Hey it worked....Just my 2 cents...Good Luck
