Starter dragging

Posted this in the Electric forum, didn’t know there was a Battery powered Commander?? Anyway after three or four miles if I stop and shut the motor off then try to re-start the starter drags really bad. But after it cools off it starts just fine. Time for a new starter? Or am I missing something??

I have the same issue although very intermittently. Since it seems to happen only when hot I figure its the starter although I was just riding for 2 weeks in 95+ temps. and I didn't seem to notice it this year.

How old is your battery? Check your main ground connections also.

If you love something, set it free. If it doesn't come back, hunt it down and kill it.

Stator problems

Stator keeps going out. Found radiator fluid in the oil. I know" blown head gasket" but would yhat cause stator to go out? Also sence i changed the stator i noticed a rattle sound from it. Is this normal and just dont gere it because its under the seat?

Figured out the dragging starter. It was a bad ignition switch. Common prob. They get wet easy when washing n riding

Antifreeze in oil can kill the stator .

I'm having the same issue and it was not the starter (I had that replaced). Did replacing the ignition switch solve your problem?
