TTR STEVE MAY HAVE A USED ONE BEFORE YOU BUY A CHINKY CHONKY ONE FROM EBAY

I recently bought one from Torsten (Ridelimousin) for £20. Worth as ask to see if he has more left.

Beware the Chinese spares, they can fuse together and cause the starter to stick on.

Solenoids are fairly universal though, so one of another bike may work

 And the only way to stop it is to disconnect the battery! 

I had a very unhappy customer where this happened to him in a fuel station. My supplier wouldn't warrantee electrical items so I had to take the hit on a couple.

When I took a faulty one apart and saw what had happened I stopped stocking the copy solenoids and only sold original Yamaha ones - and Steve is doing the same now.
