As far as i can tell, the bendix is what needs to be replaced, but i hesitate handig over the money for a replacement if it's just going to break again. How KTM managed to screw up a bendox design is beyond me. As far as the cs seal, i dunno. Probably should expect to replace this a lot eh?

A worthwhile read for you, I think: http://ktmtalk.com//index.php?showtopic=470619&hl
I wrestled with the 350 watt starter on my friend's bike for a year, yada, yada, yada . . .
IMHO, KTM out of common decency, should have sent everyone with a magic button 300 a shiny new 410w starter. But then they should also send everyone with an orange bike a kick stand worthy of the name.
