starter should be pretty quiet
if you think its loud bring it in
better yet see if they have another z125 you can compare it too
im sure some of us here can make a quick video and we can compare them all if you can make one
Strange how it whines when it is turned off also, any bike techs on here with some input?
Just needed to lube the gear pivots with some moly grease. She sounds good now. Might a regular maintenance thing every time your in the side case it sounds likeGood videos you made. They make it possible for others to make a better guess. I think it sounds like the starter gears & pins are a bit dry and need some lube. They are still briefly spinning after the button is released, that's why you still hear the noise. Just take it apart, lube it all up and recheck it. Have you changed your oil yet? Fresh oil will help make everything inside the engine run smoother and quieter.
Yes that's all they did. Noise has gone away. Didn't cost me a dime and you get a free oil change out of it. You can ride it as is and it won't hurt anything but I'd have it greased up when it comes due for fresh oili have the same problem too, so what did dealer do to fix it? just grease the gear pivots?
probably smart to remember how many starts you do so if it happens again you can complain maybe get it replacedYes that's all they did. Noise has gone away.

Get behind the dealer to make it right. If he or she cannot, then you are well within your rights to demand product substitution.Starter noise has returned 4-5 starts since the dealers "repair". They keep trying to lube things and fix the **** thing, I'm pretty sure it needs a whole NEW starter. Dealers giving me the run around
Does anyone have this noise issue? It's also getting pretty hard to start at least 4-5 pushes of the button for it to start and that's even with the throttle twisted a little
Getting sick of the dealers BS does anyone have a spare starter for sale???
