Fitting uprated starter motor

Got a CBR600rr starter motor off a 2004 bike for £10 off ebay. Had to take around 0.25 inches off each of the posts on the mounting bracket and shorten the studs by the same amount. Even though the motor is a larger diameter than the stock item, it is the same length. Took less than an hour to do. It now turns the motor over many more times than the stock motor. Engine still won't start on the button though as I need to change the autodecomp cam.

Will post pics of the mod to the starter if anyone's interested and I've found out how to post them

From what I see on eBay, the 2004 CBR 600 RR have a starter motor which cannot work with the Husaberg, even with the upgraded bracket.

Note that you can always strip a newer starter motor and replace the internals of yours with that of the newer motor.

I remember sending one longer motor to our friend DaleO for his 501, and he did just that operation instead of ordering the new bracket.

Below is another example from eBay. I do not know how this motor would work.

Note that you can search eBay by looking for starter motors for any mid-size displacement Japanese road bikes (500-950), but the CBR have the closest ones to what we're looking for.

You can also look for "Mitsuba", "SM-14", "Mitsuba SM-14", etc...

Buying a used starter motor from eBay is always much cheaper that buying a spanking new one (sorry, Dan).

Hi LeFrog!

What you sticked in subsequently, like that is for me. This is a CB 900 RR starter.
I tested, but in spite of the fact that it's strong, unfortunately little his rev.
Anyway this very big, and it was necessary to rasp it, that fit. This was wasted money.

Look at this:

The bracket does not interest me since I prepare one. Let the starter be good only!

eBay:
I know. Thinkable, that pig in a poke. ..but the money talks, a dog barks!

Oto, are those Hungarian sayings?

They might not all be too powerful, I bought three different ones from eBay one day, just to experiment. One I resold to DaleO, one on my bike and one for spare.

Now, of the three, two were fine, but one kicked like a mule right off the bat(tery), ripped off the cabling and kept turning around its axis for about 3 seconds.

That's the one I decided to use, but I ended up shotting my sprague gear. Now it needs to be replaced, and I will upgrade with the latest assembly.

It did start the 501 cold a few times. Or when it did not, all I had to do was prime then e-start.

With the new bob weight installed, new sprague, beefy motor and Yuasa, I have a feeling I am on the right track.

I really don't mind kick starting, now, but a good solid and trusty e-starter will be a nice thing to have on this bike.

Yes, these Hungarian sayings.

OK, I will try to get the fore-said restarter, I report on the result next.
I hope that it will be good.
I'm interested in the fact that it's starter properly only anyway let it turn the engine.
FYI: I use Mobil1 15W-50 Racing 4T oil, which is very good, but coldly and warmly harder, than an 10W-50 oil, a stronger starter would be needed because of this.

LeFrog, I say thank you for your answers!

Sorry had problems with digital camera. The pics above are representative of the motor I used. Just trim 0.25" from the posts on the motor mounting bracket which unbolts from the engine casing. The mounting bolts for the motor need to be slightly shortened to fit the length of the tapped holes in the bracket.
