    New K1200LT Starter

    I have been having problems for awhile on my 2000 LT with 148,000 miles on it cranking slow when it was cold in the morning. I put a new Odyssey battery in it from my other LT and it did not help at all. I bought a new starter from Discount Starter & Alternator and it now cranks the engine over like it has the spark plugs removed when it's cold or hot.

    That's a difference
    Starters do get old and cranky. Usually means more current draw than needed. I have a rather cool Lay-on amp gauge from blue point...now a thing of the past.

    I see Sears jump in selling all stuff, they have that starter listed for $55.38 with free shipping.

    Donít forget to check those heavy starter wire for corrosion too. $150 for a part that fits a BMW, what a deal!

    I'd suggest you put a couple on your shelf just in case

    Incredible. Is BMW working with the health care industry to set these prices?

    My new starter for my R1100 just arrived yesterday from Discount Starter. Looks great. $53.00 with free shipping. If it had been $813 the bike would have been up for sale.
