    Yrah.. So I just snapped my second starter shaft in a matter of about 8 months or so.. did my tear down and found both were loose and both had one wire where the sauder had broke. So neither were connected. When I sent my heads off and all that the machinest did pretty much what Curtis said, checked em after redoing em and whatnot.. So when I threw the starter back in I left my excite wire disconnected and hit my start button and both clicked so I know I'm good now. But basically u can disconnect ur excite wire on ur starter and check em that way. Also just press down on them and u can feel if they are loose

    Both of my compression releases were not working and I was actually losing compression out of both When I tried to start the bike it would strain to turn it over I feel bike is running much better starting Is a breeze turns over very quickly now

    Yes Doesn't sound like it puts a strain on the starter Start immediately after pushing to start button

    Was at my parents house this weekend checked out my dads new Big Dog and the rear compression release was stuck in the closed position (up) and wouldn't compress down, he said it just happened cause he felt them before. Either way bike has 23k miles.

    Seems like this is a common failure between 20-25k
