[i]The 800 SL is the same as the 750
The 800SM has a longer splined bit on the end (ie commutator) that fits into the torque limiter, and the casing is enlarged to accommodate it.
Why not use a 750 s/motor?
Just to scare you here are some prices
Starter motor £503.19
Torque limiter £152.03
Magneto cover £148.44

ps I have a spare s/motor that I may reluctantly part with if I have to.

I recently acquired a basket case 1988 DR750 and all its problems. Was told the bike would not start, not because the starter motor lost 2 off its magnets but the pickup coil was damaged. So I bought a new coil and harness as the wires were baked brittle in the alternator case. Pity they need to put oil there. Getting back to the starter motor seems like they are not available anymore. Trying to get new magnets is not so easy either. Don’t get replies from people who make them in China. Has anyone out there tried to stick in new magnets?

As I change my engines to the Tq limiter type I have several 750 starters on stock. Dont ask a lot of money for it but postage can be expensive. PM for more details.

I`ve rebuilt several s/motors and it`s hellishly expensive using original Suzuki parts.
However, I would rather pay top money to Suzuki than buy shite from China that is guaranteed to fail.
In this case I would take up the mans offer and get a s/hand one.
btw a new starter has now increased in price to £537.82 :o
