I am having problems starting 2001 Vor 503 Sm. I have tried the method with the clicks as described in other forums to no avail. It will start occasionally, and when it does it runs without a hitch. I have tried the starter with a new battery but it doesn't seem to have enough power. The starter is fine if decompressor is pulled in, or the plug is out.Also it has been mentioned that the earlier starters were not that good and the later ones were better. With the bike I got a brand new starter, are the new ones visually identical to the old ones? If so how can I tell if it is one of the uprated ones?
Please help as this is becoming frustating.

Dude, just got mine started after weeks of trying. after checking elecs & fuel etc, I found that the crankshaft seal is weeping into the magneto side & inhibiting my spark, so I need to drain it now & again to ensure it's getting no worse or hasn't failed completely.

Regards,
Robs.
