2005 Mule 3010 Starter

Recommended Posts

A repair shop said that I need a new starter. They said that it might take 10-15 hours labor to switch it out. They said that the engine has to be pulled. Does this sound right? Thanks

That sounds like an lot of time to spend pulling a motor, that's relatively easy to get to. I'd call a different dealer and ask a couple questions. First I'd ask if the motor has to be pulled to replace the starter. If the answer is no, then you'll know the other place is less than honest. If yes then ask what the book time is on starter replacement.

No matter which place you take it to, let them make the diagnosis. If you take it to the second place, and tell them you think it needs a starter then that's what they'll replace. If that's not actually your problem, then you're out of luck on getting them to then fix your problem without paying extra. If they give a wrong diagnosis then they have some amount of liability to make it right.

      Hi All,
      I am trying to source a replacement starter for my 2010 Hisun 800.  The part number on the starter is MX100709 800.  Is there any other manufacturer's (Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, etc.) starter that would be a suitable replacement?

      A few pictures (so far) of the engine work - eventually I will share wiring info and other details (if anyone is interested?)  should anyone else ever need to swap an engine in one of these. The replacement engine is a Harbor freight $750 special 670cc,  (lawn mower/industrial type lump) with a few minor upgrades. Should have it back together soon, bolted in. The cold weather slows me down!
