starter motor strip problem

hi guys after following the guide to help find the problem why my atv's (trx300fw) electric start would not work, i decided my final part was strip the starter motor on doing so i found one of the magnets come off the metal casing.
is there a glue strong enough to stick it back on or can i buy a replacement casing, my atv is 1988 year.

Your best bet would be to just buy a new starter. I don't think you would ever get that magnet glued back so it wouldn't come loose. You can buy a new starter on Ebay for $60.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
