So as the title says I need to buy a new starter relay. I called my local Honda dealer today and they are wanting $88 bucks plus tax.

I went to a couple of sites for oem parts I saw recommended on here and they were anywhere from $67.90 - $74.95 plus shipping.

Are the ones on Amazon really that shitty because they range from $10 and up ? There is one that has a 2 year warranty though for $40 dollars, I know you get what you pay for and I really like oem parts but what route would you guys take if you were me?

Mine works when it wants to and cranks on the first pull if needed to go that route but I want my atv fixed but hate to spend $100 dollars at my local dealer after taxes.

So would you splurge or take the $40 one with a 2 year warranty? Im afraid the $10 one will go out quick knowing my luck lol.

Your right about the original one being 15 years old and lasting that long. I looked on Honda Motorcycle Parts, ATV Accessories | OEM Dirt Sport Bike Scooter Cruiser Touring Parts Off Road Motorcycles ATVs Starter Motors and https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/.

Really after shipping and taxes it wouldn't be much more going to the local shop, maybe $5-$10 more and no waiting time. I guess I will get what I pay for in the long run.

I thought it was outrageous at first after checking Amazon but after looking on those sites and seeing they aren't far off from my local dealer I guess they are higher than I was expecting lol.

Well I went ahead and bought oem today, it was higher than I wanted but atleast it will last.
Glad to hear other people would have gone this route also, better than being a cheap ass and have it go bad in a month lol.

thanks
