You get one... Another doesn't exist unless you want to make it yourself.. Or you're sitting on a stockpile of unobtanium... So you learn not to break things, and how to really fix what you've got...

Unless it's a rare, hard to find starter, it's ebay and PayPal (did I spell those right?) and the bike is back on the road. I'm learning (or trying) to love modern tech and the interwebz.
Eh, I'm lying, I've used emery cloth, a hacksaw blade, and a growler, too.
52 in a few weeks and riding a 34 year old bike. I still have starter issues, grenading 7 starter clutches over the years of ownership.
Here's one of the explosions. Lately, my bike isn't starting before a ride, even with new starter brushes, battery, stator and rectifier, valves within spec. After warm it seems to start most of the time, but the starter clutch protests often.

I'm no expert, but, something doesn't seem quite right.

Ever thought of having one machined from a piece of forged steel? You'll loose teeth before that ever happens again..

And I'd be checking your crank bearings and your choice of oils...
