Pissed Cagiva w16 600cc - plz help to start the beast

owned the cagiva w16 for afew years now, always had problems starting it using the electric start. there is no decompression set up or kickstart on the 1996 model.
things i have done.
-replaced the starter sprag clutch behind the stator(which i used a KTM lc4 starter roller clutch), also replaced stator/magneto and windings/generator
-replaced the bushes in the starter motor
-adjusted the valve clearances as specified in the manual
-replaced the battery and battery leads from batt to the start relay and to the starter motor

as far as i know there is no dealer who can help me find a new starter motor in Adelaide, South Australia
it will turn over but really slowly as the compression is high, possibly the starter is just to worn out

bike starts first pop on a roll start, doesnt skip a beat and will idle all day. bike has only done 5000km. looks great but i cant sell it on its looks and hills are limited.
please help??? any info would be awsome

Hi mate, just wondering if you sorted your issue. I have exactly the same problem with my Cagiva River. I'm thinking about getting a decompression valve installed. You can buy starters overseas, they're not cheap.
