Replacing starter button on a VTR250.

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Walter Fontaine, Jun 8, 2014.

  1. I'm about as greenhorn as a rider can get.

    The starter button on my right hand controls is cracked and needs replacing, not an urgent problem but one I would aesthetically enjoy if it were fixed.

    What are my options?
    Do i have to source the whole right hand control... thing.
    Go through a mechanic?
    Is it possible to google/ebay that tiny piece of plastic, that is the starter button on its own, and fix it myself?

    Thank you, I hope my naivety wont create anxiety in the more able of netriders members.
  2. Generally you can't buy individual parts that small they would come as assemblies. You may be able to disassemble the starter button and glue it back together. Using a plastics rated glue.
