Question
Hello,

Where can I get a starter motor for a 1984 Suzuki Tempter 650?

I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Hi Kyrk,

Being a mechanic I can help with repairing things but parts
are not really my department. If it was my bike I would
look into rebuild kits like this:
http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Starter-KIT-Suzuki-Motorcycle-GR650-Tempter-GR-650-83-/29

If the starter is beyond rebuilding then cycle salvage yards and ebay might be the only
place one would show up for a bike that age.

Many of the japan built bikes use a similar starter type MITSUBA SM-8227 // SUZUKI 31100-15510
A search for the suzuki part number brings up a number of places with a listing:
http://www.motosport.com/cruiser/oem-parts/SUZUKI/1983/GR650/STARTING-MOTOR/MOTO

The new starters are $400-$600 so looking for a used one in salvage or rebuilding the old one might be best.

Sorry I have little parts info just mechanical info mainly.
