85 ytm 225 won\'t start!

I have a 85 yamaha 225 dx. The bike is in like new condition. My problem is that it will start fine and runs great when you use the pull start to start the bike. It will not start when I use the electric start. The engine turns over and the spark is fat and blue at the plug. The carb. was just recently rebuilt so thats not the problem. I checked the CDI by pulling a used one off a spare bike and that made no difference. I should mention that when pull starting the bike it starts on the first pull almost every time. Also I need pictures of any other ytm 225 for decal reference. Please help. I don't won't to have to take this thing to the dealer at $65.00/hour.

Re: 85 ytm 225 won\'t start!

the starters on the 225,200,250 seem to have problems turning over the engine fast enough when they are worn.I've had problems with the same starter.the rebuilt starters out there could give you the same problem.It took 3 rebuilt starter to find one that would work.I install new ones only
