im not sure. its an aftermarket switch.
i bypassed the ignition switch and went straight to starter with a good battery and it still drags.
could it be the cranking gears in the engine miss aligned??

did the bike start before you changed the starter? reason for changing the starter? new honda starter? try power the starter while its not installed to see if the starter spins good. if so, maybe engine issue?

it would only pull start if i was behind some1 pulling me off. But it runs perfect when started

I replaced the starter with a new honda starter because it sounded like it was the starter and was told that it needed a new one, but when i replaced it, the old starter worked fine when i hooked it up while not installed. it spun like it should.

i was thinking maybe the cranking gears just need 2 be realigned so the starter will catch and turn it?

i dont think there is any adjustments for the teeth. i still think you should make sure ur cables are ok and the connections are clean and not all dull looking

Have you checked the "sprag clutch" behind the fltwheel? had some issues with one on a 450 of my buddies.
The one-way starter clutch or "sprag clutch" isn't behind the flywheel on the 450ER, it's on the other side (clutch side) of the engine on the 450ER.
