K6 1000 Starter Motor Brushes

Hello everyone!

I'm having trouble getting some starter motor carbon brushes for my motorcycle and thought maybe the fine folk here would be able to give me a hand.
My GSX-R was cranking really weak and not starting, so after eliminating the battery I dismantled the starter motor and found most of the brushes weren't moving freely and actually stuck in position. Springs were oxidized and broken, and one of the brushes had worn at an angle due to the spring being shot.
I'm looking for a UK supplier that can either supply a new brush kit or individual brushes and springs that I can fit and solder.
I've called Suzuki and they don't sell brush kits, and a new generic starter motor from wemoto is 220.

Does anyone have any ideas?
Thank you in advance!

Welcome to GDC Bahn..


Two things.
1st..This isn't the correct section for your '06 1k question, there are bike specific sections.
Click here: https://www.gixxer.com/forums/236-05-06-gsx-r1000/

2nd.. You need to pop into "The Starting Line" and make an Intro post.

Hi Spike52,

Thanks for your reply. I've introduced myself at the Starting Line, and will recreate this topic in that section you linked.
