took my starter off of my 86 1100 today. the brushes are no where near specs. I called local shop and they say they cannot get just the brushes and they want $300 for a starter. Do you guys know where I can get these and how much is the going rate on these.
I have gotten brushes from electrical repair shops before, not for my gixxer but for other motors. Try taking your brushes with you so you can match them up to something that is close. Since it's just a block of carbon, you can use a file to change the shape slightly if you need to. Then you can also solder the leads onto your old terminals if needed. Good luck
