it's a tight fit but just be patient and it will come.

I am just curious what you found in your friends starter.
I am sure the listening (lol) public might be curious as well.
How many miles are on the bike? Is the bike used for short trips (ie, a bunch of starter usage)
How were the brushes? amount of carbon dust? condition of the grease in the gears?

Again, just curious Smile

Thanks for asking, the bike has 160,000 kms (100,000 miles)
He bought the bike a couple years ago but hasn't ridden it much so I've been fixing it up for him and he's riding again this year.
There was a lot of carbon dust in the starter and it made a screaming noise after starting the bike, worn out bushing.
He bought a starter rebuild kit which includes bearings new bushings and brushes, (about $25)
Rebuilt the starter and put it back in the bike and it works perfectly.
