All starters require mechanical maintenance, as any other
item on your motorcycle.
Sintered bronze bushings at the drive end and armature
commutator end will loose their lubricosity and do wear. The wear
will eventually create mechanical drag on the on the armature
shaft. As this gradual wear deteriorates the
starter�s performance, the amperage draw
increases. Less amperage is available for the ignition system, thus
potentially causing a �hard
start� condition.
Benefit: Replacing the normal wearing load-bearing surfaces
with new bushings will renew the starter�s
rotational performance.
Carbon brushes and the shunt leads are exposed to 275+ amps
of current. The normal material loss of the brush material needs to
be renewed. Braided copper shunt leads can corrode and deteriorate,
leading to incomplete amperage transfer to armature and field
Benefit: Replacing the carbon brushes and leads will allow
efficient battery amperage utilization.
Brush Springs loose their tension from age and heat soak
