Anyone have a cheaper alternative to replace the starter brushes for
starter on a 82 920 virago, other than paying over fourty dollars by the time
you pay shipping and handling. Yamaha and bike bandit about the same price.
Any help or advice on this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Allen
Here is what I hope is a happy ending to a sad story,...that starter,
decided to take it apart before I spent $200.00 on a new one. When I opened
it carbon spilled everywhere. After cleaning it all out, I got a good look
at why it didn't work. The metal brushes that generated electricity were
trashed. So I went to Home Depot and got some thick bare solid copper wire.
I chopped off 4 pieces and soldered the wires on the new pieces and put it
all back together and BAM! I have my bike back. Cool isn't it. Question...
Is there any reason why my bike would start to lose power when I reach 6000
rpms...the bike gets all throaty sounding. Just curious.
