The 04 starter I bought from ebay came in the mail today. I opened it up, cleaned up the commutator, replaced the brushes, and cleaned up the housing and bearings. I installed it in the bike and it fired right up. I let it idle til it got up to 180 degrees, turned it off, turned it on again and it fired right back up. Then I let it idle up to 220 degrees, turned it off, turned it on and it fired right back up again. Problem solved. No more hot start issues. Oh, and thanks Doug @MotyDesign for my new 8 cell battery. My bike has the strongest starts ever now...love it!
