Have you tried John Browse over in Wrexham, he's worth calling, I've bought 750 turbo parts from him in the past.

Just another thought, if you've got a starter motor that's just not working or worn out, then there's a good chance you could get it refurbished.

You also need to make sure the earth pin is in the correct position/orientation. If I recall correctly, although it looks the same, the NA one does not fit and interferes with the engine casing. :popcorn

If it was me, I'd not be tempted to dismantle the starter motor, as a specialist repair service may be put off if it's been opened up.
There are people who can do this for you but you want someone who has a good reputation. I don't know of anyone specifically but my first choice would be to contact a knowledgeable person from the VJMC, that person would be Phil Alford or Dave Marsden at Z Power. They will probably be able to point you in the right direction. Give them a call on 01942 262864. They're over in Huddersfield.

Looks like the brushes kit is still available part number 210391053. The other electrical part is the armature which I guess can be rewound.

Here is what I mean about different connection points.

I do not know what bikes these are from, but other than the connection point causing issues with the cover, they could all physically fit in the bike. :popcorn :? I have only bought Turbo parts, never knowingly bought non-Turbo unless I know it will fit. Probably arrived in job-lot boxes or similar

Possibly the internals from one that does not fit can be used to fix a Turbo one. I need to check to see if there is a part number on them somewhere. :beer
