Question about kawasaki ZX-9R Motorcycles
Tap on the starter gently with a plastic hammer while holding the starter button. If the starter works now you need starter brushes. The brushes are about the only replacement part available on Japanese motorcycle starters. Unbolt the power cable to the starter, take off the two bolts holding the starter to the case, and pull the starter out of the motor. Now you can take off the end cap to inspect the brushes. Installation is reverse order. bench test the starter before reinstalling. If the spline of the starter does not mesh with the spline hole of the gear in the motor, rotate the starter enough so the splines line up or power the motor to move the position of the spline and try again. If you have an Ohm meter you can easily test the armature. You should have continuity between every other contact. But no continuity between adjacent contacts. If there is anything other than brushes wrong with the starter you will have to replace the assembly.
