So I'm buying a bike from a buddy who says that the previous owner did the '04 starter upgrade. How can I verify this? Also, I'm a bit of a getto dog. What items (chain guide, chain sliders, bearings) are compatible with other bikes for the purpose of ebay searching. Lastly, the starter is shot. The pinion is badly worn and the brushes are 99% gone. I think I'm going to buy one from servicehonda.com for $180. Anyone know of a better source? Is the a cheaper solution to a new starter form a dealer? Thanks!
