Talking I Bought A GREAT Starter Rebuild Kit!

This EBayer put a new after-market starter rebuild kit in my hands faster and cheaper than ANYONE locally! ($21 with standard shipping, which arrived in MI from CA in 2 days!)

Check out their store - Crank N Charge

* YUASA AGM Battery - YTX14AHL-BS
* Cleaned Master Cylinder, Flushed Front Brakes W/Extra-Dry DOT4
* Ignition Pick-Up Coil Mod (With Quick-Connect In-Line Terminals)

* Muzzy's Aluminum Radiator Fan Blade
* Replacement Drive Shaft - Lubed Splines & Final Drive
* New Clutch Handle (Straightened Old, Kept As Spare)

It looks like all the starter rebuild kits being sold online are imported from China and use the part number SMU9101. I found the exact same kit that I bought a couple of weeks ago for $24.50 available here for $13.00 shipped:
STARTER KIT KAWASAKI M/C KZ1000 KZ1100 ZG1000 CONCOURS ZL600 ZL1000 ELIMINATOR - Rakuten.com

Hope that helps someone.

I notice they even have new complete starters for 1/4 the cost of one from Kawasaki. Has to be Chinese.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.

Did you actually read my post before replying to it? Of course it's Chinese. You're welcome to buy the brushes by themselves for $60 or so from Kawasaki, but the Chinese copies are actually quite good based on what came in my rebuild kit, and you get a lot more than the brushes for 20% of the cost..
