When I rebuilt the starters on my 1980 and 1982 GL1100 motorcycles. The 1980 had 6 washers but the 1982 had 5 washers. I made sure I knew which side they went on, cleaned and rebuilt and had no problems with them from that point on.

BTW, I have the 1982 GL1100 Aspencade up for sale. Spring is coming!

Step 16: Remove the Circlip and push the shaft through the “head”. Mine will not budge...even whacked it a few times with a deadblow hammer. It seems to spin OK...thinking I'll clean it up the best I can and put it back in. I swear the wires on the + brush were insulated when I took it apart....after cleaning it they are bare so I guess the insulation was ready to crumble. One other thing....the spring tension on the neg. brush seems to be way less than the spring tension on the pos. brush...is that normal?
