Brushes for starter motor

Have pulled down the starter on my Husky TE610 and found the brushes are worn out.
Have done a search and found that you can purchase the 'Brush Plate' (online) through many international companies. It's pretty cheap to buy but they all quote around A$70 for priority mail.
Eg. https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-BRUSH-H...oAAOSwFyhaExI-

A mate has told me to try locally through Ashdown Ingram who I have emailled with no responce. Have FB Messeged Denso Australia as well also with no response. I'll be ringing them all on Monday.

Anyway was wondering if there were any other options you could see that might be cost effective. Honestly they are only bloody brushes.....
What would you do?

Go into your local bike shop with the brush plate and have a look through the MCS cattle dog itíll probably be in there. Otherwise just hit up your local auto electrician. Like you said they are only brushes!

I've never worn out a Starter Motor.. I have worn out Drills.
With said Drills: I've replaced Brushes for a temporary gain.

The Brushes have a friction;- that being with your Armature.
The Brushes wear; so does the Armature: Price a new Motor.

I just bought the brushes end cap for a Mitsuba SM-14 off MAS on ebay, an Aussie seller for $47.50 i can't see how you could just replace the brushes like i do with drills etc, looks like you can't just solder them on ?

Yeah a new motor is $510. New brushes will do the trick.

What sort of bike was this for? How did you match it?
My starter is a Denso unit and although i have matched the brush plates with other manufacturers I can't seem to find them local to australia at a good price.
