Oh yes, clean the starter. I am always saying that.
But it is true...!

If you find that starter too worn out to re-install, there are rebuilt OEMs there for a good price. Great vendor, will probably ship the same day.

Question Electric Problem K1100LT

Went out this am turned the key and everything is working. I had installed BMW Gel the other day and left it on trickle over the week end. Could this be caused by low battery charge? Thx Ted

It's possible that the new battery needed a charge. But, just so you know, if the ground path is bad through the starter, everything controlled by the Load Shed relay will be questionable in operation. IOW, if the brushes are bad, the starter will not spin in a happy manner, and the ground to operate the Load Shed relay may be poor or non-existant, resulting in everything controlled by that relay to malfunction as well.
