Hey! I’m from the states. I’ve been reading these posts concerning the 1000’s starter-motor. I was curious as to why people were replacing their VF1000’s starter with a VF750’s starter, that is until I read TonyOR’s post concerning the starter brushes. I have 8 Honda V4’s. 3 1984 1000 Interceptors (called VF1000F here in the states), 1 1986 VF1000R, 2 VF1100C Magna’s ('84 & '86),1 1987 VFR700R II, and 1 1985 VF500F. 1 of the 1000 Interceptor’s I purchased new in Fall of '84, the rest of the bikes used. 2 of the 1000’s starters have 4-brush starters(I haven’t looked at the 3rd), as do both Magna’s. I have Microfische cards for all of them, and I do recall seeing 2 different starters, by 2 different manufactures listed for the 1000. I don’t remember the differences. As soon as I can locate another card reader, I’ll try and post the pics. BikeBandit only shows a 2-brush starter for the 1000,but a 4-brush for the 750 (and the 1100’s), which I guess is why people were converting to the 750’s starter. When I can, I’ll compare the 1000 & the 1100’s starter-motors, which I would think would be a more “powerful” fix, if there is a difference besides the brush count, like bigger armature/magnets! But then again, if that were the case, it probably wouldn’t fit. .Years ago, early-mid 90’s, I did purchase brush-repair kits for the bigger V4’s, all 4-brush. Although I can’t recall if they were all the same kits. I believe from K & L.
