Took my grandaughter to school,as always, and when leaving, the bike wouldn't start. Th cellinoid was clicking but no starter. Finally it started and I got home. I jumped across the cellenoid with needlenose pliers and nothing from the starter. pulled the starter, to check the brushes, and they were gone. The springs were all the way to the bottom. The Wee has 73000 miles and I hadn't seen this before, on this forum. Armature checked out good so I ordered the brush assembly and O rings. $61.00. Just wanted to pass this on for anyone else, who might experience this.
Have a great day
