Starter trouble


A few weeks ago I had the brushes on my starter replaced by a local mech here in Egypt and that part of the starter is working fine. But now I am getting a loud whining/turbine noise. The guys are saying its the bearings and or bushings...

Can anyone confirm?... Are the bearings and or bushings are a simple slip off/on?
Here is a video of what it sounds like.

Video was right after i ran out of fuel (se above, that's why it did not start. Normally I just have to hit the starter for a split second and the bike fires up right away.


Need to figure this out today so if i need to order any replacement parts I can have them shipped this week to a friend who can bring them to Egypt!!!
