Hey folks, does anyone know where I could buy brushes for this motor? I've tried to contact Kostov a few times unsuccessfully, and I'd like to have a couple of sets on hand for the MG. Any direction would be appreciated. Thanks!

Good luck with KOSTOV. I just had 2 set made (last week) at Helwig under the following data:

K-11/192 motor brush box size 40 x 12.65 x 33 mm for reference, tamped, shunt wired
H61 carbon,

Quote 387018. Po 070209. Their part # 30-497812-584 01 H61.

Mine were about $400

Well, that's better than nothing. Am I wrong to assume those brushes are the same as mine?

Pricey, though. Was that per set, or for both sets?

I am not sure which motor you have. I gave brush specs for my motor k11-192.

Yes 16 ea.

yes they are pricey but that was cheaper than buying / installing a different motor.

You can send them a set, answer a bunch of questions and they will quote or you can measure yours and see if they are the same. I'm betting if it is 11" they are the same size.

That's what I'm thinking, though I have the 250v version of the K11. I'll measure mine and see if they match up.

I dont want to send the brushes because if something happens to them in transit, my my car is down for the foreseeable future.

I'm willing to pay, its just part of maintenance, especially now that the car is basically done.
