Suspecting all that crap I saw in the starter is not normal, and with the two different wires on the commutator brushes and evidence on non OEM caulking on the starter housing - this job has been done before by a PO. I ride in some incredibly remote areas and often stay overnight away from home on a ride so I am going to replace the starter.
However, given a good nights sleep, I will once again attempt to offer up the cap to the starter since the new one will not arrive until Monday.
Oh - that was not MY Dream machine! What a beauty, it belonged to a fellow at the Distinguished Gentlemans ride here in Tucson.
