1985 K100RS.  Upon disassembly of starter, I can't help but think the bearing could use a good cleaning and re-lubricating, or at least application of additional grease.
What is the best kind of grease to use here?
See pics.

A good high melting point lithium grease should do the job quite nicely. The starter motor isn't under strain for very long and will never get hot enough to worry the grease.
