Rebuild Vulcan 1500N starter motor?

Anyone have any idea where to get the comutator end bearing for a 2005 1500n starter motor?
its a Koyo 609 z bearing but has an odd bore size, I'm reading it as 8.8mm?

the more I look at this, the more confused I am.
I am thinking I got a sucky bearing. I am also assuming part of this, is the stupid Chinese micrometer

Shaft OD - 9mm

old bearing ID - 8.83mm - press fit on the shaft (Koyo)
new bearing ID -8.86mm - slides up and down the shaft (SFK)

so I dug out my telescoping gauges and tried again:
old bearing ID - 8.98mm
new bearing ID - 9.02mm

so yea never mind, it looks like I need to order i better class of bearing.
it really helps when you are measuring everything with the same micrometer

Thanks for your assistance!
