The M4 Legacy Plate and Motor will allow you to keep your M4 Main Pulley assembly (do make sure that the sprag clutch is fully functional) while replacing the Backplate assembly (which includes a New 1200 Watt Motor.Gearbox/Drive Pulley) Note: You will need to purchase a new Plastic Cover as the original M4 Cover won't fit the new Backplates.


If your backplate is not cracked, you should consider our repair service which includes replacement of the phosphor bronze bush with a ball bearing. We can also replace the Brush Pack - Inquire.

    M5 Starters made individually to fit your installation!

    YOU choose the orientation of your starter - Download a full size backplate template from FILESHARE, cut it out and orientate it for your installation. Make a mark at 12.00 O'Clock viewing it from the magneto end. Then imagine a centre line through the plate lengthwise and email us the 'time' (12 o'clock position being the minute hand, centre line being the hour hand) Don't forget to tell us if the fit is Carburettor side or Exhaust side! Upon receipt of order your backplate will be pre-drilled to your specification.
