M5 Back Plate Assembly with Bearing

SKU: 0004
  • If you have an original M4 Starter then you need the M4 Legacy plate. The original M4 Main Pulley is a fractionally smaller diameter and thus the pulley centres are marginally different, and the belt would be too slack using an M5 backplate. Please send us an email to support your order if you need one of these.

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.
