The new cases look a bit tighter fitting. What is the failure point?

If you have the old starter get used to kick starting your bike.
past afflictions include limey motocars and bikes, R60/2 & a R65ls, and a Citroen.
Now a 2012 rusty GU and a 87 K75s with 200k miles both bought new
dual K&N cones on homemade intake, 40/137.5
Raceway needles
Modtop exhaust

Id say is leaks and the solenoid gets wet and corroded along with the starter motor.

All I know is that I had my starter rebuilt somewhere around 15k KM and the bike has never started so smoothly.
But I can see his point about the bad design.

Honestly, as long as I kick it over properly, mine fires by at least on the second kick in most temperatures, so I don't use the happy button that often.

Are you sure the mechanic gave back a correct starter.

Positive. I even have a spare laying around here somewhere. I may have that one rebuilt as a spare.

The guy is REALLLLLY good and my bike fires right up, super smooth.

Was it rebuilt by a Ural shop or did you go to a rebuild company?
