BMW Airhead Boxer 1970-74 (8 teeth) starter motor

BMW Airhead Boxer pre 09/74 (8 teeth) starter motor

High quality replacement starter motor for all BMW R2v Airhead Boxer made BEFORE September 1974 (8 teeth), offering superior performance, low maintenance and long working life.

Straight fit and direct replacement of the old and heavy Bosch unit which was notorious for poor starting on these early /5 and /6 |Series (70-09/74) as they drew a large amount of amperage and the small battery fitted was often unable to cope thus the reason these bikes were usually fitted with kick start pedal.

Double sealed case keeps its inner mechanism clean for a long working life with minimal maintenance.

Very robust and sturdy outright replacement, 1.2KW of power, offering superb performance and unrivalled value for money.

IMPORTANT: Fits all BMW R2v Airhead Boxer /5 & /6 models made BEFORE 09/74, originally fitted with the early type (8 tooth) Bosch starter.
