    @kaptainkwak Hi will a starter motor refurb kit for a 77 B2 fit a 79 B4,cause it’s knacked and it’s the only one I can find.
    Many thanks

    • Hi Andyfme
      Al models of the 750 twin use the same starter motor so the answer to your question is yes. However if you look on he forum one member (AndyMase) has just had his starter motor refurbed for £60 which even with postage is cheaper than the refurb kits I have seen around.
      Cheers
