Don't make the mistake of trying to use a 9 tooth starter on an 8 tooth flywheel as you will ruin the teeth on the flywheel

I have heard of people fitting the later 9 tooth flywheel to the earlier bikes, they use sleeves on the flywheel bolt holes, so that they can use the original sized flywheel bolts. By the account I heard this worked well.

It's really good that we can get new starters for 42 year old bikes!
