I am looking at two options for replacing my starter motor. Capital Cycle has a $165 motor, which has no specs or manufacturer stated on their website and Max BMW offers a Nippondenso Japanese-made unit, which has impressive specs including a much lower current draw than the original Bosch unit at half the weight, but at a hefty $345 price tag. Can anyone help with a recommendation here?
