Apparently bad starter motors are historically a common problem on Enfields. When I spoke to my Enfield dealer he said "the oem starters are crap" and he has been replacing them with Honda starters, which I assume are a direct fit, and a lot more reliable. I may go that route if the second one gives me trouble.

I'm guessing  ......... no. That is a NipponDenso starter motor - not a hand wound Chalmers-Delco from the 30's .... It may BE an internal problem with the starter motor - but stuck "between poles"? Voodoo, I say - VOO-DOO .....  ::) But hey - new and free are good ....
Well, all the old Honda's I've worked on, the ones that were laying out in the weather for like 15-20 years, Have had NipponDenso starters in them. Never had to replace one of them. Brushes? yeah. The motors, no. Maybe that's why RE is using them?.. Replacement Honda starter? It's in there  already. ;D

My mechanic works on a lot of bikes with ND starters.  He says hardly any ever go bad and if they do, they do it when the bike is still shiny new with very low miles.

Just to clarify, its not enfield that made the decision to use the honda starters as replacements (you'll get the same part if you get a replacement from RE), it was my local dealer. He got sick of replacing them I guess. :)

 Got Ya ...?   Sooo... It's the specific ND (Honda-ish) starter there putting in the C-5, that your dealer was having an issue with, And he found another ND (Honda-ish) that would fit?.....  I am a bit slow  ::)
