The starter is prone to vibration breaking the electrical leads going to the bushings.  The design IMO is poorly engineered as the lead is soldered at a right angle to the way the bushing moves and that stresses the solder connection.  Its a fairly simple fix – starter rebuild kit is cost effective and it takes about 30 minutes.  Most guys racing will carry a back-up starter.
