Question R100 starter: does the Enduralast last?

The magnets in my '94 R100 GS's original Valeo starter motor came unglued and scored the armature. It needs either a new starter motor or entire starter assembly. The Enduralast with 1 year warranty is a bit over 1/2 the cost of the Valeo with a 2 year warranty. Thoughts?

Purchased a new housing with magnets from http://www.euromotorelectrics.com in Colorado. Excellent service. Ordered on a Monday, received on Friday on the East Coast. The Valeo starter's a bit of a pain to take out. I had to modify a 13mm socket due to interference with the rear housing flange to one of the two starter mounting bolts, and you need a star driver to disassemble it.

i think in today's life the best thing is to go and search on net rather than moving to different stores.
