Kamikaze 5" Banzai Backing Plate
Designed to optimize the the Rupes LHR15 Mark II, Mark III, and LHR21 Mark II, Mark III Bigfoot polishers
The Kamikaze Banzai 5" backing plate for the Rupes LHR15 Mark 2, LHR15 Mark 3, LHR21 Mark 2, and LHR21 Mark 3 provides the ultimate in performance, precision, balance, and smoothness!
Machined from billet aluminum to meet exact weight requirements, the Banzai backing plate is also black anodized for for a finish to match the level of performance that it provides. The key to the Banzai's unmatched performance is its precision weight, which provides a level of balance and smooth operation that simply cannot be achieved otherwise. And since the design spaces the backing plate away from the LHR15 and LHR21's anti-spin shroud, you also gain speed and free-spin orbits.
Another great feature is that the plate is shorter than the factory unit, which lowers the center of gravity, and gets you closer to the polishing surface.
Given the handmade-nature of the Banzai Backing Plates, there will be some variation in how the hook-and-loop material is placed on each backing plate, but this has no bearing on its performance!
Benefits of the Kamikaze Banzai 5" backing plate:
- More torque
- Smoother operation
- Faster speed
- Better balance
NOTE: This backing plate is designed only for the LHR15 Mark II, LHR15 Mark III, LHR21 Mark II, and LHR21 Mark III, but not the LHR15ES or LHR21ES. While it will fit, the balance will be off, you will not achieve the highest level of performance, and you may cause long-term damage to the machine.
There is NO other mod available for the Rupes machines that come close to this level of precision and performance! Brought to you exclusively in the USA through ESOTERIC!
