The starter adapter is a direct variable cost of flying that wears down with usage, just like mags, tires and brakes. Your starter will only deliver a limited number of starts until it begins to show signs of failing.  In a shared ownership, you should allocate a reasonable cost in the hourly rate for starter overhaul or replacement.
