The Kamikaze tuned backing plate provides the ultimate in performance, precision, balance, and smoothness!
Machined from billet aluminium to meet exact weight requirements, the backing plate is also black anodized for a finish to match the level of performance that it provides. The key to the Kamikaze backing plate is unmatched performance and 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 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 centre of gravity, and gets you closer to the polishing surface.
Benefits of the Kamikaze backing plate:
- More torque
- Smoother operation
- Faster speed
- Better balance

I purchased the 3" beast backing plate for my Rupes Duetto simply for the extra versatility of being able to run smaller polishing pads.
The Kamikaze backing plate is extremely high quality! I knew it would be good, but it's better than I expected. Yes it costs a bit, but it's the last backing plate you'll ever have to buy. You'll never have to replace it, unlike the also expensive stock ones.
The backing plate spaces the pad out nicely, and makes your Rupes polisher run smooth as butter too! Very impressive! I'm very happy with my purchase, and would recommend the Kamikaze backing plate to anyone with a Rupes polisher.
