Default Dual mass flywheel?

What are the necessary changes in starter motor of diesel engine if we plan to change the ordinary flywheel with a dual mass flywheel?
I need opinion with a fair reason...

Firstly, why would you be using a dual mass flywheel, instead of a single mass? A single mass is MUCH more reliable than a dual mass flywheel.

reliability is not the criteria. Criteria is to develop technology. We can increase FOS of the DMF material wise and design wise as well. I am not sure about working of starter for the same.

guys, I am not concerned for the cost or anything...
And you people are not getting my question and approach, I am asking that what are the necessary changes to be made in starter motor if we replace SMF with DMF or CDMF...

As far as my knowledge goes, you don't need to change anything in starter motor. There is one thing though, the starter motor groves needs to be serviced often of residue.

I will never recommend anyone to change to DMF on their daily drive. as its expensive and more prone to failure as it has extra moving parts. So the hassle is more than the advantage it provides.
