Replacement Starter Solenoid for 1973 Harley Davidson/Aermacchi SS350 Srint
My Sprint just quit running in the middle of a ride last week. I pulled over, checked that the petcock was on, and hit the starter a couple time. The second time I hit the starter button the starter would not stop running. I disconnected the battery to stop the starter motor. I took the bike back to my shop and identified a bad solenoid. I found a replacement made for a Suzuki on Ebay for $17 with free shipping. It bolts into the existing wholes and works great.
New solenoid installed.
To access solenoid by removing three screws and taking off the left side cover.
