Who's Rick? Is this a business? Got a web address?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks,

Rayjoe

I've learned so much from my mistakes, I'm thinking about making a few more.

Here's a novel idea; Your local Honda dealer.

Go in armed with the list price ($85.38) so the can't rip you off. Usually shops offer a 10% discount if you belong to certain organizations, so take your membership cards.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
Thomas Paine December, 1776

A few weeks ago, I replaced the starter solenoid on my '86 GL1200.

There's nothing wrong with going OEM but I figured I'd chime in with my experience from buying the new one off Ebay for $6 + shipping.

TOTALLY WORTH IT. Everything I've read suggests the blade fuse is superior to the dogbone fuse, it's exponentially cheaper, and it fit right in.

I'm sure you've got your own reasons for wanting to go OEM (I had my own reasons for wanting to use OEM wiring when I replaced my solenoid) but unless you're just wanting to spend that money on the OEM part you're just as well off going with the Ebay special.
