Your done!!! Reinstall the battery and give it a test spin for a few seconds while the kill switch is off. Make sure it spins freely and your engine rotates.



When I did this refresh it fixed my starting problems in two ways.



1) It takes considerably less current to roll the bike over now. The starter no longer “Stalls”.

2) The bike actually starts quicker as there is more power going to the ignition system for a hotter spark.



This had made an incredible difference in the starting of my bike. I would recommend to anyone to do this. It is easy, fun and you get a great sense of accomplishment out of it. The job takes about 2 hours to do.



Let me know what you think. Enjoy!!!

Only thing I would like to add: when removing/installing the nut with the wire on it, use a thin 10mm wrench to hold the stud below. I loosened up mine and twisted the stud breaking the wires inside. I had to buy a new starter. Just a word to the wise!
