Starter Motor

The starter motor is a 12-volt, series field 2-pole or 4-pole drive motor which engages the clutch ring gear through a Bendix type drive and a reduction gear unit. The two pole 2-brush type was used on early Servi-care. The four pole 4-brush type is used on the Electra-Glide, Servi-car and Sportster modela. A solenoid relay provides battery current directly to the motor. The solenoid is controlled by a button switch on the handle bar. On some models control circuit has a cut-out switch in the transmission cover. Switch plunger contacts a nub on the shifter can only when transmission is in neutral to complete the starting circuit. This prevents starter operation when transmission is in gear.
