The starter motor is a 12-volt, series field 4-pole drive motor which engages the clutch ring gear through a Bendix type drive and reduction gear unit. A solenoid relay provides battery current directly to the motor. The solenoid is controlled by a button switch on the handlebar. On some models control circuit has a cut-out switch in the transmission cover. Switch plunger contacts a nub on the shifter cam only when transmission is in neutral to complete the starting circuit. This prevents starter operation when transmission is in gear.
