    Solenoid Starter

    Can somebody tell me whether it's possible to put a solenoid starter switch on a 1990 FXR. The problem is I can't locate one to fit my 1990 bike they only seem to be available for 1991 onwards and that's in the USA!

    If they are available in the UK where can I obtain one?

    Thanks all

    Re: Solenoid Starter

    That one fitted my 1988 FLH

    it has 3 screws holding it in place

    it should fit yours
