Default part number for 1981 XLH

yes. i have a parts manual on the way, but i want to go head and order my next parts shippment so it will travel the weekend.

anyway. the part i need is 1981 STARTER SOLENOID

nowhere sales one that clearly states 1981, they all end 1980.
is it 71469-65b? 69?
then is it single bracket or double bracket?

thanks!

should i go with accel? jpcycle shows only one from Standard Moto Prod - but still no oem part number associated with it.

what i plan to do is get the solenoid and drop it and the whole starter unit of with a gray beard to have it rebuild. dont 'feel' like doing this right job.

thanks yall

Starting 1981 the starter motor and the solenoid are one assembly, not two separate parts as in 1980 and previous years.

oh, okay...
so what your saying is only the parts in the solenoid can be replaced since the solenoid itsself cannot be removed?

i need to test each componet or take the whole thing to a shop??

thanks for the help Mick

I do not have any experience with the 81-on solenoid/starter assembly. Perhaps someone else will comment.

You should be able to uninstall it, dismantle, clean, inspect and test. There is a chapter on it in the 99484-85 factory service manual page 5-9 to 5-16 - looks like everything you need to know.

The Nippon starter solenoid can be rebuilt for ~ $12 in parts from you auto electric shop.
Unless you need a new plunger +$12~.

Take all needed parts in to rebuilder to match up as there are many different layouts.

Make sure solenoid windings are correctly secured (bent tabs) or you will have trouble.
