After reading lots and lots of posts, and experiencing a dragging starter on my 86 Electraglide, I dove right in and changed the cables and the battery. The weather was awesome outside, I got in a hurry and got one of the nuts too tight on the solenoid, cracking the housing. Of course now all the solenoid will do is click and smoke, so it has gotta come out. I've heard the Accel solenoids are good, looks like I might be able to pick one up locally, but I want to do this right, and ONCE, so if there is something better out there than Accel let me know please. And as long as I'm this far into it, should I pull out the starter? I have a great starter/alternater guy here in town that can probably do the brushes/bearings in the starter, he has rebuilt lots of car starters for me with great success. Does my primary cover have to come off to get this year model of starter off? The manual doesn't describe removing the primary cover, but does talk about keeping the starter "in one piece" as it is removed from its spot. Don't want to create more work for myself, but figured that freshening up the starter, maybe even replacing the starter relay, might be a good idea, especially if the starter on my bike isn't too tough to remove and replace. Thanks in advance for any suggestions and thoughts.
