    Got on the bike and hit starter button ... nothing. Checked all the battery connections etc all good.
    Got my test light out and checked inbound power to solenoid....good. Checked outbound power from solenoid and hit starter button... nothing.
    Got a bad solenoid.
    $100 for Indian solenoid.
    Anyone know of a auto equivalent that uses same solenoid? Probably spend a 1/3 to 1/2 the cost vs Indian and get it at the local parts store.
    Any info is appreciated.

    B810D3D2-80B0-4C92-AB11-CA1F45832009.jpeg Are there any numbers on the solenoid? Can you possibly remove it and try to match it at the auto parts store?

    Posted a pic of what I found on Amazon. Pricey. There are some on eBay for about 50 bucks but I'd rather spend a little more and get a new one

    I can't believe where they located the starter solenoid!
    It's doable to R & R this but a pain in the a$$! The crossover pipe removed would give you some room....but fat fingers makes it a bitch. I won however. Heaven forgive my language.

    The only numbers on the solenoid was;
    12V
    L1
    1 16
    In that sequence.

    Found out the starter solenoid is pooched on the FTR. Bike is still under warranty so should be covered. Unfortunately, it is shipping from OH tomorrow so no way to know if it will make it in time for the Pow Wow <sniff>.
