  • Clutch shaft and rollers are replaced with precision-ground and hardened parts for longer service life
  • All components are assembled with a special lube for starter roller clutch applications

  • After assembly, all starters go to a dyno test including hi-low voltage, stall torque, solenoid engagement, amperage draw, load test, maximum rpm and motor impulse wave form
  • Starters have a 4.4:1 gear reduction and produce 46% more cranking torque than the stock starter
  • Starters available in four kilowatt ratings (1.2, 1.4, 1.6 and 2.0)
  • The 1.6 kW starter is designed for 96" or bigger motors with limited size batteries such as FXR, FXST and FXD models
