    Default Installing new Starter

    Hello guys, I am new on this site, 80 years old, been riding for 65 years and have recently purchased a 2006 SB ZZ4 trike with 3,000 miles on it. Just about every gasket is being replaced as the leaks are slowly being resolved. My son, who owns a chain of NAPA auto repair shops, is going to replace the intake manifold gaskets soon as they are leaking badly. I have a new starter to install as the old one burnt up from the previous owner spinning it over long term trying to crank it when there has been a fuel delivery problem upon cranking. I have the ability to replace starter and wanted to check with you guys prior to installation. Are there any tricks or is installation straight forward? What is the torque value on the mounting bolts and how many are there? Thanks in advance for information. Jim McDonald, Canton, Georgia

    Hi, Jim.

    Not sure on the torque on the bolts.
    Should be whatever the torque would be on an automotive starter.

    Removed defective starter. Two bolts and three wires. Easy. Starter saturated with oil from leaking intake manifold gaskets. I guess it could not absorb any more. Replacing gaskets soon.
