Make sure you disconnect and clean all of the main ground wires. Especially the ones in starter circuit. (I think there are 3). Very important.

I recently applied this mod to my '00. I must say it works like gangbusters. The bike starts quicker and better than it has maybe ever. My only question is whether or not there are any long term side effects and what's the longest anyone has run with this mod? Has it caused anyone any problems?

Another satisfied user of this mod! My bike had a very hard time starting before. I rebuilt the starter and saw some improvement but still would take a minute or two to get started sometimes so I opted to do this simple mod. So far my bike starts way quicker than before and I'm no longer embarrassingly sitting there trying to start my bike! Thanks for the post!

Amazing difference!

So I just finished this mod and rode around for quite a while. It's like a completely different bike from how it ran before! It starts right up first try! The only silly thing i did at first was to attach the power wire to the starter side of the relay and it would only run with the start button pushed lol. Thank you fergy for the write up!

I made pick-up coil mod first, made only minor changes with engine start and running. After coil mod with relay engine starts just by looking at the start button First i have measured coils voltage drops, it was only 0,25V on hot side, but this drop made a big difference.
