Everything you get in the kit

This didn't last long though, because as I raised the baggy over my head, arms stretched towards the heavens in triumph, the brrrrrrrap of my knuckles against the ceiling fan quickly deflated my elation.
But you're right, I probably won't touch it until it gives me problems. I ordered the solenoid and rebuild kit last week after the solenoid stuck closed and melted my battery terminal.

She's a purring
It was nasty all weekend here, plus I forgot to pick up the parts Friday, so I did the coil relay mod this evening. She started with just a moment of spin, and only needed a few seconds of choke.
I still plan to rebuild the starter and do the pick up mod but it was nice to hear it run for a moment tonight.
To recap, I bought her a couple of weeks ago as a non running motorcycle, with the PO only knowing that it would only start when jumped even with a new battery. I promptly melted that new battery.
