Goofyfoot2001 They are pretty solid. The contacts are over a half an inch thick so would take a while for them to wear down.

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.
I purchased a starter rebuild kit also, ....completed my order obtaining free shipping . I have not yet needed to use it.

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.
