if you put the starter splines next to the splines inside the bike and turn the whole starter in very small increments and pushing in after moving it a little you will eventually get it to pop in. Don't hand move the shaft leave it alone. Just move the whole starter in the same direction in small increments and it will pop in. You shouldn't have to move it more than 1/4 inch but in smaller increments up to that ¼".

Sorry for redundancy just trying to explain in detail.

unless you have a different starter than mine, the starter or hot wire should be the opposite of the mounting holes. Just pull the rear end of the starter away ever so slightly and turn the entire starter so the hot wire post is toward the tire and the mounting bolts are aligned up with the mounting holes.

Did you rebuild your starter?

That is obviously the reserve tank. I have been trying forever to find that damn thing.
