Your 310 CCA battery should spin that 1.4KW starter EASILY!!

Do you still have your old starter that you just took off?

You can bench test it (or take it to a shop and have it bench tested) to see if it's still good

Or you can take off the one that you just put on and test it too

Either way you have plenty of battery for your starter(s)

Of course, this all assumes that your wiring and connections are good too

I would strongly suggest that you NOT put in a 2.4KW starter:

I don't know that you'll be able to fit a battery with enough CCAs in your battery box

Even if your 310CCA battery will turn it over when all conditions are right, you won't have much of a reserve for when you have less than 100% charge.

Those huge starters also put a greater strain on all of the wiring and electrical components involved

Simply put, you don't need a starter that big. and it is actually counterproductive to what you want to do

Your best manual is gonna be a HD '99 Softail Service Manual

You could also get an S&S Super Sidewinder PLUS Service Manual

Your brake calipers are PM 4 piston "Classic" clones

So any pads for those will fit

Merlin/fasthd

You all know exactly what brake pads I need for a 2005 HBS Hellion? I heard from a shop in Cali that they are PM 4PST but their seem to be a couple different shapes with that reference. I don't want to end up like "Heavy Metal" as Daytona Bike Week starts this weekend and I just picked this bad boy chopper up las Monday. It has like mill of pad left front and back. I'm willing to try and change them out myself but the back looks like I have to take the back tire off to get to them. Any words of wisdom for me and my new ride would be GREATLY appreciated.

Scrotum! Thank you for all the help you gave me last year! Hope all is well with you. Well I replaced my brake pads and left the rear alone. After a major ordeal with the motor oil and a bike shop (too much oil but they started taking the motor apart!) all has run pretty solid. Just recently my starter (?) went out on me and I need to buy a new one. Would this one work? POWER HOUSE PLUS ECONOMY STARTER MOTORS FOR BIG TWIN When I disassembled the rear spindle I found one of the brackets that hold two of the four brushes has come loose. I had a friend spot weld it but then found one of the copper threads around one of the plates of the outside case was broken so I am need of a new one. I am guessing I need to buy the whole assembly? On the inside of the cap I see a APEKS #45-8202 but goggling has produced nothing to match. Bike week is in 6 weeks!!! I sure do like the price of this one I found!

Hey guys, I run into one of HBS's builders once in a while. The last time I saw him he was working at a local shop. I'm going down there later this week, if he's still there I'll let you know. He might be able to help both of you.

You might contact Spitfire motorcycles in So Cal, ask for Paul.
