You can get the 500 cca Lithiums now for about $150, that would fit right in, or if you don't like the Lithiums, you could make you a nice looking leather saddle bag that would hold a big battery..I had one on my shovel chop and it looked very nice, plus it is easy to access ,..

Hmm, I'm not really finding any lithium batts for that amount.

I was looking at big boar 350 which I don't think is lithium
Anti gravity which is def over the 150 mark and don't know much about them
Any suggestions for the smaller lithium?

They say that the scorpions require no special charger because they have their own special maintenance system in them ...read a little farther down....

I picked up the scorpion stinger battery suggested.. Started great 4 times... Let it run and warm up.. Then tried a fifth time "clunk" of the starter plunger!!!! *^%#%%#^!!!!!
Comp releases new battery... Which still reads the same volts so nothing parasitic. I heard to run a ground wire to a mounting screw of the starter.. But there already is a ground connection.
Should I,

A: try pushing the comp releases to get it off the comp stroke
B: get a new starter
C: blow it the f@&$ up

Assuming that a isn't the answer because it's too coincidental that after the 5th ish start Everytime with two batteries would end up on the comp stroke
And assuming that B may not have anything to do with the issue.. The plunger is hitting home hard. So there is a good connection. Maybe dead spots in the starter? However that would give off a grinding sound if I'm not mistaken. I'm at a loss at this point. Would be different it the batt were draining into the magical kingdom of where the hell ever but it isn't. Any help would be appreciated. When he rain stops I'm gonna try and pull the starter assembly and tear it apart to see what if any damage is done.

Also heard of cats buying bigger amped starters... Which are goofy expensive.
Help a jar head out here!!!

Also, just read another thread involving a starter issue. Maybe it is the ground?? But would it still be pushing the plunger out?!

On my 127, I have to hold both compression releases down at the same time in order for it to turn over..on the rear release I mounted a short piece of coat hanger wire to the motor mount bolt that I bend down and sit on top of the release..When it starts I have to move the wire off so it will pop back up...This is the only way...
Have you checked your module for a ..electric or kick start switch??..you want to be set for kick start, so it will fire the first round...instead of 4th round.. I'll bet this would solve your problem..Unless it is the starter, but may not be..With out the wire on the rear release , my motor does the same clunk...By the way next time it goes clunk would it still do it if you pulled both plugs out? that would tell you if it were the starter or just too much compression.

I'll give that a shot...

What module are you talking about? I'm sure if I knew where it was, it would be set to electric.

It takes the place of your points, right side of engine by your brakes....The Crane cam has a switch for that..

Update--

1: the ignition just has numbers and it's set to 0 can't remember the slope number
2: turned key 8 times.. All with comp releases pushed in, didn't turn over just the clunk of the starter.
3: took out plugs, no turn over just clunk.
4: moved around to the side so I could access the starter to possibly take it off, unplugged the ground (which the male end is loose) contemplated taking the starter off but decided against it just yet (didn't feel like removing battery and oil bag to get to it. Plugged the ground back in and for shits and giggles turned the key,, fired up. Let it run shut it off. Fired it right up. Did that a total of three times.
5: walked away with hands in the air. Makes no sense!!

Ground? But if it was would it even engage the plunger??? So confused

Good ..which ground did you unplug? Are you sure you unplugged a ground wire? the starter is grounded with large #2 wire
and is bolted to the starter , the solenoid grounds to the starter..are you talking about the solenoid wire that plugs onto the solenoid? maybe just corrosion....
yes the plunger could engage , but be weak if you have a voltage drop there...glad you found it..

One other thing, it is more likely that your selonoid contacts are corroision or burnt..when mine was doing that, I could here the plunger hit but the starter would not engage...tap on the selonoid and bamm!...Thats very easy to fix , just pull the cover off of the selonoid and scrape the contacts or sand clean...
