Sprague clutch so the starter isnt spinning all the time, a starter relay
and what you have mentioned
but that wont charge your battery if you want that you will be looking at a different stator and a regulator

yeap, i would need to buy the whole electric starter set, including the sparg clutch. Has anyone done this before??

Husaberg_spareparts_2005.pdf shows pretty clearly what i need for the project

hmm, im just wondering how expensive those parts will be :/ any clue?

I think the motor is the most expensive part, and i saw that taffy is selling those at 80GBP.. which sounds OK price to me.

No Thats not the most expencive part !! Its probably the gears and then the stator.
I think you have to expect more than 500 gbp !!!

black and red.?!

But i think i leave the stator for next time, so im gonna only install the motor and gears. I just have to recharge the battery every time, which sounds kinda stupid.

Re: Is it possible to install Electric starter to FC model?

i can do you the starter sprague assembly used and also the starter clutch so thats the bits in the left cover done. the starter motor you know about but you'll need the mounting bracket which is very expensive new at 44GBP.

then you need a battery in a battery box, an earth wire, then a starter solenoid and it's rubber block and mounting, two red positive HT leads and then you go to the ignition on the crank

i trust you have the small flywheel with the pick ups set infield? if so, you need the larger FE flywheel and stator to suit. it might be that someone will swop with you wants to race still. if not you can buy the FE stuff because these bikes are on the cusp of being broken now.

Hi!

Yes, i have the small flywheel, only two wires comes out of the stator.

Is there a 'aftermarket' solenoid & starter relay available? What should i be looking for, i honestly have no idea what so ever..? I cant even find the original solenoid from the sparepart list.

Edit: Solenoid = Relay? :P Jesus christ, am i that stupid. Well,if thats the case, what kind of relay should i be looking for? =)

Re: Is it possible to install Electric starter to FC model?

go for an R6 starter motor, solenoid and any large HT cables they will supply.

but you still have the problem of the flywheel and stator. I'm not sure you should buy anything until you have bought these items. sourcing them could be fun! (or not! )
