We highly recommend changing your current starter cable to the heavy-duty 6 gauge cable kit (part number 06-5909/10/11/L)
If you are using a Boyer ignition system on your Norton, we have found electric starters draw too much current for the Boyer to work properly. We would recommend changing back to a points system, or a DIGITAL electronic ignition system like a Tri-Spark or Pazon electronic ignition system. The Lucas RITA system will work, but is no longer manufactured.
If you have preexisting problems or defects with your starter mechanism, a new starter motor will only make these issues more apparent.
