starter selinoid

Ok I have a 1982 gl1100 I have posted on here before about fuse problems And got that fixed thanks to help from here. I just have a question to where is a good place to get a selinoid at. My bike will start if I cross the selenoid but only clicks if I hit the starter button.

Sure sounds like a bad connection somewhere from the starter button or maybe inside the button area or the connection to the solenoid itself...If it's starting when you jump it across the two post I think your solenoild is fine or maybe not??? :shock: ..I replaced my stock solenoid with one off ebay , it was one from Rick's, it was green in color..I like green.. :D Never had an issue with it..
