Not from that picture.
To fit a auto starter solenoid to the wing,the solenoid must have 4 connections.
2 large studs and 2 small connectors for the coil.
Some solenoid have only one small connector as I see in the picture.They use the mounting plate as its ground.This type cannot be used as the wing has a neutral safety wire that goes to the coil.
If it's bypassed,the bike can crank whether in neutral or not.

Are there 2 of the small blade connectors on it or just the one.?
The bikes 2 large red wires at the original solenoid can be joined together and a heavy duty waterproof 10 gauge fuseholder with a 30 amp fuse connected to the battery positive cable .

It appears to have only one connector for the coil.You can verify its function by touching the mounting bracket to ground then applying 12 volts to the small terminal.if it clicks,the coil is using the bracket for the ground wire.the only way to use this solenoid would be to completely insulate the bracket from ground and hook the neutral wire to it.
