Solenoid cover

Post by ABGL1000 »

I'm replacing the starter solenoid on my 79 and it appears that I've misplaced the cover for it. Has anyone used smaller rubber terminal boots on both the battery cable and starter cable in place of the cover?

Those are still available new from Honda. Your 1979 part is either 32411-230-000 or 32411-253-000. I'm not sure which your bike takes but they both look like the picture you show in your original post.Your dealership parts guy can tell you which is right for your GL1000 if you check with him.
