hi all just for every one info this is how i wired up the ford starter relay on my roady for clarity the photos are of the same mod on a nother yamaha model.
i done this a couple of weeks ago and it has been unreal ever since.
Here is what parts you will need.
Napa (ford solenoid) Part # ST82SB
2 Metric 6M Flange head bolts and nuts.
1ft of 6 gauge battery cable
3 Crimp on ring terminals for 6 gauge cable (you need to make sure these will fit over the big posts on the solenoid.)
2ft of 12 gauge Primary Wire
6 Crimp on ring terminals for 12 gauge wire (I perfer the type that you heat shrink after you crimp them on.)
#1 Start off by taking the seat, tool kit out.
#2 take the left side cover off and disconect the stock starter relay you will be needing it,
then remove the tray that holds all the fuses and wires.
#3 then cut off the tabs that hold the stock starter relay in place, you will need the room for the new ford one and the stock one to go in.
#5 Find the cable that went from the stock yamaha relay to the starter. You will need to cut the end that bolted to the stock relay off. Then crimp on one of the 6 gauge ring terminals. Hook that wire up to the LH side big post on the solenoid. i took this opitunity to replace it with a #4 cable it cost ne about $6 from supper cheap auto.
#6 (Short yellow wire) Make a small short jumper wire that will go from where the starter cable use to hook up on yamaha relay and hook it up to the small post on the Ford Solenoid that has an S. (we wont use the other small terminal with an I above it.) Use a piece of the 12 gauge primary wire and 2 crimp on heat shrink ring termainals.
#7 now run the old stock POS cable from the pos battery terminal to the RH side big post of the ford solenoid.
#8 (Long yellow wire) Make a jumper wire that runs from the POS battery terminal to where the old battery cable ran. Again use a pice of 12 gauge primary wire and 2 crimp on ring heat shrink terminals.
#9 (Blue wire) Make a ground wire for the solenoid. Use a pice of 12 gauge primary wire with 2 crimp on heat shrink ring terminals. Run it from one of the mounting bolt holes to the neg terminal of the battery or a grounded bolt.
