Electronics are really copied. Fake Bosch galore all over the place. Even by suppliers looking to make a few dollars. I’m convinced that Norton have been ripped off with fake Bosch sensors, fake denso starters and fake bosch ignition coils. Because the ones on the bikes are as shit as they get. Half the norton starters dont even have oil seals for wet environments. Seriously, if you haven’t changed all the sensors and coils it’s only time before you’re bike is running like shit or having issues. And if your starters leak oil, well the transmission vent can only do so much. There is no oil seal in half the starters we’ve seen. Ask TonyA what he learned about buying a “genuine” harley starter off ebay????I just ordered the proper stuff, same price but only 1/10 the volume
You really have got to watch out for the rippoffs from the far east, the labels, the description, and I don't usually get ripped off that easy. It will come in handy on the lawn mower I'm sure.
