Just bought this bad boy on sale:

https://www.dimecitycycles.com/vint...rts-honda-cb-cl-starter-solenoid-20-0062.html

the problem is that the male/female bullet connectors are the same as the bike:
Bike: Green (ground) is female, Yellow/Red (starter) is male.
Equipment: Green/red (ground) is also female, Yellow/Red (starter) is also male

I'm striking out finding the same Honda OE replacement with the correct male-to-female connectors. Should I buy a bullet connector kit and switch the wires so they line up correctly? Can anyone find the right OE replacement for at 73' CB450? Maybe I'm just installing it wrong...

Thanks for helping me put the final convenience touches on my vintage speed machine.

Cheers, all.

Someone should probably chime in here to confirm, but I don't think it makes a difference which way it's hooked up. It's just a coil.

Yeah, it's just a coil, and works either way.
