VT500 starter relay the same as FT500 starter relay ?
« on: July 10, 2017, 06:32:13 AM »
The starter relay has gone out on my FT500.  Not able to find one at the usual places.  Am able to find one for a VT500 from Honda.
They look very similar - the VT500 has a fuse where the FT500 has a fusible link.  About the only difference I see.

Can anyone confirm or has anyone used on of those on their FT500 ?     I mean, they are about the same right ?

Out of curiosity, pics of FT's original starter relay? Mine has a generic one with two wires and an external fuse, done by one of the previous owners so I've never seen the original...

Here you go.  This is what is on mine.  There is no difference between the two relays.  Just a simple relay with a 15 Amp fuse on it.
