Question Can I use this aftermarket starter solenoid?

http://www.jegs.com/i/JEGS+Performan...10301/10002/-1

It seems pretty basic, Jegs model, I'm only concerned about this part: "WARNING! This solenoid DOES NOT use suppression diodes. Use of this solenoid on vehicles with Engine Control Computers will result in permanent damage to the computer/processor."

I'm replacing the stock because of where I want to mount it, and it's the same cost to just get an aftermarket one or machine a bracket.

Are there others that people would recommend?

You could use it, or get one that fits at Mikesxs.net, Part #40-2461. They come up on ebay, too. Oh nevermind, I actually read what you wrote.

Go ahead and use it.

This is the one that I used:

It works with the existing wiring and comes with a bracket to mount it.

The XS solenoid coil is wired with an always-hot supply wire, the starter button supplies the ground path.

The two small terminals you see on the Ford solenoid are 'start' and 'ignition' (identified with S and I). The S terminal operates the solenoid, the I terminal becomes a 12V supply when the solenoid is closed to bypass the ballast resistor.

It can be used if he fabricates the proper isolating mount.

The other thing is I don't think he realizes just how big that solenoid is; it's about twice the size of the OEM unit....

Yup, I just grabbed one off of e-bay. Mine fits everything from 4 wheelers to street bikes. The wiring plug is the same too.
