I am going to plug it and dont have a caliper yet. Want to see if I can find a O-ring plug that will work online.

Also, anyone hammered in a freezeplug, was wondering how easy the case would shatter.

Never heard of someone getting rid of their starter...why?

Making a no frills street dub. Dropping electric start and making a new harness sans safety switches and excess. Fabbing a storage canister for where the starter motor sits and selling the starter motor to buy other goodies.

Old Thread !!!!
Sorry to bring up the past but I am looking to ditch the starter. Did anyone get a plug to fit the starter hole?

You could try sending IBXR a PM as he has a TW where he removed the starter and another 30 pounds of stuff. I did not pay attention to the starter detail on his very stripped down TW. It may have been as simple as an automotive freeze plug.

Ok I just finished the starter delete. Went to autozone and got an expandable 1"- 1-1/8" rubber plug. Had to find different washers and a different bolt so for $4.24 including tax I got a piece of rubber that did the job. Removed the starter gear and ground wire as well as the + from the battery. Also took out the neutral wire while I was in there. Put it all together with a new gasket and started it up first kick. I am sure the mod is good for at LEAST 25% rear wheel HP gain plus no unsightly extra wires!

Fred your memory is very sharp.....I did use a rubber expanding freeze plug. I thought it was going to be a temporary solution....2+ years later....no leaks or problems! I will be watching this post for a better solution, but so far so good.
