Hi All,
There seems to be confusion with some people how the plug fits.
 I assumed it was self evident as anyone working on their own bike would be mechanically inclined(doh,shouldn't make assumptions)
Anyway, here's the 'ded' CB350 case I use to check they fit properly
1. From the outside, not fully pushed 'home' as it's only there for pics
How it looks from the outside


2. From the inside, turn plug to get screws in best position.
 It will work with only one screw but I like things to be symmetrical (some motors can only use one screw, there are variations in cases) When permanently fitting, I like to smear some sealant around plug and also Loctite screws in position.
The 'O' ring prevents dirt/water getting into the opening so it can be removed if you want to re-fit electric starter in the future, if it was moved further in you could get corrosion in there which could damage bore.
I forgot to mention, if you have corrosion in bore from stock starter motor, you need to clean it out with scraper/emery cloth/sandpaper or whatever
 It doesn't need any cross pieces, the screws only need to 'overlap a few thousandths on an inch to stop it falling out


I don't know what happened to pictures, they were still on photobucket.
I've reloaded them on post

Hi All,
 Don't know if your aware of it, but, USPS prices increased last Monday (23rd Jan)
 It's not too bad at present so I'm keeping postage at 'old' rate until next price rise (or they close local post office and I have to travel further  :( )

Yes,
Drain oil, Pull the side cover, pull the starter, put in plug. put side cover back on, refill oil.
Enjoy
