Question 92 CV Starter Problems

Started having no start problems with my 92 CV--problem is intermittent, battery is fully charged and alternator is working--when it doesn't work, I hear a strong click sound coming from over on the rider's side fender--my read of the service manual says there is a starter relay on the fender (which I can plainly see) on the rider's side, and a built-in relay/solenoid mounted to the starter--any guesses which is the more likely culprit, the fender mounted relay or the combination starter/solenoid--and why did they split the starter solenoid function up like this??

It could also be a bad connection. Either solenoid is possible. 50/50
guess.

I picked the one on the fender which is cheaper/easier--we'll see--thanks.

and then I changed the starter/solenoid too and also replaced the idle air control valve--got her running like a new one now.

Question Re: 92 CV Starter Problems

But I still don't understand why this model year has 2 different relay/solenoids (one on the fender, one down on the starter)???
