After my top end rebuild on my 87 glide my stock hitachi starter stuggles to turn over the engine. New battery and pistons were only 5 over so it's not high compression. Will a starter rebuild help my problem or can I adapt the newer starters to this motor. Any ideas on how to increase the cranking power.

If my battery is fully charged or if the bike sits in the sun and is warm I don't have a problem. Even before the rebuild it was slow to turn over, but always started. I have the 22 amp alternator, I wonder if I need to upgrade to the 32 amp to keep my battery strong? How many amp is your bike charging
