    Arrow Polaris Starter motor - current draw?

    How many amperes does a typical Polaris starter motor draw when cranking over a three cylinder domestic engine that is warmed up?

    I want to get an idea how much current the starter motor is pulling from the battery for the few seconds it takes to crank up a warm engine.

    10 Amps?
    20 Amps?
    50 Amps?
    100 Amps?

    Is there a spec somewhere for the starter motor?

    If I'm reading the schematic correctly in my spiffy new 2000 Service Manual for the SLX, the solenoid draws power from a "Circuit Breaker 15A (Manual Reset)". So I would guess it draws something less than 15A?

    It is not the solenoid coil's current draw I am after.

    I want to know the starter motor's amperage

    There are no fuses between the battery and the starter motor, just the heavy contacts inside the solenoid.

    Just for fun, here is a rusty example of a solenoid actuator
