Geff,

Parts #1, #3, and #2 are not part of your starter motor. All those parts you see below make up the gearing that starts your bike and are completely separate from the starter motor, however, connect to it.

Note the location of the Starter Battery Terminal. You may need to lengthen the cable to get it to fit.
