Harlys are clunky when shifting, have you tried adjusting your clutch? You also might need to adjust the primary drive belt tension.

Have you tried to bypass the starter button/switch? Use a heavy jumper wire to go between the starter terminal and the positive battery terminal. Turn the key to "On" position, make sure "Run/Off" switch is turn on. Make sure bike is in neutral. I've started guys bikes with coat hangers before when they lost had trouble with the starter button. If the bike starter turns over, you'll at least have a place to start looking for the issue. Also you said you checked the battery, what was the voltage?

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. I tried your solutions, but bike will still not start. Do not see any pinched wires. When you push the start button the ignition circit pops and then resets. Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks for all your help phinfanls13"
SOURCE: i need the ignition wiring
I have a wiring diagram but I can't get it to you via this forum. You'll have to contact me directly off forum at firstname.lastname@example.org . Does your bike have two or four spark plugs? I'll send you a scanned copy, not the best in the world but it's a schematic. Make sure you tell me what you need as I get request from everywhere.

Either the starter button, a starter relay or the starter solenoid must be sticking and causing the starter to continue running. It is also possible that the starter is not releasing from the starter gear and is being driven by that.

The first thing to do is to disconnect the battery. Then, you'll have to take everything on the right side of the bike off that impedes your getting to the starter. You may have to remove the exhaust system completely. Take the battery cable off the starter. Then, on the left side of the bike, loosen the lock nut on the primary chain adjuster beneath the primary and turn the primary chain tension adjuster bolt out about two turns or so. Remove the footpeg and shfiter from that side of the bike. Take the drain plug out and drain the oil out of the primary. Remove the derby cover and take the spring and lock nut out of the clutch release mechanism. Remove the bolts that hold the primary cover on. These bolts are different lengths and sizes. Make sure you make a drawing of which bolt goes where. Turn the clutch adjuster screw clockwise while you remove the outer primary cover. Do not take the clutch cable loose but rather just put the primary cover aside somewhere. Remove the two large bolts inside the primary located just above the clutch assembly. At this point, your starter should come out.
