before you go and change the starter,you should check your battery voltage because thet is what sounds like your problem is.Your battery is not sending enough voltage to your starter soilnoid to engage the starter

It's best to use the Harley Davidson fluild as it has special additives that the aftermarket oils don't have. Oils checp compared to tranny's and or their repair. See you at the dealer

If it's the front axle you are probably fighting either the pinch bolt that keeps the axle from coming loose on the road, a misalignment between the fork bottoms and probably a little corrosion on the threads.
1) First off do the simple stuff: make sure that the pinch bolts (2 of them on the bottom of the shifter side fork) are loose. then move on to step 2
2)For the corrosion an aerosol penetrating fluid left to soak a few hours or overnight can work wonders. Be sure to do both sides.
A misalignment can be bad news, it usually means a bent axle, but even then you can relieve stress on the axle by removing the front fender and letting the ends find their own parallel. In extreme cases dropping the forks out of the triple clamps could even be necessary....but you'd be able to see the bend just by casual inspection for that to be the case.
The rear axle requires many more steps due to tension from the belt tensioner causing trouble if things aren't done in a precise order in regards to the belt. BEWARE if your firebolt is an 03 or 04 and has it's original belt they can be damaged by improper handling which leads to unhappy rider stranded by broken belt. If you need more help beyond this I really recommend looking up the website www.badweatherbikers.com They are a friendly bunch of dedicated bunch of Buell fanatics and can help with any problem.

Well, it depends on how nimble your fingers are!
for the front plug: remove the shifter side air scoop. . You should be able to get an open end wrnch up onto the plug pretty easily. When it is loose remove the spark plug boot from the plug. Next put the new plug up into the head and start the threads gently BY HAND!. This is an aluminum head and the plug has steel threads. You do not want to strip those threads. Once the plug is finger tight give it another 1/6 to 1/4 turn with the open ended wrench. then reach up with those nimble fingers (or a pair of plug boot pliers) and slip the plug wire back on until it seats.
The rear head requires the removal of the inner and outer airbox. you can then reach down and remove the plug wire. removing the plug requires a plug socket, an extension 6-8 inches and either 1 or 2 swivels depending on how close to the frame the extension is when on the plug. back it out and remove. I recommend using a piece of rubber tubing to hold onto the rear plug in order to carefully start the plug into the threads (see above). Then once it is "finger tight" remove the tubing and use the socket to tighten properly.
Then you re-assemble your bike and go for a ride. It sounds harder than it is, and with a bit of practice we were doing this in between rounds on the race bike in minutes.
