Check the ring gear on the clutch basket to make sure the teeth are all in good condition. Check the starter clutch and armature assembly and make sure that the teeth inside aren't chewed up.

4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.

Top end chattering sounds like rockers bike only has 11000 miles seems early to be the rockers chattering


This is not good. The sportsters, and Big Twins, all have hydraulic tappets and there should be no chattering coming from the rocker arms. The hydraulic tappets are designed to keep the rocker arms at zero backlash.

Oil pressure, keeps the tappets pumped up prevents the rockers from clattering loudly. If you have a major problem you will have a clearly audible clatter that you won't have to "try" to hear. You can hear them clatter from ten feet away. If you have to get your head down beside the rocker box to hear any "chattering" the rockers are making, this is normal. You simply can't have that much mechanical movement going on in there and not hear anything.

With the engine running, pull the oil filler plug out of the oil tank. Shine a flashlight into the tank and rev the engine up a bit. You should see oil squirting back into the tank from the return back towards the rear of the tank. If you don't see it, look for small foamy bubbles on top of the oil. If you see the oil returning to the tank or the surface of the oil is foamy looking and moving around, your oil system is operating properly. If you oil tank gets hot when you are riding the bike, your oil system is working fine. Harley engines employ a high volume low pressure oil system. The Sportster engine is probably the toughest engine Harley has ever invented.

83 Yamaha xj650 Bike turns over once and then just chaters How do I remove the starter clutch


sounds like that chatter is your solenoid, not starter clutch. Try a jumper cable on battery and see if that doesn't work... make sure donor vehicle is used with their engine not running...next you need to fully charge your battery or buy a new one....good luck to you friend..Tim
