Hi, Anonymous the starter clutch is a separate mechanical gear driven component that is activated by the starter motor, it engages the clutch pack gear or the flywheel gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one "ONE DIRECTION" only and once the engine starts allows the gear to free spin with engine rotation. If the starter gear free spins in "BOTH DIRECTIONS" then the drive gear has failed, it might be serviceable on some models but usually needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: bike won't turn over

the starter has a silinoid that kicks the starter shaft into the clutch hub that turns the engine over...if the starter is turning but the engine is not, it is likely that the silinoid is not working......It bolts onto the starter and can be replaced without to much trouble..

SOURCE: Starter motor spinning but not turning over engine

take the starter off and look in at the flywheel to see if the teeth are in good shape if not the fly wheel needs replaced...if they are in good shape then the solinoid may be bad on the starter...take it to a electric motor shop they will likely test it for free

SOURCE: starter works but gears seem to free spin, wont crank engine

sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. If you can see the large gear that sits behind the rotor and its turning but the rotor isnt turning the sprag clutch has failed. Very costly. usualy you would have a missed start eg not engaging every now and then before this fails all together.

SOURCE: starter grinding

It could be any number of things but the most likely in my opinion is that you have a bad "over running clutch" or "starter clutch" in your bike. You didn't tell me what year model bike you have but the header of this post says you have a 2000 FLSTC Heritage.

The starter clutch can be replaced and you can save some money if you can do your own work. If not, the cost of repairing your starter and simply replacing the starter is about the same due to the added labor time required to take yours apart and replace the bad part. The starter clutch cost about $120 US. Once you get the starter off, there is about another hour labor to replace the clutch.

Good luck
Steve

The whirling your describing sounds like your describing a whirling starter that's not turning the motor, the starter is just spinning internally. Bad starter if so. Check the teeth on the flywheel if u pull the starter too.

Remove starter from engine leaving the wire conected, earth out the strter to the engine and pres the starter button, if the starter spins, it is likely you have a starter clutch problem, this test will eliminate the starter being at fault, presume u have checked battery condition
