Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard
Hi Phil, first when checking anything in the starter circuit you must make sure the battery connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends and has a 12.5 volt or better charge. It must not fall below 9 volts during the cranking procedure with a volt meter hooked up. If it does fall below 9 volts do a proper load test on the battery and replace if necessary. Second replace the starter relay cheap $6 and make sure it's well grounded and getting 11.5 volts or better to activate. Third remove the back cover of the starter solenoid and de-arc/refurbish the contact plate and shoes making sure they are tight. If it still chatters replace the solenoid. Good luck and have nice day.

Take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to load test the battery. Sometimes a battery will short out internally and do this. I have a diesel pickup that has done it twice and hit has two batteries. Everything seems fine until you hit the starter, then "bang" everything goes dead and in the truck, both batteries are fried.
On your bike, if it's a short somewhere, when you hit the start button, you should be able to hear and feel the main circuit breaker break. Then, a few seconds later, you should be able to hear it reset. If it is the breaker, you'll need a schematic to determine what is one each fused circuit. The reason you need to know that is because whatever is causing it is NOT on a fused circuit or it would blow a fuse instead of trip the main breaker.
If you don't have a schematic, I have one for a '99 model. It should be about the same. If you'll contact me off forum, I'll e-mail you a copy. This forum will not allow me to send a file over 150kb in size. If I reduce the size that much, when you blow the picture back up it's so distorted that you can't make it out. contact me at email@example.com Remind me of what you need.

This is pretty normal, it allows the pistons and cyclinders to warm as the superheated fuel atomizes behind the valves. lol. This is all technical **** for, your engine runs better when its warm, lol.
Also this allows the oil pressure to raise and send oil to the top end. I wouldnt worry about it. Harleys sometimes take longer to start as they sit, and all the components cool off. I would start beeing a little concerned if it is slow to start (like the battery is dieing) or when you do get it started and it idles for a while then cuts out. Though it is normal for an otherwise cold engine to stall at lower RPM.
Hope this helps
