SOURCE: assy of starter clutch on 2003 Harley Davidson

The starter on a late model Harley is a typical Nippondenso gear reduction type starter. They are all basically the same except for size.
To replace the starter clutch inside the starter assembly requires disassembly of the starter assembly.

I you will contact me directly, I will scan the procedure and drawings out of a service manual for you.

SOURCE: how to remove starter on a 2003 softail harley

It's a lot of work.
First, disconnect and remove the battery. Don't want to lose a finger.
Drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover.
Remove the small bolt that holds the jackshaft onto the starter and remove it if you can. If it won't come out, you'll have to take the nut off the clutch assembly and slide it out just far enough to get the jackshaft out. To get to the nut, remove the clutch rod adjuster in the center of the clutch assembly by removing the snap ring. Loosen the nut, left handed threads. When retorquing 60-80 foot pounds, left handed. There is a coupling that connects the jackshaft to the starter, mark which way it comes out. Tapered end towards starter.
Remove the exhaust system if needed.
Remove all bolts holding the oil tank and lift it up as high as possible.
Disconnect the large battery cable and the small wire at the top of the starter.
Remove the two large bolts that hold the starter onto the inner primary cover.
Work starter out.

SOURCE: need to replace starter cluch assy 99 Harley Davidson

Replacing the starter clutch is pretty straight forward. Simply take the starter apart, swap the bearings from the old clutch to the new one, and reassemble.

This is one of those places where a picture is worth a thousand words.
If you'd like blow up of the starter contact me a wd4ity@bellsouth.net I'll scan the drawing in and send it to you. Make sure you tell me what you want. I get so many request that I can't remember all of them.

You have to pull the outer primary cover off to get to the bolts that hold the start on. Make sure you disconnect the battery.

SOURCE: 1972 shovelhead harley-davidson engine rebuilt

Thirty over is nothing. I just finished a rebuilt on a 1970 model and we went 0.050" over on it. It was already at 30 over and the pistons scored.

Anyway, don't use one of these cheap Chinese made bendix's. Get an ACCEL. They may be made in China but they're better. You can't get good Shovelhead parts anymore.

Now, before you put the outer primary back on, use your hand and operate the fork that shifts the bendix into engagement with the ring gear. Does it engage like it's supposed to. You'll probably have to turn it just a bit. Now, do it again with the outer primary on. Does it still engage smoothly?

Now, here's the cause of most starter grinding problems on a shovel. The starter, ring gear, and outer primary are all out of alignment. The starter housing, the one with the big gear in it is supposed to have alignment pins in it as well as the outer primary. These pins are to ensure that the starter drive and the ring gear are properly aligned with each other. With the starter and outer primary on, you should be able to pull on the plunger of the solenoid and the starter drive engage fully and smoothly. Also don't forget the large brass washer. This keeps the drive from going too far.

If you're worried about low voltage, take the battery to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test the battery. If it drops below 10 volts, buy a new battery.

How do you change a starter clutch on an 2003 Night train, I did get the HD dealer change it last summer but won't fix it again ? ths clutch turn but just a grinding nose and wont starte ! need a video...


To change the clutch starter you must first take the starter off the bike. To do this, disconnect the battery and take it out of the oil tank. Then, drain the primary and remove the outer primary cover. Take the small bolt that holds the starter jackshaft off and remove the jackshaft. Go to the right side of the bike and take all or part of the exhaust off so that you can get to the starter. Take the bolts out and take the mounting brackets off the oil tank so that you can lift it slightly to get to the starter bolts. Do not remove any oil lines. Disconnect the battery cable and the small single wire from the starter. Remove the two large socket head bolts that hold the starter on and remove the starter. There is a coupling on the starter that connects the starter to the jackshaft. Mark the direction it goes in, counterbored end towards the jackshaft, so that you can put it back in the correct direction. Once you have the starter off the engine, you must disassemble the starter to get to the clutch that is inside of it. Go to this site to get an exploded view of the starter. http://www.bikebandit.com/2003-harley-davidson-softail-night-train-fxstb/o/m18393#sch609301 The starter clutch is part #252 in the diagram. Do not disassemble the starter motor itself, just take the front off the starter.

Good Luck

How to install a starter on a harley heritage springer flsts


First, disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Then, drain the oil from your primary. Remove the floor boards, shifter or anything else you need to remove in to remove the outer primary cover. Remove the outer primary cover. Remove the small bolt holding the starter jackshaft in and remove the jackshaft. There is a coupler that connects the jackshaft to the starter motor. If it comes out with the jackshaft, mark it so that you know which way it goes back in. If you cannot get the jackshaft out. continue on and once you get the starter bolts loose, you should be able to work the jackshaft out. When you go to reinstall the starter, make sure you put the jackshaft back in before you tighten the starter bolts.

Now, on the right side of the bike, remove the exhaust system or whatever might be in the way of getting the starter off. Remove the bolts holding the oil tank but don't remove the tank. All you need is a little room that you get by lifting the tank up a bit. There are two large bolts holding the start onto the inner primary. Remove these two bolts and unplug the single wire going to the solenoid and the battery cable from the starter. Now, you can work the starter out from under the oil tank and off of the bike.

Do I have to remove the primary cover to remove starter on a 2003 FXDL?


Yes, you must take the jackshaft loose from the starter. Disconnect the battery. Drain and remove the primary cover. Just above the clutch, you'll see the jackshaft. Remove the small bolt and remove the jackshaft. When removing the jackshaft, there's a coupler inside the inner primary. This coupler goes in in a particular way. Mark the coupler as to how it came out. The tapered end goes inwards but mark it to make sure. When reinstalling the jackshaft use a new locktab on the small bolt and a drop of Loctite 242 (medium blue) to make sure it doesn't come loose. Torque it to 7-9 foot pounds.

Good Luck
