Check your battery connections and make sure they are tight where the positive cable attatches to the starter and the negative cable attatches to ground. Sportsters are notorius for this type of problem when the cables are loose.

Relay switch start


Hi Ahsanmsa, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at "BOTH" ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay check it for continuity and/or swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay temporarily, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay. Good luck and have nice day.

When I hit the ignition switch on my 2009 xl883c, one of the relays will click, but the engine does not turn. Sometimes it starts immediately, sometimes it will take 50 clicks of the start button, and...


It sounds like a bad relay or solenoid on the starter. Look on the end of the starter and you'll see a single small wire plugged onto the end of the starter. Pull this wire off and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn the ignition switch on and press the button. The test light should light up or a meter should show battery voltage every time you press the button. Press the button a dozen or so times. If the light does NOT light up or no voltage, replace the relay that is clicking when you press the button. If the test light DOES light up or you do see voltage, it's the solenoid on the starter. If you don't have a test light or meter, simply replace the relay that you feel clicking and try that. I hate to tell people to "parts swap" as that's not being a mechanic but I'm pretty sure that you just want to get the bike back going as quickly as possible. It's up to you if you want to gamble and simply replace the relay.

Good Luck
Steve

Harley sportster 2001 starter removal ,it just clicks


You must have a fully charged battery.If you are just getting a click your battery proably doesn't have enough voltage to energize the starter relay.Check the battery voltage and if that is good 12.6 volts or more do a voltage drop test to the switch circuit( battery pos. to relay terminal 86) with switch on and starter button pushed the meter should read 1.0 vdc max if that is good black meter lead to relay terminal of solenoid again read voltage then engergize the system with only 1.0 vdc drop good luck
