The starter on your bike uses a solenoid that also manually engages the starter gear. Try lubricating the solenoid mechanism and verify that the mechanism does not bind or stick. Once you have the mechanism freed up, check the starter again. If it does not engage, replace the solenoid (or, while you're at it, just replace the entire starter assembly).

SOURCE: how to change oil in 2003 HD FXD Dyna Super Glide

remove the drain plug from the oil pan, you will need either a 3/4" box wrench or a 5/8" box wrench and the drain plug will be facing forward on the the oil pan. It is easiest to remove this drain plug from under the right side of the bike. put drain plug back in after about 10 m,inutes of drain time and tighten to 18 ft. lbs. Dont forget to change the oil filter as well.

Is the clutch cable adjusted correctly, you may need to adjust the cable so that the clutch is released more fully, there will be an adjuster on either end of the clutch cable - adjust it so that the cable is tighter - but there should be a little bit of play left in the clutch - if this does not cure the problem you could have some gearbox damage,
The bike is still under warranty so take it to a harley dealers and have them look at it.

Yep, not enough amps to engage the starter clutch, and when ti does engage, not enough amps to turn the engine. You need a 12 amp battery.

What would make a 2001 Harley Davidson Wide Glide starter spin when trying to start ?


Hello,

If the starter is just spinning, and not engaging, it would be the starter soloniod causing your problem. They are easy to rebuild. Most of the time, you can simply disassemble the solonoid, clean it and put it back together - while you have it apart be sure to check that the spring is good.

Changed primary cover on 2000 dyna super glide fxdx now the starter wont engage at times battery is good? cover is not oe


You'll have to take the cover back off and look very carefully at the inside in the starter area to see where it is hitting when it engages, and then use a grinder to relieve the area in the primary cover where it's hitting. Several test fits and removals may be necessary seeing as it is not OE.
It's probably just hitting enough to stop engagement of the teeth, or bind the starter. Other wise it would not work at all. Check to make sure primary is tighten in sequence properly. Take your time, relax, have a beer and look at the job as a learning experience.

1988 electra glide starter just spins and will not turn over motor sounds like it is binding oe nor engaging?


Hi Shawneeoutpo, it sounds the like starter drive/clutch has gone south, it has components inside, that when spinning, centrifugal forces cause them to grab or lock into permanently fixed counterparts. The gear only spins one way and locks the other way. If you have one that spins both ways it makes a noise like the starter is just spinning, it has failed and needs to be replaced.
