Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.
7. Security alarm not disarming
For a prime suspect please visit website below and good Luck.

Ignition fuse location 94 sportster

It's more likely that your battery terminals are dirty or have become loose. Clean and check your battery terminals. If I recall correctly (I had a 1993 Sportster as well years ago), I had that happen a few times. Best of luck to you!

Starter just whines when i hit the start button on my xl1200c 2004

Hi Wendywendy99, 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 has failed and needs to be replaced. Please visit the web site below for more help and good luck.

I have an 06 1200 sportster.Carborated.When it gets up to temp of

800 rpm is to low for a sportster , it will cause oiling problems. (lack of). 975rpm @ 1175 are the ideal settings.also look for manifold air leak. spray wd 40 around all inlet manifold connection areas, if engine hesitates you may have a leak.
