That is a voltage issue going to your solenoid. If you own a power probe check the voltage going to and from the solenoid. Also you may have a defective solenoid I have seen new ones out of the box be defective so keep that in mind

With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness

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: starter removal on 2004 ultra classic harley davidson

Disconnect battery , remove the outer primary case, pull back the lock tab on the starter jackshaft, unbolt the retainer screw, then remove the two starter bolts from the right side, sometimes you need to loosen the oil tank mounts to get at these, slip the starter and coupler out as a unit, replace the coupler and jackshaft the same way they came out when the new starter goes in, install bolts , retighten the jackshaft bolt and bend over the retainer, install and fill primary case, connect battery thats it buddy

SOURCE: 2004 Harley Heritage starter problem

If your starter is clicking, not the starter relay, but the engine will not turn over, it may be time to replace the contacts in the solenoid of your starter.

On the right side of the bike, look at the starter and locate a pentagon (5-sided) plate on the end. This is the solenoid, the round part below that is the starter motor. Now, remove the three small screws that hold this plate on. There will be a spring and a plunger under this plate. Pull the plunger straight out of the solenoid.

On the plunger, you'll see a large round copper washer. In the solenoid, you'll see two large copper contacts. They will all have some scorched areas on them but should not be burned down to about half their orignal thickness. If they are, time to order a "rebuild kit" for you starter and install it.

The kit will come with directions. Just make sure you disconnect the battery before starting that job.

I have a 2000 flh that i turn to fuel up and then it wouldn't start. It has power to instrument panel and brake light,it will not even crank

Hi, Sam and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, fuse, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

I have a 1977 FLH, I replaced the pinion gear that engages the flywheel. now when i try to start it, the pinion gear engages the flywheel but the starter doe not engage. What could be the problem?

Test the large connections on the starter solenoid, if they are BOTH hot, during starter engaugement, you may have a starter issue. IF they are NOT hot during engaugement, there is another solenoid under the battery case (usually). Solenoids get carbon buildups and eventually start to not transmit power intermittantly.

How do I disarm my security system so that I can install a new battery on my 07 flh?

If you put a 12 volt source from the Starter Solenoid Positive and Chassis Ground Negative, you can change the battery without interupting the supply.
Saves an awfull lot of time!
Hope this helps.

Starter spinning (not engaging) 50% of time

Sometimes they have to have little shims on them so they mesh correctly when they engage.
