Starter solenoid 2004 FLH Harley
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

SOURCE: Won't start?
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

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.

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

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. email@example.com
