Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
My 2010 Harley Davidson Street Bob won't start. I have checked the battery and it rates at 12volts however when I attempt the electric start I get no audible clicking. Is this a starter cylanoid gone faulty?

If your starter is spinning but the engine is not turning over, you over running clutch or Bendix is bad. On the Nippondenso style starter on the late bikes, this starter clutch is inside of the starter. You must pull the starter off and disassemble it to repair the starter. If you can do the job yourself, you can repair the starter and save some money. If you're going to have to pay a mechanic to do the work, simply replace the starter. Any money saved by repairing the starter in this case would be quickly depleted in labor cost.

SOURCE: bike won't start, new Harley
I'm not too familiar with the later model bikes but if I were getting a clicking noise under the seat and the bike was not starting, I'd investigate the source of the noise. It's possible that it is a starter relay that engages the solenoid that is an integral part of the starter. Look at the starter from the right hand side of your bike. You'll see a single small wire that connects to the end of the starter just above the end plate of the solenoid. Disconnect this wire and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn on your ignition switch and press the start button. You should hear the click under the seat and see voltage at the end of that wire. If not, replace the relay, a plastic cube about an inch in dimension.

Put it in neutral and pull the clutch in. Kickstand up and Killswitch in
the normal position. Turning the key off and back on will reset the FI
Light. Make sure that battery is fully charged first. Low voltage might
not fire the injectors. Let us know how it goes.
Heck, toggle that killswitch a half dozen times.
