Possible reasons:

Bad starter relay
Bad solenoid

Was the right handlebar switch housing opened before this started?
The starter button wire might have been pinched when reassembling, and it finally wore the insulation to the point where now it's grounding out.

The starter switch itself could have gone bad.

SOURCE: Dose anyone know if they had starter problems with

is it turning over and just not starting. If so try cleaning your carbs, more importantly, pull your jets and give them a good cleaning. If your running gas with ethenol, over a relatively short time it will clog your jets up

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.

Good Luck
Steve

2010 street glide connections and battery ok but will not do anything when you hit start button?


Check that the starter solenoid is working, that would be the most common problem if the battery has been tested and passes.

Replace starter how on 2008 street glide


It should be pretty similar to the procedure I used on a 2006 1200 Sportster:
  1. Take off the seat
  2. Take out the battery
  3. Take out the battery case
  4. Remove all the dirt from the starter and around the starter. Compressed air works pretty well for this.
  5. Take the battery wire off the starter solenoid (attached to the starter)
  6. Take the starter switch wire off the starter solenoid
  7. Find your magnetic pick up tool
  8. Loosen the two bolts that hold the starter
  9. Take the two bolts out with the pick up tool real close to the bolts. At this point a dropped washer is going to be real hard to find and retrieve.
  10. Lift the starter out
Replacement is the reverse

I have a 2006 street glide, I can start it by grounding out the starter, new battery,new relays, new fuse. It makes a click at the relay when I push the starter button any ideas? Getting frustrated


What would you ground out on the starter?? Are you saying that the ground is poor and so you run a cable or such from the starter case to a known good ground and then it operates OR are you saying that you bypass the starter circuit and provide power directly to the starter and if so where do you supply it, to the battery terminal on the solenoid or to the starter side post of the solenoid.
New stuff does not matter unless it works. Do you hear the starter relay click when you hit the starter button and/or do you hear the solenoid click. If you hear the solenoid click you know everything up to that point is good. Then you have to determine if the solenoid contacts are getting current through to the starter windings. If you can spin up the starter by shorting directly to the starter side of the solenoid and the solenoid is clicking not rattling then the solenoid internal contacts are bad. If the solenoid just rattles the battery is weak or there is resistance stopping adequate voltage and current from getting to it.

Rebuilding the solenoid. Is it difficult?


The only thing you can do to the solenoid on the newer bikes (1989 and later) is to replace the large copper contacts inside the solenoid. Usually you can do this without taking the starter off on most models. Disconnect the negative battery cable and take the three small 3mm bolts out of the back of the starter. Remove the plate. Behind the plate is a plunger and a spring. Take these out. Look into the starter solenoid and you can see the two large copper contacts. You'll have to take the nuts of the battery cables on the start that come from the battery and to the start motor. They are 14mm nuts (Japanese made starter). If you can get to those without taking the exhaust off, it's easy to replace the contacts. If you can't get to it because of the exhaust system or something else, it could be a pretty good job.
