97 roadking wont go into gear while engine is not running and in neutral, starter just spins

Gears do not seem to be working or bike seems to be in neutral after putting it in 1st gear all the way through to 5th as the bike just free wheels also if you push the starter bike jumps forward whn it is in gear so then it is obvious the gears do work but the starter spins but the engine does not catch and does not fire up, if you push it while its in gear it just freewheels, any ideas as to what might be the cause

The starter clutch needs to be replaced. An alternator sgop will usually rebuild these for 1/2 of a new one. .A thumbs up would be greatly appreciated if this answer is helpful to you. Good Luck.

This is normal, the gears are not lining up with nothing moving / rotating, then when you try to start they move and "lock in". All my HD's are like this. Nothing to worry about.

The bike pulls one it's in gear and I try to start it. when in neutral the starter wines but won't turn over motor


Hi, Anonymous the starter drive/Bendix is a mechanical gear driven component that engages the clutch pack ring gear to turn over the engine. It has an internal mechanism that allows the gear to turn in one direction and once the engine starts allows the drive gear to free spin. If gear free spins in both directions then the drive gear has failed it is not serviceable and needs to be replaced.

Hi Rod, sounds like your starter drive is going south. I'm sorry you can't find the first and very best tool your Road King ever needed, but don't despair for a mere $6.50 you can download another one at the website below:

Power getting to stater but wont crank over


No mention of model...so these are general comments.

First, when you say there is power to the starter, do you mean the actual starter or the starter relay (or starter solenoid). On most Yamahas there is power to the starter solenoid from the battery at all times.....power leaves the relay to the actual starter motor only when the key is on, the interlocks are satisfied and the starter button is pushed.

So if you actually are getting power at the starter motor and no rotation, and the battery is fully charged you have either a starter motor issue or an internal engine/clutch problem. Is the bike physically in neutral ...rear wheel spins? Remove spark plugs and attempt to rotate engine with kick starter if equipped, or access rotor bolt and rotate with socket...if it rotates fine...remove starter motor and inspect,

If the starter relay is not sending power to starter motor....check Kill switch is in ENGINE RUN position, bike is in neutral, and indicated on dash, and retry. If you have no neutral light showing, but it is in neutral, you need to flip the sidestand up...pull in the clutch and retryt....as there is a sidestand switch and a clutch switch that are part of in gear starting interlocks.
No neutral light indication requires testing of the neutral switch aand wiring but tryt to get the bike running first.

Starter works but gears seem to free spin, wont crank engine


sounds like the sprag clutch has failed. If you can see the large gear that sits behind the rotor and its turning but the rotor isnt turning the sprag clutch has failed. Very costly. usualy you would have a missed start eg not engaging every now and then before this fails all together.

It should be 1 down and 5 up. About the 5500rpm at 85... That sounds about right with stock gearing. Let me know if i can help further. Good luck and happy holidays. Jay
