It sounds like you may have a bad "Starter Clutch." This is not cheap to replace, so I hope I'm wrong. B)

Starter won't dis-engage after starting engine

Hi Gary:
Sounds like you're getting good at re & re on that starter!
There could be 3 reasons that I can think of:
1) The bendix gear is binding on the ring gear so it can't retract.
2) The bendix is gummed up so that it is sticking when it is activated. Clean it up and then try a bench test to see if it is sticking.
3) The solenoid is staying triggered once the engine starts. Check this by not connecting the solenoid activation wire. Just jump the terminals to start it, then see what happens.
SAFETY, SAFETY, SAFETY! You're messing with parts that can bite , especially when you bench test the starter. Clamp it in a vise or workmate.

Starter stay on without pushing button

It sounds as if the starter solenoid is stuck or siezed keeping the starter's gear in contact with the flywheel. The starter solenoid needs to be repaired soon or the starer motor will be damaged.

What can happen if the starter drive is not removed from the start?

If the starter drive is not removed from the start the engine will tent to drive the gear placing stress on the gear which will eventually wear off the gear.

Bike won't start, headlights and gauges light, hear a click coming from under the bearpaw, battery is new today from dealer

If you're hearing a clicking from the engine casing after changing the battery and the bike still won't start, chances are there may be a problem with your starter motor.

Either it's not contacting well enough to the battery (Faulty Wiring or Loose Connection), may be having trouble engaging/dis-engaging the starter gear, or it's just cactus and needs repair/replacing.

If you haven't tried push starting the bike, I'd suggest trying that first. Sometimes that can dis-lodge the starter gear if it's stuck, but it might require maintenance to ensure it doesn't happen again.

If you're un-aware of how to perform a rolling start, put the bike on a downward slope, or get a friend who can help push. Put the bike in first gear with the clutch in, and the ignition 'on' and roll the bike forward to a bit more than a brisk walking pace. Lift your weight from the seat and drop it down again quickly. As you drop down, release the clutch to engage first gear and hopefully the bike should spring into life. (Beware not to hold the throttle open, or stop moving too quickly, as this can cause an the bike to spring forwards or dropping of the bike as it stops suddenly)

If this fails, you may need to have the Started Motor removed to be looked at, as it may need replacing or repair by a professional.

Hope that helps!

F 150 starts and starter stays engaged unplug alternator starts ok but no charge

2 problems, first you have bad starter or starter relay for starter staying engaged, keep alt plugged in has nothing to do with starter staying engauged, to test starter relay, jump at relay bat + post with red/bk wire on solonoid, if cranks over without staying engaged, then not relay or starter but rather in your ign switch, ford had bad problems with ign switch some years ago doing that
