Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLSTF - FLSTFI Fat Boy
Posted by Anonymous on
This may need some testing. If it engages and start to turn the engine over and then pops out it could be a bad solenoid hold in circuit or a weak battery or burned solenoid main contacts. In fact it could also even be poor, corroded battery terminals, ground connection etc.

SOURCE: I changed my starter and
Replace the "Bendix" unit on the starter shaft in the primary. It's basically a one-way bearing designed to lock up when turned one way and to freewheel when turned the other. When the starter turns the "Bendix" it locks up but when the engine starts, the Bendix turns the same way but faster. This make it reverse directions in relationship to the starter shaft. When they go bad, they either don't lock up at all or the "jump out" once started turning the engine over.
Do not use a cheap Bendix replacement (made in China). You'll be back in there again in six months if it lasts that long. I like the Accel units made in the U.S.A. Clamp the shaft in a vise with "soft jaws" on it and take the nut off the end of the shaft. It has left handed threads.
