Replace starter...still does not engage motor

The one way clutch inside the motor is slipping. On the back side flywheel is a one way clutch that grabs the starter gear when the starter motor spins. It is designed to let go of the gear once the motor fires up. If the mating surface of the one way clutch and the starter gear becomes rough or chattered, it will no longer grab and turn the motor over. To repair this you will have to take off the crankcase cover and pull off the fly wheel to replace the one way clutch and the starter gear.

When I press the start button the starter turns but the gear does not engage. Battery is fine.

The gear is probably engaging the ring gear but it isn't turning the engine over. The "over running clutch" or "starter clutch" inside the starter is probably bad. You can replace just this part and it's cheaper than buying a new starter. But, only if you can do the work yourself. If you have to pay someone to do the job, the additional time required to disassemble and replace the clutch in starter will quickly eat up any savings you might have realized. If you're going to have to pay someone to do the work, just replace the entire starter. But, you can talk to the mechanic about this and see what the difference in price would be. Part number 252 but they list a starter clutch kit or something.

Good luck

How hard to remove starter clutch?

Well, to replace the starter clutch, first you must take the starter off the engine. On your Softail this means draining the primary, removing the primary cover, and taking the starter jackshaft out. Then, on the right side of the bike, you're going to have to remove at least part if not all of your exhaust system to gain access to the starter. You'll have to loosen the bolts that holds the oil tank in allowing you to lift the tank just enough to get to the rear bolt that holds the starter in. Remove the two large socket head bolts that holds the starter in and remove the starter. Now that you've got the starter out, you'll have to disassemble the drive unit on the starter to get the starter clutch out. This is not that difficult. Depending on what starter clutch replacement you purchase, you may have to swap the bearings from you old unit to the new unit. If you can do this job yourself, you can save some money by replacing just the starter clutch. However, if you are going to have to pay someone to do the work for you, you'd probably be better off just replacing the entire starter. The reason is that the additional labor time charges to disassemble the starter and replace just the clutch will elleviate any savings you might have realized by repairing the starter. Go to and look up the starter for your bike. It will show an "exploded" view of the unit.

Good Luck

The starter on my 1994 heritage softail classic is spinning but only grabs half the time. i believe this to be a jack shaft problem?? i cant remember if you have to remove the clutch and primary to replace...

If you remove the starter motor and solenoid. Lubricate the solenoid and dog wheel and reassemble. That should fix your problem. Reinstalling the solenois, can sometimes be a bit fiddly. Take notice when removing it and where any shimms etc go!

Some times when i try to start my bike. it will turn and not engage, i'll do it two or three times before it engages and starts

You may have a problem with the "over running" clutch in your starter. The way your starter works, the jackshaft must be fully extended and engaged with the ring gear on the outer clutch basket before the starter motor turns over. If the starter motor spins and the engine does not turn, it's the starter clutch (over running) clutch that is bad.

You can replace the clutch if you have the know how and tools and save some money. If you can't do the work yourself, you're better off replacing the entire starter. The labor time to disassemble, replace the clutch, and reassemble the starter will eat up any savings recognized from do it this way instead of simply replacing the starter. The labor time for the job will almost double but you can price it out to see which way is better.

Good Luck

Starter grinding

It could be any number of things but the most likely in my opinion is that you have a bad "over running clutch" or "starter clutch" in your bike. You didn't tell me what year model bike you have but the header of this post says you have a 2000 FLSTC Heritage.

The starter clutch can be replaced and you can save some money if you can do your own work. If not, the cost of repairing your starter and simply replacing the starter is about the same due to the added labor time required to take yours apart and replace the bad part. The starter clutch cost about $120 US. Once you get the starter off, there is about another hour labor to replace the clutch.

Good luck

Assy of starter clutch on 2003 Harley Davidson

The starter on a late model Harley is a typical Nippondenso gear reduction type starter. They are all basically the same except for size.
To replace the starter clutch inside the starter assembly requires disassembly of the starter assembly.

I you will contact me directly, I will scan the procedure and drawings out of a service manual for you.
