Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
Battery is full charge starts to turn over then just clicks I believe it is a relay but not sure which one is the right one
Posted by Anonymous on
Could be a relay, but it sounds more like an internal short in the battery or bad solinoid

SOURCE: Won't start?
With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness

Ok, the first thing to do it take your battery to an auto parts store and ask them to "load test" the battery. Just because you charged it doesn't mean it's any good. Especially if the battery seemed to come up to full charge very quickly.
If the battery test good and all you're getting is a click out of the starter, first check all your connections to make double sure they are clean and tight. If they are, there is a five sided plate on the end of the starter's solenoid on the right side of the bike. It has three small bolts that holds it on. Remove the bolts and remove the plate. Remove the large plunger and spring. Inside, you'll see two large copper contacts. One or both of these contacts are probably pretty well burned down. One will have an "arched" looking area in it. This is where the large washer on the plunger has made repeated contacts and has burned the contact down. It is NOT supposed to be there. The copper contacts should be smooth.
You can purchase a "rebuild" kit to replace these two contacts and the plunger. Much less expensive than purchasing a starter and much less work.
