Question about 2009 Harley Davidson FLHR Road King
Posted by Anonymous on
Likely if the battery is in fact good that it is the large contactor in the solenoid cap.

Dog gone, sure is a lot of this lately. Seems every other question is this same problem. LOL
Ok, look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You should see a five sided plate held on with three screws unless it has some kind of chrome cover on it. Just above this cover, there is a single wire connected to the starter. Unplug this wire and connect it to a test light or volt meter. Turn on the switch and press the start button. If the light lights up or your meter shows battery voltage, the problem is in your starter. If the light does not light up or the meter shows no voltage, replace the starter relay.
If the light does show voltage, remove the three screws that hold the five sided end plate onto the solenoid. There's a plunger and spring behind the plate. Take these parts out. Look into the solenoid and examine the large copper contacts in the solenoid. If they're burned badly, you can replace them. A kit is available for the starter solenoid that includes new contacts and a new plunger.

SOURCE: bike won't start, new Harley
I'm not too familiar with the later model bikes but if I were getting a clicking noise under the seat and the bike was not starting, I'd investigate the source of the noise. It's possible that it is a starter relay that engages the solenoid that is an integral part of the starter. Look at the starter from the right hand side of your bike. You'll see a single small wire that connects to the end of the starter just above the end plate of the solenoid. Disconnect this wire and connect a test light or volt meter to the wire. Turn on your ignition switch and press the start button. You should hear the click under the seat and see voltage at the end of that wire. If not, replace the relay, a plastic cube about an inch in dimension.

Check the tightness of the battery cables and the starter relay.
