Question about Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Trouble like this is usually caused by a welded or shorted starter solenoid.
You could test solenoid with a multi meter on an ohms setting. with it removed from the bike it should read infinity (or not do anything). the switch should be open (not making contact) when not commanded by the start button. test it across the 2 large posts.
if it has continunity (if the numbers change on the meter) it is stuck.
solenoid is usually close to the battery. under side cover or seat. it looks like a small metal tube salt shaker size with 4 wires.
2 for starter and 2 for button/switch

SOURCE: brake light stays on
hand break switch was broken (inside the wire housing) not allowing the hand break lever to deactive, therefore causing the brake system to stay on.

you need to remove the starter and bench test it. Once you get the starter off you can hook the ground of a jumper cable to the starter and then touch the positive to the postitve post and you may need to jump to the solenoid

probably find that the dog clutch on the end of the starter has given up the ghost,failing that,bmws are critical on the grade of oil used and if you have used a mineral rather than synthetic oil the dog clutch will be gummed up with deposits,sometimes a hot engine flush and new oil(synthetic)will fix it,hope this helps

I'd be willing to bet that it's not "kicking out". The tale tell sign is that the starter keeps running. As long as the plunger in the solenoid is pulled inward,which moves the starter drive into engagement with the ring gear on the outer clutch drum, the start will run. If the starter drive were being "kicked out" the solenoid wouldn't still be engaged and the starter would not continue running.
I would come closer to thinking that your starter drive is bad, the bendix. These things are notorious for going bad, especially the cheap Chinese made aftermarket ones. I've replaced them with only a few weeks use on them. If you buy a new drive, get an Accel, made in the U.S.A.. Simply pull the starter drive out and clamp the shaft in a vice with aluminum jaws on it. The little nut on the end has left handed threads. When you put the nut back on, put some Red Loctite #271 on it. This ought to solve your problem. If you have anymore questions, drop me a line directly at email@example.com Good Luck!
