Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
Engine newly rebuilt and starts well with kickstarter.
Posted by Anonymous on
If all those parts are new take it back where the work was done and ask for an answer there. Could be a problem with the jackshaft and alignment etc.

From what you're describing, I would say that the "over running clutch" or starter clutch is bad in your starter. The part cost about $125 or so and can be replaced by disassembling your starter.
Now, if you have the ability to remove the starter, disassemble it, and get it back on your bike, you can save some money. But, it you're going to have to pay someone to do it, you'd probably be better off to just purchase a new starter. The reason is the labor time involved in the disassembly of the starter and repairing it is so much longer than simply replacing the starter.
If you're going to have someone else do the job, ask them to price it out both ways, with a new starter and rebuilding yours.

Testimonial: "Thanks Steve for your advice, I shall probably just replace the starter with a better one."
Yep, not enough amps to engage the starter clutch, and when ti does engage, not enough amps to turn the engine. You need a 12 amp battery.
