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.

SOURCE: starter motor problem solenoid is throwing starter

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.

Good Luck
Steve

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Gilera Runner 180FXR, New bat 12V 9 amps. Starter turns and spins pinion gear but won't engage starter ring. If it does it turns ver slow or won't turn engine over. In manual it

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.

Starter fuse location and strater relay


In most newer cars the starter fuse is a fusible link or in a fuse panel under the hood. Fusible links are often difficult to find because they look like a barely noticeable bump in the wire. The starter relay/solenoid is typically an assembly that is part of the starter motor.

1977 sportster wont turn over


Hi MaryRose, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections check negative cable at both ends. (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to on.
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.

engine light may mean change or add oil or airfilter is dirty.make sure all hoses are still hooked up.The pause befor starting could be the battery but is more likely the start relay solenoid or the starter brushes are worn and may need cleaning or replacing.the brushes wear out and leave their dust in the starter causing the resistance in the starter to get higher over time.(slow to start spinning,and acts like battery is weak.)

Engine wont turn ovwer


Check battery terminals are clean and firmly connected.

Check the transmission neutral interlock switch operation is OK.
Check +12V is appearing on the starter solenoid control wire when the ignition switch is held in the 'start' position.

If above ok, apply +12v directly to the starter solenoid activation control -starter should immediately engage.
If it doesn't run, you likely have a faulty starter motor.

1977 ford f 100 solenode mounted on starter


so did this problem just happen or did you do some wiring repairs??. on a 1977 the only solenoid should be the fender. I dont have a wiring diagram that old. if it just happened there is a small wire on the solenoid on the fender, unhook this wire, and see if it happens again. if the starter does not engage then you may have a ign switch problem, if it still engages then the solenoid is bad.

Stater won`t stop


The starter circuit is completing somewhere. Have a look at your start button and/or solenoid. It could be mucky contacts, if so give them a clean.
