The way them starters work is it is either engaged by a silonoid or a reverse plastic gear so when the starter is energized the gear comes up so. In other words u can buy a new starter or take it to a shop and have them rebuild it. If it is the plastic gear kind u can geta new gear for it
yes you can if you have some knowledge .
disconnect battery making sure you have radio codes before disconecting
take picture of wiring with camera phone if possible on starter or mark position and write down
mark starter position that is starter to housing to facilite installation of new starter
remove bolts from starter normally 2 or 3 bolts holding it in position
remove and fit in reverse order
Push the starter button if your hear the solenoid clicking the starter button is good. If there is no click from the solenoid you may need to clean or replace the starter button.Follow the positive battery cable to the starter solenoid. Jump across the two cable terminals, this should activate the starter.If the starter works now you have burnt contacts inside the solenoid. replace the solenoid. If the starter does not turn over, try again tapping on the starter with a plastic hammer if the starter works now you need starter brushes. If the starter will not turn over with direct power (bench test) and the brushes are good the armature is probably shorted. You will have to replace the starter as an assembly parts are not available to rebuild the starter.
Well, there is a starter relay which is a 1 inch plastic cube like thing and then there is the starter solenoid that is actually part of the Nippondenso type starter. The starter relay will make a click but it is very faint. It is easily replaced as it just plugs into a socket.
The starter solenoid is a bit different in that it makes a loud click when you press the start button. If it's doing this and you're positive that your battery and the connections are good, you can rebuild it. Remove the 5-sided plate on the end of the solenoid. Inside you'll find a plunger and a long small diameter spring. Remove the plunger. Inside the solenoid you'll see two large copper contacts. If they're badly burned, the copper "washer" on the plunger will not make contact and start the starter motor. Harley and aftermarket parts manufacturers offer a "rebuild kit" for repairing this problem. Simply replace the contacts. On most bikes you don't even have to take the starter off to do the job.
I can tell you how to remove the starter, and it is rebuildable, but it doesnt SOUND like a bad starter. THE FIRST thing I would do is check all the battery cable connections. Loosen and retighten them and see if that helps.
gently pry the plastic from the inside working from the hinges to the corner. you will need to put something in place of the screwdriver when you pull it out to go to the next pry position (about every 2 inches. i use apex bits. you can use anything about the diameter of a cigarette. then the screws for the handle will be exposed . it all snaps back together.
