Indian Starter Problem

Sorry if Harley owners get offended but Indian wasn't an option. 2001 Indian Scout 88 S&S - Cut out on me at I stop light now starter will not crank at all... all I get is the sound of the relay clicking. Lights are still bright, all signals/horn work. The relay should still be good right? I can't seem to find the solenoid in any of the manuals to test it. Is there a stand alone solenoid? I'm guessing the starter is just shot and needs replacement/rebuild. Am I right?

The mechanic should check the starter solenoid . The solenoid is the one that control the starter to function . If the starter is stuck there for you should check if the starter is worn out or destroyed.If it is worn out or destroyed there for you should replace it a brand new one. In some motor cycles there are some that have a stand alone solenoid .Separated solenoid to the starter but still the solenoid is one with the starter .The solenoid is connected to the starter by means of the wires or wire connection .You can find it easy because it is place very near to the starter . While some is like the car the solenoid is connected or placed on the top of the starter.That's why it is very easy to find.

How to remove starter on indian scout 2003


I'm sorry but I cannot answer your question. I don't have any knowledge of the Indian engine nor do I have any mechanical drawings of the engine. If it was one of the earlier models that used an S&S engine, I could probably help but I seem to think that model is equipped with an Indian engine. There may be an Indian Forum on the Internet where you may find some help. There's probably more than one. Some are more useful than others. You may wind up having to purchase a service manual to find out how remove your starter. Sorry.

Good Luck

I had my 2001 Fatboy running 2 weeks ago, went to start it today - no power (lights accessories, anything) put the battery charger on it & still nothing - checked all the fuses & all were good -...


The power from your battery goes fromt the positive post of the battery directly to the starter. At the starter, there should be two connections. The large battery cable and a smaller red wire. This red wire is "hot' wire to all the "accessories" on your bike. The wire runs straight from there to the ignition switch. If you don't have power to the main switch, you have a main fuse blown somewhere. You'll need a schematic to trace the wiring out from there. I'm sorry but I don't have a schematic for that model bike. Make sure all your connections are clean and tight and your "Run/Stop" switch in the in the proper position.

2001 HD Dyna FXDP complete electrical shutdown... battery hot, fuel guage & light hot, ignition hot, starter hot... won't turn over, no accessory lights in general. HELP!


Let's see what we have here,
Battery is hot
fuel gauge and light hot
Ignition hot
starter hot
What we don't have
no accessory lights and the starter won't turn the engine over.

I'm sorry but I don't have a schematic for your bike to refer to but usually Harley puts instruments, lights, ignition, and accessories on separate fuses or breakers. Sounds like you've blown the accessories fuse as I think this one controls power to the starter relay. I think your fuses are behind the electrical panel on the left side of the bike.
