Clean and tighten the battery terminals! Spark at the battery terminal indicates a loose connection.

First thing, pull the negative wire off the battery terminal.

Unplug the wires at the starter, noting their location(s).
Drawings or photos will help.

Drain primary and remove outer cover.
Remove bolt on end of starter gear, and remove starter gear, spring,spacer, etc.

Unbolt starter(two bolts) and remove starter.

Starter continually clicks when starting on my 2002 harley


Hi, Ray love that last name take away the MC and we could be kin, it should be noted that in order to "PROPERLY" diagnosis any electric starter issue it is "IMPERATIVE" that you begin with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test, and the usual suspects are:
1. Battery terminals have loose or corroded connections.
2. Battery cables faulty due corroded or broken internal wiring at the cable connector especially the "NEGATIVE" cable which needs to be checked at "BOTH" ends.
3. Battery voltage, must be 12.5 volts or better, voltage from the battery to the main circuit breaker to the ignition switch to the security/ignition fuse to the TSM/TSSM module to the engine stop/run switch to the starter button to the starter relay to the green wire that connects to the starter solenoid can not drop more than 1/2 volt of battery voltage.
4. With a voltmeter connected to the battery, the ignition switch in the on position, the kill switch in the run position, the starter button depressed, starter engagement should not bring voltage below 8-9 volts.
If a lower voltage is produced a proper battery load test should be performed with a load tester to validate battery integrity or battery replacement.
5. Faulty starter relay, check continuity.
6. Faulty starter solenoid, check contact plate and shoes for excessive electrical erosion/etching, refurbish as necessary or invert contact plate and use the virgin backside. Check contact shoes for being loose. Replace solenoid if the negative function is still a final outcome.
7. Faulty starter, bench test starter with a 12-volt battery if negative function check, decontaminate and undercut armature commutator segments as necessary, check segments with an ohmmeter probe each one and the segment next to it for shorts. Have the armature tested with a growler and field coils, and brush plate with an ohm-meter for opens, shorts or grounds. Replace brushes if less than .438" It is generally cheaper to overhaul/refurbish a starter motor than buying a new one.

After the Bike sits for a few days , sometimes overnight, when you hit the starter button it just clicks. Keep hitting it and finally the starter ingages and the bike starts. I have checked all of the...


The large copper contacts in your starter's solenoid may need replacing. Look at the end of the starter and you'll see a 5-sided plate held on by three small screws. Use a 3mm allen wrench to remove the screws and the plate. Inside you'll find a plunger and a long spring. Remove the plunger and spring. Look inside of the solenoid and you'll see two large copper contacts. If they're badly burned, you might need to replace them. You can get them through a Harley dealer or from aftermarket suppliers. They are not difficult to replace and most of the time it can be done without removing the starter from the engine. Just disconnect the negative battery cable before you do this. The nuts that hold the contacts in are 14mm.

Good Luck

When hitting the starter button it sparks at negative terminal


Okay first thing to do is stop trying this! check the battery connections make sure they are tight. Next dry the bike I do mean dry it with like a leaf blower or something, let it bake in the sun. You may have gotten water between any number of electrical connectors, so trying to tell you which one(s) to check would be just frustrating for you. Still check them all! If you used a pressure wash of any kind we could be in a little deeper mess. In the future only use low pressure water to wash and rinse the bike. Mr Clean makes this pretty cool "spotless" wash product, it works for me.
One last thing if you still have no luck remove the console from the tank and check you main switch there for moisture. Over time the "grease" in the main dries out and contacts corode. Gently disconnect the main (the heavy gauge wires) from the switch, and again gently blow dry the connector and switch.
If you think you need to replace the switch, take your key code and about $105 and go down to your Harley dealer and order one. Hope this helps,

JP

Battery not charging 2000 flht/regulator or stater how do i test?


unhook the nefative cable from the battery and start the bike by using another battery and then unhook the starting battery. Put a volt meter from the negative cable and then to the negative side of the battery. It should show around 14 volts if charging system is working ok.

I know this sounds crazy and the only reason I am giving this as a solution is because it happened to me. Even though the electrical system has enough power to turn the engine, it does not have enough power to turn the engine and power to spark. Correct any poor connections at the battery terminals, etc. Try jump starting the bike. If it works, you know the problem is a weak battery and/or a poor connection.
