Intermittily my 08 stree glide starter acks like it dont have enough power to start my bike

Usually, a series of rapid clicks indicates a low battery, or bad connection somewhere.

A bad starter relay gives a single, loud click.

"8trying to order a stock caliper screen for th back brake on my harly davidson street glide" ????? I do not know what a "caliper screen" is. It may be a typing error. Try this site for whatever part you are trying to find. Just choose OEM parts and select your bike, and go to the rear brake.

Good Luck

When i pull my clutch lever in the noise stops, when i let it out i'm getting lots of noise, on my 08 streetglide

Most likely your primary inner bearing is shot. I have 50k on my FLHX 2008...I have gone through two of them. I also have gone through 4, yes four, IDS bearings on the rear pulley.

I have a 2007 street glide that dies at idle when coming to a stop, also back fires when slowing down.

Have the computer re-mapped. I have the same bike with a stage 1 upgrade. The race tuner was bad. Dealer removed it, remapped the stock computer with the stage 1 settings and all has been well since.

2009 Street glide idles poorly, strong gas smell, stalls

The 09 models come with a "parade" mode which causes the rear cyclinder to quit firing when idling in traffic etc to combat over heating. You should be able to kick it on by rolling the throttle grip FORWARD for 5 to 10 seconds. Have you changed the pipes or air filter? If you have and never had the EFI adjusted (either factory download or fuel tuner installed) your bike could be running extra rich causing the over heating and eventual engine destruction. New Harleys run rich from the factory, any changes to the intake/exhaust system without proper fuel injection management will cause overheating. Try getting your bike into parade mode by rolling the throttle forward to the stops for a few seconds, that will cool things down.

Does anyone know how to program the keyless remote for a 2008 harley davidson street glide please help

The HD alarm is REALLY complicated. 10 pages in the manual. I'd have the dealer order you an owner's manual for about $20. If you just can't start the bike, one long push on the remote sets it and 2 quick clicks turn it off.
