Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide
Battery is good, starter clicks loud but will not turn flywheel to fire engine.
Sounds like starter solenoid has packed it in or starter terminals are loose or dirty

Try to start the motorcycle first by using jumper cables attatched to your car battery and if it starts your battery is toast. next check solinoid contacts clean the carbon off. is pinion gear engaging into ring gear fully. you can pull off primary cover to check after you drain the primary oil . check the starter allen bolts to inner primary cover for tightness, check ground strap for good clean tight connections. starter jack shaft bolt is only 5 foot lbs at the most if it is to tight its chamfered edge will not allow it to align itself to engage ring gear.

Starter noise during cranking and after the engine fires is often a result of too much or tool little distance between the starter pinion gear and the flywheel. A high pitched whine during cranking (before the engine fires) can be caused by the pinion and flywheel being too far apart. Likewise, a whine after the engine starts (as the key is released) is often a result of the pinion-flywheel relationship being too close. In both cases flywheel damage can occur. Shims are available in various sizes to properly adjust the starter on its mount. In order to check and adjust the shims, you will also need a flywheel turning tool, available at most auto parts stores.
If your vehicle's starter emits the type of noise previously described, follow the shimming procedure below:
