If I understand that when you turn your switch to the "on" position, the engine starts up? If so, your starter is hung up and this isn't good. This means your starter is running all the time and that is not conducive for long starter life.

If the bike is still under warranty, take it to a dealer immediately. If not, there are several things that could be causing this problem.

You'll need either a test light or a digital volt ohm meter to test where the problem is. Look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You'll see a plate shaped roughly like a pentagon (five sided) on the end with a single wire connector just above it. Unplug the connector. Insert the test light or the red probe of your meter into the wire end of the connector, not the starter part of the connector. Connect the wire from the test light or the black probe of the meter to a good ground. If using a meter, put the meter in DC voltage, 20 volt or higher range. Now, turn your switch on.

If the starter engages and starts the engine, your problem is a mechanical problem with the starter itself. If the does not engage but your test light or DVOM shows voltage on the wire, you have an electrical problem in the starter circuit. In this latter case, I'd suspect a bad starter relay. Once you determine where the problem is, repost and we can go from there.

Good Luck
Steve

4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to on.

09 street bob shutting down 1 cylinder


Change the spark plugs.

If it still happens, it sounds as if you are not getting spark once the ignition heats up. That will mean replacing the defective ignition parts.

I sure hope the spark plugs fix it.

Use loctite anti seize on the threads and torque the plugs to 15 lbs.

2009 HARLEY DAVIDSON STREET BOB WILL NOT START. I JUST PUT IN A NEW BATTERY TODAY. I HAVE LIGHTS AND CAN HEAR THE FUEL PUMP KICK IN BUT NOTHING WHEN I HIT THE STARTER


If the battery cables were not thoroughly clean they might offer enough resistance to prevent the starter from spinning. That happened to me. I was on the road far from home. I had lights but it won't spin the starter. In fact it was so bad, the lights went off when I hit the starter.

I pulled the seat, removed the cables, scraped them clean with my jackknife, replaced the battery cables and it started right up.

Before you tear into it, double check the kill switch on the right handle grip. next to the start button there is a run switch. Be sure that is pushed down to the run position.

I have power when I turn my bike on but theres nothing when I hit the start button. I did have an after market alarm on there but I took it off as I don't think my ex installed it properly and I was...


check the engine kill switch, a lot of riders are using this to switch engine off before they turn ignition off and this should not be done. the kill switch is for emergency only and not built for constant ,regular use they fail easily and prevent engine starting.
