What are the symtoms of a bad starter clutch

There is a bendix gear in the starter which is pushed out to the flywheel when the starter button is pushed. If you hear the starter spinning but the starter is not turning the engine over, the bendix gear is stuck. Rebuild the starter. If you do not hear the starter spinning, you have a wiring problem.

Bike would not start.

If you are hearing the clicking sound that means that your starter motor's relay is trying to engage. Probably you don't have enough juice in your battery. Charge your battery very good and give it a try again.If still nothing happens then you must take out the starter motor and have it repaired. That spinning sound also suggests to take a closer look to your starter motor and your starter clutch which is located behind the stator's rotor.

I have a 1987 softail custom that I have been putting alot of money in to try to fix all the problems. I have had starter problems for the past year and finally got sick of it. Harley told me to put...

Did you do anything to change the ignition timing? I know of people that would set their cars ignition timimg by ear. Some of these people must have been deaf because they would have the timing so far off the motor would turn over like it had a weak battery.
And when bikes had distributors they had a lever that worked a cable to turn the distributor so the person could kick start their bike.

Have you removed the spark plugs to see how the starter spins the motor without the plugs? Try it with the plugs out to see how it turns over freely and try it with the plugs in and wires off to see how it spins with no spark but only compression.

Bike wont start. battery charge up ,push starter button all i hear is a clicking sound.

Hi and welcome to the site,

Initially, have the battery load tested.

Offhand, temporarily jumper the 2 big terminals of the starter relay. If the starter motor spins, then a faulty starter relay. To locate the starter relay, follow the cable from the battery's + terminal.

If even jumping the 2 terminals, the starter motor would not turn, either:
  • starter motor has issues more particularly the carbon brushes and/or the commutator segments; or
  • the battery is no longer able to hold sufficient charge.

Good luck and thank you for asking.
