Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles
Your starter solenoid is hung up for some reason. Disconnect the battery and pull the outer primary off. The fork that engages your starter drive is not functioning correctly and may be in a bind. It should move freely. Now, if it moves freely but still hangs up, your outer primary cover may not be aligned properly. It's supposed to have pins in it to align it when you put it on.
Take the solenoid off but leave everything else assembled. Just take the wires off the solenoid, remove the two bolts and spacer on the backside and remove the solenoid. Now you'll have the plunger and a spring hanging out of the primary. Pull the plunger backwards and the starter drive should engage with the ring gear. Push it in and it should disengage. If so, that's working fine. When you reinstall the solenoid, the spacer must be behind the mounting tab.
