Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
If the starter is making a loud clacking noise, the battery could be bad. Take the battery to an automotive parts store and have it load tested. If the battery is good, the contacts in the solenoid may be bad. Take the pentagon shaped plate off the end of the starter, remove the plunger, and check the large copper contacts for errosion and burning.
If nothing is happening. Disconnect the singe wire connector just above that pentagon shaped plate. Connect a test light or volt meter to the wire end. Turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. The test light should light or the meter should show battery voltage. If not, your starter relay may be bad.
If you can hear the starter running but the engine is not turning over, your over running clutch is probably bad. You'll have to remove the starter, take it apart, and replace the clutch. If you can do it yourself, you can save some money. But, if your going to have to pay a mechanic, just have him replace the starter. the cost of the labor time will eat any savings that might be realized by replacing the clutch.
