Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLHTC Electra Glide Classic
That's strange. It's unusual that a new starter would do this. The problem sounds like it's the "over running clutch" is bad in the starter. This is the clutch that locks up allowing the starter to turn the engine but freewheels when the engine starts to prevent damage to the starter motor. It's very unusual to get a new starter with the same problem you were having with the old starter.
One slight chance is the coupling between the starter and the jackshaft. Did you inspect the coupling when you had it out? I've never seen one bad but there's always a first time for everything.
The starter gear on the jackshaft must be engaged since the starter will not turn until the gear has moved far enough to engage. The construction of the solenoid insures this.
I'd take the bike to where ever you bought the starter and let them listen to it. Since the starter is considered an electrical component, there may be a bit tension involved with this. But, any shop worth is salt will have no problem with swapping out the starter. I wouldn't since most people don't fool around inside the starter and there's no way of damaging it with incorrect installation.
