To change your starter, you'll have to disconnect your battery. Then, drain your primary and remove the outer primary cover. Bend the small locktab back and remove the bolt that holds the starter jackshaft on. Remove the starter jackshaft. There's a coupling that may or may not come out with the jackshaft. If it does, make sure you mark which direction it goes. It will come out, either with the jackshaft or the starter.

Now, on the right side of the bike, remove the exhaust system and anything else that might be in your way. Disconnect the battery cable from the starter. There are two large bolts that take a 1/4" hex key as best as I can remember that hold the starter on. Remove these and the starter will come off. Do not remove the small long bolts that hold the starter onto the solenoid. There is also a singe wire that plugs onto the starter at the top of the solenoid endplate.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2002 Dyna wide glide. Will not IDLE

not running for a year! You have a varnish buildup in the low end circuit of the carb. You will need to remove the carb and do a full teardown of the carb to properly rectify this problem. SOMETIMES we are able to free up the passages by putting SEA FOAM cleaner in the tank , fill her up with fresh fuel and ride through the tank and it will clear up. SEA FOAM can be purchased at an auto parts store and is sometimes very effective. 1/4 cup to full tank fuel.

The battery is charged but when you try to start the bike it makes a clicking sound. If you keep trying to start the bike it will start. 2002 Dina wide glide

sounds a bit like either a battery that is starting to go bad and not giving you enough cranking amps or a loose or bad ground wire.

I would check all the cables to the starter, battery and frame to be sure of clean contact and tightness.
also try a new battery to see if that helps
if this all fails then you may have to pull and rebuild the starter

hope this helps

How much oil in a 2002 wide glide

Unless they've changed something, most Wide Glides hold three quarts of oil. Always check the oil level with the dipstick. There are two marks on the stick. The lower mark is "Full Cold" the upper mark is "Full Hot". Check the oil with the bike on the side stand.

Good Luck
