Question about Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy Motorcycles
The first thing you want to do is check the battery, This is the most likely cause. Take the battery out of the bike and take it to an auto parts store. Ask them to "load test" the battery. They'll usually do this for no charge. If the battery test good or you replace the battery, make sure your connections are clean and tight.
If it's not the battery, it could be the contacts inside the starter's solenoid. Since I don't know what model bike we're working on or how many miles it has on it, I'll be general in nature. On the right side fo the bike you'll see a five sided plate on the end of the starter solenoid. Remove the three small bolts and remove the plate. There's a plunger and a spring behind the plate that you'll remove. Inside the solenoid, you'll see two large copper contacts. If they're badly burned, you can get a rebuild kit that comes with new contacts and a new plunger. This should cure your problem.
