Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic
The first thing to do is have the battery tested. Take it out and take somewhere that can do a "load test" on the battery. Just because the voltmeter says it has 12 volts, that doesn't mean that it has that much when a load is put on the battery. You could have a shorted cell in it.
Next, if it sounds like an air impact in that it is engaging, disengaging, and doing it all over again, it sounds like the hold in coil is bad. You could take the starter out and take it to a dealer and have them check it or if there's a starter repair shop close by they could check it out. More than likely, if the dealer was doing the job, he'd simply replace the starter if the battery is good.
To remove the starter, disconnect the battery, drain the primary, and remove the primary cover. Take the small bolt out of the starter jackshaft and remove the jackshaft. Sometimes I've seen it where you had to take the snap ring out of the center of the clutch and loosen the clutch nut so that it could slip outward just a bit. The nut has LEFT HANDED THREADS ON IT. When you take the jackshaft out, there is a coupling on it. Make sure you mark which way it comes out so you can get it back in the same way.
Now, on the other side, remove the exhaust system and anything else that may be in the way of getting the starter off. There are two large bolts that hold the starter in. Remove these two bolts and the battery cable and the starter will come free.
