Question about Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide Motorcycles
Your early Evo still had the Hitachi starter and the old style solenoid switch. To check the starter relay, put a test like on the small terminal on the backside of the starter solenoid. It should be a green wire as best as I can remember. Turn the switch on and press the start button. If the test light lights up, the starter relay is working as it should. If not, the relay is bad. If the light lights up but the solenoid does not make a loud click, then the solenoid is bad and should be replaced. It the solenoid makes the loud click but the starter does not turn, the contacts in the solenoid are burned. You must take the back off the solenoid and check the contacts on the backside of the black phenolic plate. To do this, remove all the wires and cables from the back of the solenoid. There should be a nut left on all three studs on the backside, take them off. Then, remove the two screws that hold the phenolic plate on. One of the bolts will remain in the plate while the small stud and one of the larger studs are attached to wires. Check the backside of these studs for burning. One of the studs can be turned 180° and be reused. Rebuild kits are available on the aftermarket parts suppliers. When you put the plate back on, do not over tighten the nuts or the screws. The phenolic plate cracks very easily.
