Re: harley starter motor install instructions
Its not a complcated procedure. You'll need to open your primary. You install the jackshaft into the starter after its mounted. Make sure you put plenty of ani seize into the bushing on the outer primary and watch out not to over torue the jackshaft bolt - the spec is 5 lbs.
heres a couple of links that will give you more info. One is for a spyke starter install, but all starters install the same. The other is for a belt drive install which talks some about the starter

no you do not have to take the engine off the frame. all you do is remove the gas tank and seat disconnect all wiring to the engine take the carb off and unbolt the rocker cover of the cyclinder that has the blown head gasket then unblolt the head replace gasket then reasemble in the reverse order
Pull the spark plugs out and hit the starter. This will make sure that the engine is not locked up. If the starter does not turn the engine, put the bike in first gear and have someone push you, making sure the engine is free. If the engine is OK, your starter is probably jammed and needs replaced. That wire getting hot is a dead giveaway something is locked up tight...starter or engine. If ya have a large hi-performance engine in the bike, chances are your stock starter won't do the job.
WELL I WOULD CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE IT NEEDS TO BE 13.5 THAT'S A GOOD BATTERY THEN I WOULD CHECK ALL GROUND FROM BATTERY SO YOU SAY IT CLICK DO YOU HERE THE STARTER MOTOR SPIN NEED MORE INFO TO HELP YOU THERE A WAY TO JUMP STARTER TO SEE IF IT SPINS BUT BE FOR WE GO THERE LET ME NOW THAT BATTERY VOLTAGE IS OK AND ALL CABLES ARE TIGHT.GOOD LUCK REDOIL
do you have commpression releases on your motor if not you may need to in stall this will ease the stress off your starter and your motor will turn over easier if you do have the releases not sure what you may need to do without hearing the drag to determine if gearing is issue
Well, first off....Dont try starting it anymore without the primary, it can damage the gears. The problem you describe is common with custom builds. I'll assume you purchased the correct stock jackshaft for your model and installed the lock plate and everything else correctly. You can tighten the jackshaft bolt to 7-9lbs. Your last step is putting a wrench on the assembly and pulling it out and turning 1/4 turns to make sure its not binding, as a last resort you can bevel the jackshaft bushing on the out primary so it goes in smoothly - thats what I did on mine and it works like a charm. Good luck
first ya gotta figure out what clicks - is it the relay, or the starter ? In either event - you'll need a multi meter or voltmeter to trouble shoot it.... but since u just replaced the battery - start by checkin the battery connections especially at the starter. Torque em and rotate em to grind em in and make a good connection. If that s not it - you have a bad solenoid or starter motor or relay. oh - before you start replacing stuff - make sure ya gotta full charge from the battery
check the battery if the starter tested good the starter spining and clicking and not engaging the starter suggest the solonoid is suspect it kicks the starter out might be going bad. BATTERY is the common factor with the three starters working about the same lenght of time
