Another common problem with this year FLSTF is the key switch, OEM has a mechanical switch that can fail, often you can go to the second setting and start the bike. Likely a new switch will fix issue

Your bikes not getting the message thats its turned on. Check your start button, the wiring to the start button. If thats not it, the key switch/wiring.

How to start harley fat boy after long storage?


If it is carburetted you may have had fuel dry up and contaminate, plug carburetor jets etc. IN any case even if EFI the fuel is likely stale and you need to drain the fuel tank and put in fresh fuel. Did you have your mufflers plugged or did rodents get into them and build nests?? Is you battery dead. Re charge it to hold at least 12.6VDC and have it load tested. If you did not have it on a battery maintainer it is likely shot. Does it do anything, any lighting on, any click when you try to start it etc. POST a lot more information if you wantmore definitive assisatnce etc.

Harley turns over once or twice then clicks


If the battery is good, all connections good, clean tight then sounds like the starter BUT you can test that also.

Hi Anonymous, on a Softail remove seat and directly behind the battery is a black plastic box. The cover slides up and off revealing the starter relay and the system/fuel pump relay for you injected folks and the various assorted circuit fuses. Good luck and have nice day.

Harley heritage 1994 starter relay repair


Hi Anonymous, when you are trying to diagnois anything in the starter circuit you must start with a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or better and will pass a load test of 9 volts or better while cranking the engine over and the cable connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends. If you suspect a faulty starter relay just swap it with your horn, brake, or system/fuel pump relay, if the bike starts with no problems replace the bad relay. Good luck

Can i boost my motorcycle with my 4 cylinder car?


Yes you can but anytime you jump start your bike with either another vehicle or one of those "booster" battery chargers, you are risking damaging the electronics on your bike with a voltage spike. I'd prefer to use a slow charge battery charger overnight to build the battery up to the point where it will start the bike. If the battery is over a year old on your Fat Boy, take it out and have it load tested. The Softail bikes are extremely rough on batteries due to the heat and vibration they are subjected to inside the horseshoe oil tank.

Good Luck
Steve

I have a 2005 harley davidson fatboy and my problem is that when i try to start the bike it clicks really loud ?, the volts on my battery are 12.80, but when i put the bike on the 200 amp engine start it...


You cannot go by a volt meter reading to tell whether your battery is good or not. The battery will read 12 volts and still not have enough current to light a decent bulb on your bike. This is because the volt meter is designed not to load the battery down. You starter puts a tremendous load on the battery. I'd also avoid using the "boost" or "jump start" position on the battery charger. You can get a voltage spike from those things and take out some expensive electronics on your bike. Take the battery out of the bike and take it somewhere that can "load test" the battery.

Good Luck

You have a shorted cell in the battery. Go buy a new battery. When you're trying to start the bike, it's doing so on 10 volts or less. When the voltage drops, the amperage goes sky high. That's why the battery, the cables, and the starter motor are heating up.
Good Luck
