- If the starter is turning the motor , I dont understand why u replaced the relay and the ignition....but - thats water under the bridge now .... Open the primary and check the jack shaft... put a pliers on it - pull it out and turn it 1/4 turn a few times - make sure its not binding. Take a look at the bushing on the outer primary.... may need to bevel the edges a little. Make sure the battery is charged enough to give the engine a few strong turns. Let me know what you find

Removed battery. Replaced starter. Reinstalled battery. Why is there no power anywhere?


Hi, Bruce you may have a faulty main fuse otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Security alarm needs a reset.
6. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping.

Harleys pull a lot of amps starting,, Just because the battery says 12v doesn't mean the charge is handling the draw when trying to start them ,, get the battery LOAD checked,, remember also,, Harley's are known for drawing Juice when starting , thats why any dealer or shop will tell you that if you start one be sure and drive it a while,, start and stop trips eat up the battery since the alt won't keep up with the charging. when I leave mine for any time, I use one of the trickle charge units just to keep it at full

93 wide glide when i hit the start button all i get is a click i have all realdy clean the battrie cable and the battrie is full charged


remove the starter and the home plate shape cover. the plate covers the solenoid and can have carbon build up on those two contacts. It maybe fairly worn also and replacing is needed instead
Local starter rebuilding shops can repair this for you

When trying to start my 1991 Plymouth Sundance America I hear only a clicking sound. I replaced the battery but it did not work. Can it be the alternator?


sounds like you have a bad starter.not your alternator.if the battery is good the car should start even if the alternator is bad.you can even drive the car until the battery runs low.the alternator job is to keep the battery charged.soulds like the solinoid is clicking.but no responce from the starter.have starter checked.

1987 FXLR 80" 11-1 compression Evo Engine. S&S heads, barrels, and carb matched to a '91 clutch assembly and a Spyke starter. Have a continual problem of having the starter jack-shaft "fall" and...


The problem on your starter sounds like the "overrunning clutch" in the starter. The jackshaft cannot "fall" as the outer end of it is supported by the outer primary cover. It's engaging your ring gear, just not turning the engine. If the start spins, this means the jackshaft has been pushed into the engaged position because the starter will not spin until the solenoid plunger is in the full forward position. So, the only thing left is the "starter clutch". With a compression ratio like you have, you should be running compression releases if you wish to keep even a Spyke starter in the bike.

As for the electrical problem, it sounds like you've got a stator shorting out on you. I had one customer with a 90 FXR that was happening to. His bike would run fine for days and weeks but ever so often, it wouldn't start due to a dead battery and he'd just been riding it. We replaced the entire charging system. The only thing that we hadn't replaced prior to that was the stator. Now, if you wish to prove this, you'll have to catch the problem when it's not charging the battery. If you wish, you can purchase a voltmeter at any automotive parts house and install it on your bike. The battery should charge at 14.5 to 14.8 volts. Anything below that, the battery will slowly discharge. If you can, test the stator output. Unplug the connector at the cases. Inspect the connector to make sure the connections are in good shape up inside the plug. You need one those hold downs that keep this plug tight as well. Using a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) put one of the meter leads on each pin in the case, put the meter in AC volts, 50 volt range. Start the engine and you should read about 25 volts or greater. If not, the stator is defective.

Good Luck
Steve.

92 FXR bike will not start or even turn over


the starter solinoid is not working if it has an electric start, try kick starting it, if it won't start check the points or the ingiter coil.

91 buick was running good cleaned battery cabels now will not start no spark


Hello,
1.Make sure all connection to the battery are secure opposite end of pos/neg connections connecting to the starter and and ground are also secure and clean..
2.Try jump starting the car.
3.If step one or two did not correct the problem, have the battery tested and re-charge the or replace the battery if required.
4.If the above three steps do not correct the problem, before starting the car, gently tap on the starter with a small hammer, then try and start the car. If the car starts, you have a faulty solenoid in the starter, which indicates the starter needs to be replace. Please rate this solution if you found this helpful.
