1988 springer softtail

My ignition will not start. I push the start button and all I hear is ONE click and nothing else. If I jump the across the coil with a screwdriver or push the bike I can start it. How do I fix this problem?

I don't know if you got this problem fixed but sounds like you just need to replace the starter relay. The wire is not too thin, it is from the factory. The starter relay is normaly just behind the starter on the left side of the bike.

Sounds like you have a voltage drop (that is a loss of power between the start button and the starter solenoid) the wiring on that circuit may be too thin. to remedy this problem you need to put a relay in the circuit. let me know if you want to know the details of how to wire the relay up.

I have a 2005 fatboy and i replaced the battery. when i hit the start button the starter relay clicks and nothing happens. all my lights work and the fuel pump kicks on like normal. it just wont start


Sound like starter is stuck. Try giving it a tap with a rubber mallet, while pressing start button. If this does not work, put bike in gear and push it forward a few feet, then try again to start it. If still nothing try using jumper cables on battery, then start. If no go you have a bad starter.

82 FXRS that won't start


I have an 82 FXRS as well. I love it even though it has a vibration that comes and goes (motor mount issue most likely.) I would check for broken/loose connection on the solenoid before I started replacing components. I'd check the switch as well. Can't really reach the solenoid to jump it direct. Check the small stuff first.

WHEN I PUSH START BUTTON ON MY 01 FAT BOY IT JUST SPINS, IS THIS A SELENOID OR STARTER PROBLEM


well considering you said it spins, i'm assuming you mean that you hear the starter spinning and it's not turning the motor. That means the starter gear is probably worn out and you'll need a new starter, as for the solenoid, if the solenoid was bad you would not hear the starter doing anything. So its a safe bet that your starter is not working properly.

If it is turning the motor, then you have an ignition or fuel issue.

Buttons won't work


Try taking a credit card or ID card and placing it on its side across the top of the keys. Then swipe it down across the keys. This should unstick any of the keys that may be stuck and your phone should start working fine.

Harley davidson how to change tenttionners


Is your bike STOCK?? Have the Cams been changed? Do you have Stock Cam CHAINS & TENSIONERS, or is it updated to GEAR DRIVEN Cams? Either way, you have a Cam and or Lifter Problem, and if you are not a Harley Mechanic with access to Shop type tools and Equipment, then I suggest you take you Harley to a reputable repair shop for diagnosis and repair. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RIDE WITH THIS PROBLEM, IT WILL NOT FIX ITSELF and will only cause you MORE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE. Good Luck! -Dr.Mark

I have a 1984 Harley Davidson FXRS. I have a single fire crane hi 4 ignition system. It ran flawlessly for a few years and now the bike missed a few time then quit entirely. Now have no spark and would...


There's no real way to check the coil, it either works or it doesn't. I've found that with my Harley's when I lose spark it's generally a bad wire or loose connection. If the wires/connections are good, then it's either the coil or the ignition module. I'd say with the newer Crane on it, that the problem is going to be with the coil. Check the voltage from the ignition module going into the coil. I'm not exact on the voltage, but as long as you have a good strong current getting to the coil, and low to nothing on the plug wire side, then the coil is bad.
