Test for power to the solenoid when you push the starter button. This should help to eliminate the switch, relay,wiring etc. You can also run a jumper wire from the large (power) cable on the top of the starter to the green wire on the white connector on the end of the starter.

I have a 92 fat boy and the relay is clicking under the seat but no starter. was able two jump start it by pushing it down the street and popping the clutch in 2nd gear


Solenoid. Starter motor won't turn until the solenoid has fully extended the bendix into the starter ring on the clutch hub.

Of course, you could just always park on a hill :) Old school solution - will extend your battery life!

Good luck.

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.

Starter won't engage


better yet...............even if you have the minimun 12.5 volts on the battery, the amps may not be suffiicent to turn the starter and you will hear a clacking noice. the battery probably needs to be replaced.

Harley start trouble


Just your average run of the mill bad starter. When you take the plugs out, you relieve all the compression from the cylinders, therefore there is no load on the starter, and it turns it over. Put the plugs back, and you get the compression back, putting a tremendous load on the starter. Replace the starter and you're good.

Harley Davidson not starting


Disconnect the battery positive cable and yank straight up on it. If it seperates in two see a dealer. This was a recall so it will be repaired for free - no time limit, you don't have to be the original owner. If not, check the wire from the starter solenoid to the ignition switch. Also check the heavy ground cable from the battery to the frame, and the 10mm battery connections.

1200 Sportstart won't start, just clicks.


Sounds like something is hanging or froze up or the starter/solenoid contacts need to be cleaned or the battery cable connections at the frame ground and starter are either loose or corroded and need to be cleaned or maybe a wiring harness plug has corroded over the winter and needs to be cleaned.

1994 harley softtail custom just bought it!!!!!!!!!!!!


I think its whats called the commutator which is the contacts inside of the solenoid on the starter and they need to be cleaned. I've hung around a shop for years and have seen it a million times. Cant guarantee thats the problem but its a good place to start with the sounds of the problem.
