Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
Bike starts,every once in awhile i can hear bendix turn but not kicking in.
2 possibilities here. First, the solenoid and bendix are working correctly and the starter is kicking in. You will hear and be able to feel a "clunk" on the primary cover if you touch it. This means the overrunning clutch is going bad. (Can be called starter clutch, sprag clutch, etc. depending on the shop). About $40, but hard to install if you aren't at least a semi-experineced mechanic. Second, you have a failing solenoid (the pull-in coil) or the actual starter bendix is hanging up. Replace the solenoid and clean the starter. (DON'T use gasoline! Get some quick evaporating spray cleaner from the autp parts store.) If that fails, it looks like it's new starter time. Check all your wires and conncetions. Ya don't want to waste money on parts when a good cleaning with a wire brush could fix it.
