If the start is not grounded it will not turn over the motor check battery cables going to start. There are no reset switches .

I would check the starter clutch its self first. It is a one way clutch so if you remove the starter and disassemble it to the starter clutch and hold the starter clutch in one hand and use your other hand to turn the starter clutch gear, it should only turn in one direction.

Have the battery LOAD tested, a lot of times a battery will show good with no load on it but it can actualy be bad when tested under load. Also make sure your grounds are good clean and tight. Loose grounds is a very common problem with the 1200 sportsters.

Is the battery new or just charged. the battery could be the problem. Check the cables for corrosion or loose connections. The cables can corrode inside the insulation near the battery this can be seen by swollen cables.

The starter is actually an assembly with a motor and a solenoid. The solenoid does two things: it closes a contact to send electricity to the motor, but it also moves a gear on the motor shaft upward to engage a gear on the engine flywheel. Most likely, you will have to replace the starter assembly to fix this.
Just in case, you should also check the gear on the engine flywheel. It's where the starter pinion engages. If it's missing several teeth, you could just be in that 'dead spot'. That can temporarily be solved by turning the motor a little bit to get to a good spot - but remove the sparkplugs first! And eventually you'll end up in the dead spot again. It is a more expensive repair.
Good luck! Please rate if you find this helpful, thanks!
