Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
Its probably the starter drive you have to pull the starter to change it though with the cost of hd parts add the time to change the drive,not to mention the real possibillity that the rest of the starter may be tired i would go looking for an aftermarket starter the prices have really come down on them

You don't say what year/model your bike is. None the less, most likely the starter bendix is shot. This can happen in an instant (especially if you have a mechanical advance and the springs are weak or broken.) This would make a sort of "zing"ing sound when you try to start it. The solenoid's job is to push the bendix into position to engage the starter ring on the clutch hub. The starter motor won't turn until the solenoid is fully engaged. Check the bendix - it should turn freely in one direction and not at all in the other. Good luck.
