Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

Wir I recently fixed my starter motor as it was holding on by one bolt the other bolt was still holding the broken part of the aluminium casing to the bike.This needed to be welded back on so that now it is fixed to the bike by two bolts as it should of been.Upon replacing wiring I may have put the voltage regulator earth wire to the main circuit breaker copper stud located under the oil tank.When ignition turned on the neutral light ,oil light ,full beam began to dim and brighten all in a intermittent fashion.and it also caused the wiring to the starter switch to heat up.It also making a click noise somewhere near the ignition each time it dims.Please help me PLEASE

Please do check for improper grounding of the wires...

My 1989 electraglides cases have filled with oil . i have replaced and resetted the check ball in the oil pump. now how do i get the oil out of the cases so the starter will turn the engine over fast...


if your worried that oil stopping your motor from turnning that oil is the same as a sitting shovel "sumpping" that oil will blow out your vent a little messy yup but you got a shovelhead still worried loosen your cam chest bolts just enough to seperate cover from case that should drain enough for you to feel comfortable with it

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 engages 50% of the time on 1999 fatboy, Harley Davidson


Its not a tough fix, You need what is called a starter clutch pack. NOT a new Starter. Your problem may be tools. You need two long allen wrenches. You need to remove ypur primary cover to remove the bolt in your jack shaft. You need to remove the wires to the starter. ALWAYS disconect your battery if you dont want to see sparks fly. Then its wiggle wiggle wiggle to get the starter out at times its necessary to loosen and lift oil bag. Depends on how much after market chrome you have also. good luck.

Replaced starter gear then torqued to 5 lbs,fired up,fine? replaced primary and now wont start?


Well, first off....Dont try starting it anymore without the primary, it can damage the gears. The problem you describe is common with custom builds. I'll assume you purchased the correct stock jackshaft for your model and installed the lock plate and everything else correctly. You can tighten the jackshaft bolt to 7-9lbs. Your last step is putting a wrench on the assembly and pulling it out and turning 1/4 turns to make sure its not binding, as a last resort you can bevel the jackshaft bushing on the out primary so it goes in smoothly - thats what I did on mine and it works like a charm. Good luck

Harley starter motor install instructions


Its not a complcated procedure. You'll need to open your primary. You install the jackshaft into the starter after its mounted. Make sure you put plenty of ani seize into the bushing on the outer primary and watch out not to over torue the jackshaft bolt - the spec is 5 lbs.

heres a couple of links that will give you more info. One is for a spyke starter install, but all starters install the same. The other is for a belt drive install which talks some about the starter

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.
