Re: what going on
The starter motor doesn't spin until the starter gear engages the ring gear on the clutch basket. the starter gear doesn't engage unless you hit the start button the start button doesnt make the starter spin directly it is the "bendix" kicking the gear out to the ring gear that hots up the starter motor. so your problem is the gear is stuck engaged thats why the thing starts as soon as you turn the bike on because the gear is engaged and this is what hots up the starter. clear as mud? you might could clean and lub that part of the starter and avoid a rebuild or replacement

well considering you said it spins, i'm assuming you mean that you hear the starter spinning and it's not turning the motor. That means the starter gear is probably worn out and you'll need a new starter, as for the solenoid, if the solenoid was bad you would not hear the starter doing anything. So its a safe bet that your starter is not working properly.
If it is turning the motor, then you have an ignition or fuel issue.
WELL I WOULD CHECK BATTERY VOLTAGE IT NEEDS TO BE 13.5 THAT'S A GOOD BATTERY THEN I WOULD CHECK ALL GROUND FROM BATTERY SO YOU SAY IT CLICK DO YOU HERE THE STARTER MOTOR SPIN NEED MORE INFO TO HELP YOU THERE A WAY TO JUMP STARTER TO SEE IF IT SPINS BUT BE FOR WE GO THERE LET ME NOW THAT BATTERY VOLTAGE IS OK AND ALL CABLES ARE TIGHT.GOOD LUCK REDOIL
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
check the battery if the starter tested good the starter spining and clicking and not engaging the starter suggest the solonoid is suspect it kicks the starter out might be going bad. BATTERY is the common factor with the three starters working about the same lenght of time
ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it
