2003 Dyna-Starter I have 2003 Dyna and the starter needs to be replaced. Do I have to take the outer-primary off...it seems that the starter "shaft" is bolted to the inner wall of the innner-primary. Am I stuck with stripping the bike down to un-bolt the starter?

Yes you have to pull the outer primary to get to the bolts.

How do you remove starter on a 1992 harley davidson heritage softail


you really need to get a book to refer to as you do this cause its not just unbolt the starter and throw in a new one your outer primary has to come off to remove drive gear and you need to pay close attention to parts positioning so a book with pictures like clymer is worth getting.are you sure its the starter kind of a big job if it was a weak battery

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

1991 harley FXR won't start; replaced bad starter. it still won't start


- If the starter is turning the motor , I dont understand why u replaced the relay and the ignition....but - thats water under the bridge now .... Open the primary and check the jack shaft... put a pliers on it - pull it out and turn it 1/4 turn a few times - make sure its not binding. Take a look at the bushing on the outer primary.... may need to bevel the edges a little. Make sure the battery is charged enough to give the engine a few strong turns. Let me know what you find

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
