Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
Yes the lights are fine, battery is fully charged (also tried car battery to verify). I agree it must have something to do with the starter but it seems strange it won't turn over all all when the plaugs are in but when I remove them (leaving the caps on) they fire and the engine turns over.
Probably starter/solenoid contacts needs to be cleaned or somthing from it sitting. Could even be the starter relay. If everything else seems to work on the bike then its probably something with the starter system.
Just your average run of the mill bad starter. When you take the plugs out, you relieve all the compression from the cylinders, therefore there is no load on the starter, and it turns it over. Put the plugs back, and you get the compression back, putting a tremendous load on the starter. Replace the starter and you're good.
