Question Starter Issue

When I go to hit the start button, it makes a thump noise. As if the drive gear from the starter kits out, but then is stuck. Battery is good and fully charged.

Motor is not seized either, we turned it by hand.

I don't know what the problem is... hate to have to start taking back off the bike after all the hard work putting it all together

which bike is it? If its the HD, the starter jackshaft might not be engaging the starter ring inside the primary. Open the primary and check to see that it moves out and engages correctly and smoothly. DISCONNECT the battery when doing this for several reasons. If you pull the starter jackshaft by hand, it will electrically engage and not only bend the shaft but also likely chew your fingers off. You can bench test the starter.

start with checking for a solid ground. not only your battery but where it connects to the frame. Also some starters will have another ground from the starter. If loose, you'll get crappy draw and also melt the battery terminal.

Wiring was done by a professional (Thanks supadupa for the lead on Beth )

I will be following HD's instructions tonight, to see if his theories are good.

Is it a click or an actual audible thump?

It's an actual thump... the jackshaft kicks out, but that's it. The engine turns over by hand like normal too, so its not seized.

Ah ok, just making sure it's not the solenoid. Yeah, you have a starter clutch issue.

I was really hoping I didn't have to undo anything... dang. Pulling the oil tank off is just a PITA.

If its a new starter & is the one that HD twincam's use, its the same exact starter as a Toyota (corrolla).

Post a pic and I'll find the toyota part number and you can get it anywhere.

I just got the starter off, but I'm sure I'll need help getting my clutch adjusted again. I'll give you a shout... thanks bud!
