starter selonoid clicking but starter only sometimes turns over
Hey Guys, I gotta 02 v-rod and more and more often lately there is a hesitation of everything when I push the start button. Now, the starter selonoid is only clicking and the starter isn't turning over at all. Any suggestions? My thanks in advance.
Thats an easy one, if its like the issue I experienced on my 05 CVO its a relay on the fuse box. Dealer replaced the battery, Starter and cables. No fix. The relay is the same as the high beam relay if I am correct, so you can do a quick test then buy the part if it works. The PN is 31522-00C I now always carry a spare. I have replaced 3 in 9 years. Hope this solves your problem.
Having experienced exactly the same issue this week, mine was both a failing starter relay, and connections that had pushed through the plastic relay housing block. New relay fitted, and the wire connectors encouraged from the back to ensure tight contact, my problem has been resolved. Hope the OP has had similar luck; if not, check the female spade connectors have not been pushed away from the relay!
