if the bike does not turn over as you describe clean the switch on the clutch and side stand as these can stick which will not allow the bike to turn over.

Springer classic clicks when trying to start


Make sure the battery is fully charged. Contrary to what some people will tell you, Harley batteries are not fully charged when shipped to dealerships. I work at a dealership and it normally takes a full 8 hour shift to charge a new battery that fits your bike. The clicking sound in normally caused by a low battery. Good luck!

sounds like your battery is just low,, it doesn't have the amps to actually turn the car over fully, you have 2 options, get the battery charged, or try to get someone to help you with a jump start,, either way , once you get it started, take the battery and have someone do a LOAD test on it,, to be sure all the cells are taking a full charge

there is a common fault with the 1250 bandit in that the magnets detatch inside the starter motor and it eventually breaks up and stops working, this can begin with sluggish starter especially when hot, it would appear to be a flat battery but the power required by the failing starter can drop the battery off quickly to confuse you when trying to find your fault

Harleys pull a lot of amps starting,, Just because the battery says 12v doesn't mean the charge is handling the draw when trying to start them ,, get the battery LOAD checked,, remember also,, Harley's are known for drawing Juice when starting , thats why any dealer or shop will tell you that if you start one be sure and drive it a while,, start and stop trips eat up the battery since the alt won't keep up with the charging. when I leave mine for any time, I use one of the trickle charge units just to keep it at full

Problems starting Buell


I finally had some time and it was really nice out but my Lightning won't start. I just had it fully serviced before I parked it for the winter. New synthetic oil new plugs and a TPS reset. It's been sitting with a gas tank 70% full of premium for 4 or 5 months. The battery was extremely low so I trickle charged it over night. The charger said complete. The lights are bright. I went to start it and it barely made a slight sound like it wanted to turn over. Now it just clicks really loud whenever I press the start button. This thing only has 1100 miles on it and looks great. I've babied it and it's been fully services 3 times since new. Any tips? Suggestions?Did you try kick starting it?  Put it is gear and hold the clutch in (with the key on) then push it up to about 5 mph, then pop the clutch.  I had the same problem with my old ZX7R.  It turns out it was my battery.  Even though it took a charge and held one, it didn't hold enough amps to turn over the engine.  And I am thinking that a 1200cc v-twin needs some decent current to turn over.  Could also be a dead spot on the starter.  Also, did you put any stablizer in your tank before you parked it?  It isn't good to leave a tank under 90% full over the winter, especially without any stable in it.  Moisture can get into your tank and ruin the petrol.  Usually it will start though, just will run terrible.,,,

you simply fried your battery by overcharging it. Just get a new one, let it fully charge and fully die twice before you start normal charging. Then you will want to only charge it for about 2 to 3 hours or find a charger that has a smart chip that tells it when to stop charging once the battery is full.
