Good Afternoon Everyone:

My husband rides a 98 Heritage Springer Softail and is experiencing problems with his starter, we think? Basically, we went for a ride and could not get the bike started after it sat for a couple of hours. He took off the air filter, played with the carburetor and it started. Next day, when he turned it over, the starter began dragging . Now it will not even start, no juice. Lights are on until he tries to start it then the headlights go dim or completely out. Any suggestions?

Thanks

I would check all the wires, on the starter, grounds and battery. Plus check the battery. beyond that you have to wait for someone thats knows something to show up. lol

Check all the battery cables at both ends, remove them, clean them and secure them. Including the positive cable at the starter solenoid and the chassis ground.

You need to get a good battery into the bike to check charging voltage.

Some batteries are bad even out of the box, so a relatively new battery is meaningless.
