    Yup. Hit ignition and you get the click click putt.

    I'd be checking the main power feed to the starter motor at both ends if it's going 'click click'. Take it off, clean it, make sure it has a good [tight] connection when it's put it back.

    What is 'putt'? Is it turning over?

    When I picked up my FLTR in 2007, first accessory I bought was a shop manual. I do my own repairs. Fuck those so called "techs" at the stealership. Glorified parts changers. Most won't touch anything older than an Evo.

    My pig. Bought new in '07, 60k miles on it currently:
