What he said sounds right to me. Good luck.:nodIt sounds like a problem with the starter.
A repeated click click click as long as the switch is engaged is a bad connection or a low battery charge.
One solid click when the button is pushed in is a bad connection through the solenoid or a bad starter.
My problems that I'm having seem similar but worse . I just purchased a new HD battery two days ago and I went to start my sportster after about a hour of riding. No luck....not even headlights! Heard the infamous click then nothing after that ull. I received a jump from a friend and tried to make it home; it died while I was riding...all electrical power just went out. Tried to jump it again but it would not stay runinng after it was jumped. A friend put a volt meter on the battery and that was ok. In the end 8 buddies had to lift the sporty up into a truck to get it back to my house. Plz advise what the possible problems may be.hey everybody. my sportster wont start! when i hit the starter all i hear is a click. i was riding it and stalled out and after that it wouldnt start up again. i just hear a loud click everytime i hit the starter. Help please
