  • Problem today PLEASE Help

    So I was leaving work today and my bike wouldn't turn over. lights were bright, no problems starting this morning. checked battery connection everything was tight. Checked fuses and kill switch all ok. Tried to push start and not enough room. Kept trying the starter and finally 1 rev and it started. The entire way home something sounded funny. When I got home and shut it off the starter was running. Pulled the key starter still running. Hit the kill switch starter still running. Removed negative from battery and it shut down. Burned my finger and thumb on negative bolt. Both pos and neg terminals look scorched. Did my battery cause this or is it possibly a short somewhere? Or maybe something else? 2001 Roadstar Silverado

    You might have gotten the starter hot.... welded itself? I don't think what your describing is the "starter spin" problem

    (but here is the info https://wayback.archive-it.org/10073.../view/187/103/)

    Did you check/test/replace the starter relay?

      You need to replace the starter relay under the left side cover. It has welded itself together inside. You probably also trashed the battery cables. I can help with that. I make and sell upgraded battery cables. PM me if you would like to purchase a set. They are $45 shipped in the U.S.

        Unless you want to go through that again in the near future do not buy a cheap, aftermarket starter relay. They don’t last.

        Buy OEM. They are pricey, but there’s an obvious reason for that.

        Here is the part number for the one you need.
