Jack shaft sticking

Anybody ever had the starter jack shaft not retract after starting? My 2003 FXSTI hung a while back and would not release even when I pulled the power to the starter to make sure it wasn't still energized. Finally let go after I rode it a few feet down the road. Pulled primary cover off, everything seems ok, and acts normal now with cover removed. Just curious before I went to all the trouble to pull the starter.

Re: Jack shaft sticking

just my guess but it sounds to me like your starter clutch got stuck for some odd reason making it all stay intact I had that happen to my 67 and it broke my jack shaft into turned out it was starter clutch.
