    Glad to have you aboard! :ws:rider

    Check battery cables, they have two ends. Check them both for cleanliness and tight. Also have the battery load tested. After that I would pull the solenoid apart and see if it doesn't need a rebuild.

    Bodeen you're too quick for me! Thanks!

    What he said!

    I'd start with a load test on the battery. Make sure connections are good with no corrosion. I've had the starter clutch start acting like that. Sometimes it's good and sometimes it's noisy!

    Welcome to the forum.

    Not sure about your engine, but on my 08 FB, the starter lagged often when hot.
    Long story short: I changed to a starter with 0.2 more amps. It has not skipped a cog yet.

    Good luck to ya
