    Hello to all. I'm from upstate NY in the heart of the Adirondack Mts. I have a 1987 1100 Sportster that I already claimed one Black bear with about ten years ago. Killed the bear but it didn't kill me, still riding and lovin it. I am having a problem with the Sporty lately. At times when I go to start it I get a single click several times and then it starts. Battery is new, I'm thinking solenoid maybe. Any ideas. Thanks.

    Sounds like the starter solenoid needs to be opened up and looked at. Maybe a rebuild or maybe just cleaning up the contacts will work for ya.
