    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.

    Glad to have you aboard! :ws:rider

    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.
