Hey all, just a FYI, I noticed the black paint flaking off of my starter on my new glide so I took it to the "stealership" where I bought it. And it wasn't the first one to come in with the same problem. Right now the MOCO is telling them to touch it up with some Harley Wrinkle blk paint, my tech did just that and decided on his own that it looked horrible so he removed the starter and painted the whole thing. It looked better that "touching it up" but I still don't like it and neither does the service manager there, so he's bringing a rep. down next week to look at the starters and what their doing to them. I'll keep ya's posted on what happens but I went ahead and had him credit me a new starter and paid the difference for a chrome one. Just some info. I thought i'd pass on! It may be happening on different models, but he mentioned just 09 Glides when I was there.
