    I have a 2001 dyna wide glide. when i go to start the bike, the strater just starts turning, then the main breaker blows. it resets after it cools, but conitinues to blow everytime i try to start it. the first time it happened, sparks shot out from the starter/electrical panel area...no more sparks on further attempts. all wiring appears to be tight going to the starter and battery. also...seems like since i have owned the bike, the starter seems to drag at first...am i looking at a bad starter?
