    I have a 03 super glide, when you start it the starter sound like it is spining but is not turning over the motor, after taking off the primary cover i can see that the jackshaft is engaging into the starter ring but the jackshaft is not turning, starter clutch ? or replace the whole starter

    I just went through this on my old lowrider. I replaced the clutch which fixed it but only lasted a month or so after, ended up replacing the entire started after.

    Had same problem with my custom. Sometimes Higher compression motors can fry your clutch. Replaced mine with Drag Speciaties clutch and installed compression releases for "Hot" starts. Seems to be doing OK. Cost for clutch about $70.00.

    Do you have any details on the installation and use of compression releases for our performance minded enthusiasts? :reyes

    Don't tell Gary I told you this but here it goes.:s Take your old part to match it up, there's a few that fit.

    WAI PART DESCRIPTION

    Gotta use a little imagination Gary. How long do you think the video would be if they showed him removing the heads and drilling them?

    There's also kits available to do it on the bike as well without removing the heads.

    Hope you're writing all this down so when I call you and question you, you have the right answers.:D

    There's always this option too...
