2008 FLTR Starter-Motor, Compensator, Questions
My starter motor is not working. I can hear it spin. But no engagement. Searching this forum I found that the starter clutch may be the problem. Appears to me that it is easier to replace the entire assembly (clutch + electric motor), than merely the clutch. BOUGHT "All Balls" 1.4KW to replace my '08 OEM.
There could also be a compensator problem. When in neutral, I shift to 1st and there is a loud clunk. Loud enough that even with my hearing emparement and PDA music buds in my ears I can easily hear the clunk. Only interested in a new compensator to cure a possible fault, and not because I want to change the gearing. Considering Baker.
I am otherwise very happy with the '08; not longing for a newer year replacement. Reliability on extended rides is most important to me.
Thanks and looking forward to comments.
