Can you bump start a fuel injected Harley?

Registered. You cant “bump” start a FI system if the battery is TOTALLY dead.. 0 volts as would happen if you left something on or had a short. But you can bump start a very low battery.

Can you start a Harley without a battery?

The battery holds no meaning during the running process unless the alternator is bad. It’s also possible to jump start a motorcycle without a battery. All you need to do is connect the jumper cables to the positive and negative terminal wires and the motorcycle will run until you turn it off.

Why is my Harley Davidson Ultra Classic not starting?

I have a 2010 ultra classic with ABS. It is not starting. The battery voltage is 12.75 off the battery. When I turn the main switch on, I get a drop to 12.5, and when the kill switch is turned on, I get a drop to 12.38. The self test goes out and hit the start switch with nothing – no volt drop, no starter engage, no nothing. DEAD.

How do you push out a Harley starter?

Run a second ground lead from the battery negative terminal to the solenoid post. Then, run a lead from the starter contact (where the green trigger wire from your start button plugs into) and connect the opposite end to the battery positive post. *The starter shaft should PUSH out.

What’s the voltage on a Harley Davidson starter?

I check the voltage at the kill switch and get 12.3 from the black and white wire that goes to the kill switch and the start button. But, I only get 9.2 volts from the black and red wire from the start switch to the start relay. All the fuses are good and there are 12 volts to the starter and the solenoid.

Why is my starter not working on my Harley Davidson?

The starter did push through it but after about 1/2 of a revolution, the engine kicked back as if the timing was too advanced. That caused the starter pinion to kick out of the ring gear which resulted in the starter grinding. I then released my finger from the start button. Pushed it again and it started correctly.
