I'm having trouble with my Chopper with what appears to be electrical issues (go figure, a BigDog with electrical issues). I bought my bike brand new in the Summer of 2004 and for the first 12-16 months I had nothing but Hell (which sounds like from reading threads, insn't uncommon). I had the ECH changed (while still under factory warranty) and that corrceted a lot of issues for a while. It wasn't until I changed the ECH myself with the upgraded computer that she actually ran better than she ever did before. I rode it for several years with the normal maintenance needs until recently. I try to start the bike and the compression releases engage, release and then nothing else. I ran all the traps, checking voltage to the appropriate wires and I got to he starter. I've taken it off and thinking I could test it by supplying a charger to the possitive and negative lugs on the starter to see if it would engage. When I did, nothing. With the starter on a work bench, shouldn't this engage the starter as it would a car or am I missing something? ( During the multiple replacement of parts during the warranty period, the starter was replaced with a higher torque starter, so ths is not the original starter than came with my bike. Thanks in advance for the input.
