Postby 84Gl1200rider » Fri Jul 17, 2015 10:20 am



Hello I have a 84 interstate.starter spins over fine when cold but after short ride once engine is warmed up starter drags . I have replaced starter with a good used oem from the old eBay no difference. I am currently trying seafoam in the oil thought maybe starter clucth dirty. Has anyone had this problem if so please help

The first thing to check would be if you're getting 12 volts to the starter when the engine is warm. If not, work your way back through the starter relay. Perhaps the heat is opening a connection somewhere along the way.
