Is't that the relay that is undersized and
recomended to be replaced with a heavy duty
unit.

Hi,

yes that relay was a bad setup.  Another way around the relay is to get a starter selonoid bypass button.  3 screws and the button is on.  Just push it in and your up and running.

I replaced mine with a Dyna 2000i single-fire coil ignition and have not had a lick of trouble since.  It has increased performance, gas mileage and starts up like a champ.  Best chunk a change I put into my "bad boy".

I have the same problem as of yesterday, went to start and only heard a click under the tank. I have pulled the old relay off , where would I find a Heavy duty relay? What other bike shops would stock this item? OR, what is the best route to take?

Hey Trip,

Go to www.indianmcleslie.com& nbsp; They have the relays and the bypass buttons for the starter selonoid in stock.  That way if you run into the problem again you can still ride.  Hope it works out.

Chopper6, The relay was ok, I bought a new one local and it did not fix the problem. I have checked with a meter and I am getting 12 volts to the starter when I push the starter button. Does this mean a new starter? And if so, how much trouble is it to change?

Trip,  First make sure that the red LED on the ignition module behind the coil is turning on then off when you first turn the key on.  If it is working then the starter is probably the problem.  They're not bad to change.  Removal of the outer primary and the oil tank is needed.  At the website is gave they have a starter and a gasket kit that will replace what you have to.  Hope that it works out.  If the ignition is the problem they have those in stock as well.  Chopper6

I did not realize I would need a gasket for the primary side, I thought it was a dry system there.

Is it dry, or just need a gasket to keep things clean?

The primary is a pretty thick gasket with a rubber seal embedded in the middle, if the rubber is still soft you could reuse it if you think your going to have it bck off real soon.

The seals that they sell are made of a graphite and if you don't tear them they can be reused many times.  They are very tough.  Even though you have a dry clutch system it may need the gasket changed.

The system is dry.  The gasket can harden and get brittle.  The gaskets they sell at indian motorcycle leslie are very tough and can be reused many times.  If its not on the website you can call them.  They stock alot of parts.

Thanks guys, I have the starter out with your hepl.

The Starter is a Compu-lite high torque, is this a stock starter for the 2000 indian?

Also, when I pulled off the end cover on the solinoid I can see a burnt copper contact, I am thinking that is the problem.

Yeah that sounds like it.  You can rebuild the solenoid or buy a new starter.  A new starter from indian motorcycle leslie would run 270.00 and it includes the solenoid bypass button.  Good luck.&
