I have a 2002 Spirit 1100 and sometimes when I push the starter button the starter won't turnover. I'll try it a few more times then for some reason it'll start. I've tightened the battery cables, but does'nt matter if engine is cold or warm. I have a Stebel horn and a light bar w/the "Gonz" wireing harness connected to the battery. Bike only has 8500 miles with a 4 month old battery. Thanx for any suggestions.

I just went through a similar starting problem w/my 98 vt1100. Ended up being the starter switch. I've read posts here that suggest that switch is a frequent problem. Some have said it can be disassembled and cleaned up; I had to have mine replaced.

Thanx for the suggestions guys , I'll have to check it out. I asked a friend if it could be the switch about 2 weeks ago and he said prolly not, tighten the cables.
