So I've had a ton of issues with this bike ranging from starting, to the bike dying while riding, to screen blanking, to having my battery, radiator hose and clutch replaced on my bike with 10,500 miles. (All of which I talked about in this thread: Here!)

So I was told today by a new dealer (not the one I got the bike from) that they've already replaced 3 other starters in both 2021 and 2022 Pan Am's with the explanation of:

"The Harley factory sometime between 2021 and 2022 changed the design of the starter to draw less power, while increasing the gear ratio for torque thus improving starting. Some 2022's have the old starter however, and my bike is one of those (they checked the serial apparently)."

I haven't found ANY information anywhere else about this...has anyone else heard something about it? And if you're having starting issues, (if this is true), this might be something you want to follow up with your dealer.

Well this is extremely helpful, thank you very much.

I'm curious about the picture of the new starter clutch. Any chance the "interactive" pictures show more detail? Doesn't look like the gearing was changed...? Unless I'm mistaken?

And, this also mentions only a gearing change, nothing about power draw...which is something my dealer said was also addressed...hrm =\

EDIT: Also means what my dealer told me about this being something they fixed between '21 / '22 bikes being BS...yay..
