Customer Question

I have an 88 softail with a 100 ci RevTec engine. Have had problems with rough starting since new engine, of course due to stock equipment turning 20 extra ci. My current problem seems to be that the starter shaft is not kicking out far enough to engage and turn the motor over. Have new solenoid so should'nt be the problem.
