Yeah, that starter motor will make the bike get up and go. I did that once and ruined a nice Lockhart oil cooler.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Pulled into my crowded garage once, hit the remote garage door closer, bulb was blown out on the automatic overhead light. Parked pretty close to lathe. Forgot to put kickstand down, in the dark, tipped over. Hit the on lever for the lathe. In the dark, trying to grapple with bike leaned over, chuck spinning too close...
Don't drink and park.
