1. Visually inspect the battery connections and note the location of the positive (+) and negative (-) terminals. 2. Disconnect the negative (-) cable from the battery with a wrench. 3. Disconnect the positive (+) cable. 4. Remove the hold-down clamp which holds the battery in place. 5. Lift out the battery. 6. Inspect the battery tray for corrosion or damage. Clean or replace the tray and attaching parts as needed. 7. Inspect the battery cables for damage. Clean or replace the cables as needed to ensure a good connection. For replacing battery cables, contact your local Interstate Batteries dealer at 1-800-Crank It. 8. Install your new Interstate battery and secure it with the hold-down. Be sure the new battery is the same voltage and group size as your original equipment battery. Check to ensure that it has at least the same cold-cranking amp (CCA) and reserve capacity (RC) ratings as specified by the original equipment manufacturer. 9. Attach the positive (+) cable to the positive (+) terminal. 10. Attach the negative (-) cable to the negative (-) terminal. Be careful not to over tighten.

have you tried checking the charger with a multi-meter? this can help to see if the charger is attempting to charge the battery (in some cases the battery could have a inline fuse to replace as well try replacing it and see if the battery takes a charge if not the battery can be replaced or in some youtube videos replaced with a car's battery to run with)

Battery goes flat whilst bike running

A couple possible problems: 1. Battery is old and sulfonated preventing the charge to hold. 2. Stator has gone south and needs replacing, Both can be checked by a competent mechanic.

Most stators are 3 phase, meaning each positive wire produces up to 14.4 volts or close. Using a multimeter each wire can be checked. I don't know the model of your bike but usually leads from the rectifier are close to the battery but don't have to be. The rectifier converts AC from the stator to DC to charge the battery. Check each leg before and after the rectifier with a multimeter. If any leg doesn't produce more than 13v the the rectifier needs replacing.

Took battery out for the now i replace battery but it wont start

Does anything else electrical work (i.e. lights, horn, etc. etc.) if not you may have shorted out something and should check your Master fuse which is usually in line on your + battery lead. If other electrical items work check your other fuses and your starter relay. You may also want to check your battery terminals and make sure they are not carbonized. This would happen if the the original reason for replacing the battery was due to loose contacts that cause enough arching that it destroyed the battery terminal. If this is the case, chip, file, grind or sand off the carbonation to reveal the bare metal on the contacts. This is most likely to have happened to the neg. terminal since HD's are know for the neg. terminal getting loose. Hope this helps.

What battery do i fit to replace the old one on a 2005 Harley Davidson Road King Custom?

I'd recommend replacing with a Harley-Davidson AGM battery. They are very good batteries and competitively priced.

Good Luck

Replacing battery on 883 -- have an "extra"

If the cable came off the positive post of the original battery and the replacement battery is the same kind, it should reach. Sounds like you bought a battery that has "reversed" posts. The positive and negative posts are reversed from the way the original battery was. If so, you'll need to either take the battery back and exchange it or lengthen the cable.

One option is to take the large battery positive battery cable loose from the starter and connect it to that post along with the battery cable. Two wires running to the starter. It's the same as having two wires at the positive terminal.

Good luck

I think I have a bad stator on my 2002Harley Dyna

too many variables !
Firstly check battery under load ! any battery place or auto electrician can so it usually free!
do this before replacing any thing else!
make sure all connections are clean & tight
if battery is ok get them to check the charge rate on bike! its a simple test or you can do it with a volt meter they are only cheap to buy!
