Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
Okay so I got my cables mounted and everything and I went to start my bike and when I turn the ignition switch in to the on position it just clicks somewhere down around the starter. When I added the apes I used shrink wrap butt conectors and I checked everything for bare wires. AfterI finished all the handlebar wiring I checked to make sure it would turn over and worked just fine. Now a couple days later this is all I get. Does this sound like maybe something that could be in the solenoid or the starter? If I put the ignition switch into the accesory position everything works fine but in the run position I dont even get the light on the speedometer or anything. Ive tried charging the battery and everything.
Check the battery connections. Remove, clean and reinstall them. You probably had them off doing the wiring and they aren't making a good connection now. Always remove the negative first and install it last.

Sounds like a short that could be draining the battery. Check all wire connections again. Look for any pinched wires that could be grounding out on frame or body ie: where wires leave switch housing on bars.
Try a new battery. I know they cost but sometimes that is all the problem. Most bike batteries are shot after one or two seasons. Use a battery tender and remove the battery in the off season.
