Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
Hi ..... Charge the battery fully, take a reading (good battery 12.5 - 12.8) and start the bike, Place a multi meter across the battery, with the bike running it should show a reading of 13.2 - 14.2. If the system is charging then it's your battery .............. least time I've had out of one was exactly one year of use on a Harley, eight days out of the warranty period. If you leave the battery overnight then take a second reading in the morning, it'll tell you if it 'bleeds' overnight or at rest. If you've got extras like heated grips, radio etc, make up a simple test bulb with two leads, disconnect negative lead and place one lead onto negative lead and second onto frame. If bulb glows or illuminates when ignition is off you have something the wrong side of the ignition draining the battery.
Good Luck ! ............ let us know how you get on.
