Hi ......... Use a multimeter across the battery when the bike is running, should show 12.8-14volts. If its more your regulator is defective. Find the wires from your alternator (left hand engine casing), should be six, three of which will be YELLOW. With the engine NOT running disconnect the connector (behind left side panel) and using the multimeter on continuity, take readings from one to the other two wires. You shouldn't get any noise readings as thay should all be insulated from each other. Anything different indicates it as defective and casing on that side has to come off for it to be replaced.
Let me know how you get on.

I've wired my system through my capacitor then to my amplifier. When I turn on my vehicle the capacitor drains and my amp. goes into protection mode. I believe it's wired correctly but I don't understand...

How did you connect the capacitor? it must be in paralel with the can also try to mesure in the amp and capacitor, the tension in the positiv and negative connection, it must be 14,4vdc when the car is working..if not, check the batery, fuse and ground connection until you get 14,4vdc. hope this help.

Bike wont start turn over till batery dies. where

It will have a fuel filter in the fuel line (should be easy to find) but does not have a fuel pump. Firstly i would check you have spark on all cylinders as this is the most likely thing to be going wrong. Once you are sure you have spark you can start trouble shooting fuel and air delivery problems.
To check for spark remove a sparkplug, insert it back into its HT lead. Place the threads of the sparkplug on the engine block and crank the engine. A strong blue spark should be visible.

Will only start once after charging all night.

Make sure battery is not over heated (suggest bringing battery in home/room temp to cool down 1st) Clean contacts of battery ideally with alcohol swab or very slightly damp cloth, white calcium build up can cause poor connection clean wire clamps connected to battery also HAS TO BE BONE DRY Make sure you didn't flood gas driven mower. Simply give mower time to cool down Patience rules with problem solving/trouble shooting always explore easiest solutions first Spark plugs cleaned oil checked and filters cleaned also maybe simply too damp to function

My 2000 harley davidson motorcycle wont hold a charge

Get access to the battery terminal posts, star the bike and set the meter to "Volts DC". Touch the leads to the positive and negative posts and see what the meter reads. If the voltage is between 13-15 volts then the bike is charging, if thats the case the bike is charging but your battery is hooped. Start with that and if the bike isnt charging then write back again for trouble shooting instructions.

Start with jump and run but the batery no charge

You need a voltmeter to test with. Check your battery voltage while the bike is running. At idle you should get around 13-14v, at 4000 rpm you should get over 14. If you're getting less than 13 your charging system has a problem. Could be a bad voltage regulator.

Starting problems

You don't have neough battery power to start - the noise you hear is the starter motor turning, but not engaging the starter ring.
Either charge the battery for longer or replace the battery.
