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.

Change or charge battery


Hi, depending on what happens when the batery is fully charged, does it go flat aftera day or two or does it stay charged? If it keeps going flat take it to a battery centre to test the amps that the batery makes. I f the amps is out the battery is dead.

But

If the batery is fine after charged and the amps is correct and the bike still makes the batery flat.
Then you have to replace the Stator and the magnitor.

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.

Sonds like your bike may have a charging problem (regulator or stator) and you most likely need a new battery.

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.

Bike will not start no power


Touch a 12" piece of wire to one terminal then touch the other end of the wire to the other terminal. Got a really good spark? No spark = bad battery. Okay, so you do get a good spark. Check the wiring harness for an unplugged wire. Also check for loose connections and burned wires. Bad ignition switch? Kill switch turned on?
