If your bike does not have a fuel gauge it's probably not fuel injected either. If this is the case, you should have a reserve setting on your fuel petcock unless it has been changed. Look closely at your petcock. It should have "on", "off", and "res" on it somewhere but the letters will probably be pretty small.

The '96 models were the first model to have the vacuum operated petcock and they were notorious for giving problems. Your petcock may have already been changed due to this. If not, I'd recommend installing a high quality manual petcock like a PIngle. They aren't cheap but it beats being stranded with a full tank of fuel in the tank but none in the carb.

Good Luck

My battery light comes on first time out this season kept it charged through winter 2011 deluxe after i shut bike down battery light stays on and slowly fades out bike seems well charged open wire?

Not an open wire. What is the charge on the battery. Sounds like maybe the voltage regulator is defective and the battery is draining back through it possibly. Disconnect it or pull the main fuse and see what happens then.

2009 hertiage can u just change the tail light bulb not the harness

This is what your tail light bulb looks like:

The only difference is, it might be clear, or red.
Check it out before buying a new one.

It just pulls out of the socket, new on pushes in.

Put in new alternator,shows charging and battery holding charge but battery light stays on. You start car and light stays off for about 15 to 30 sec. than on.

The alt should charge at around fourteen volls , any ways, yogi need to put another battery. A weak alt will kill a good bat.and vise versa

I have a 1988 hertiage softail that bought new. The battery is 3 mo.old and has a good charge in it.I have no power from the switch. I replaced the main breaker under the seat and the ignition switch....

The first thing to do is clean and grease the battery terminals, and then use a test light to move along the circuit. But I believe there are 2 fusible links next, of 80 and 40 amps. But perhaps the breaker replaces that, unless you missed one.

However, you should not replace things like breakers and switches unless you have verified they are bad. That means you don't replace anything unless there is power in but no power out.
You have not used a test light to verify where there is power yet.

You need to check every single connection in the chain. Start with the battery terminals, go to the breaker, then to the fuses, then the starter, then the ignition switch, etc., and finish with the chassis ground.
