If you are sure that the batt has a full charge and you are saying it will not even turn over, you sould start out by checking your batt cables. It is very common for the neg batt cable to vibrate loose. Also while your at it check for any corrosion.

The oil light is on because the engine isn't running to build any oil pressure. Sounds like the new battery may need to be charged fully. After the battery is fully charged, and the 'clicking' noise is back (or not) check the battery connections for corrosion--especially at the positive terminal. If ok, you should get one solid click when trying to start. If ok, but still not starting, jump the two heavy terminals of the solenoid (click source) with a heavy wire which should bump the starter motor. If nothing, then the starter motor needs service--usually the brushes inside fail to make contact with the armature due to brush wear, or weak springs. Most dealers will likely only sell you a new starter--no internal parts. Hope this helps!

Won't start


Make sure the battery is fully charged. the harley's will not start unless the battery can supply more that 10.5 volts with a load. to check this have the battery on your bike with the headlights on. you should read above 12.4volts with the lights on. and above 10.5v with the lights on while cranking the motor. its a really rew bike so can't be anything major

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.

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.

New battery on new bike,it kills the batterys in 2 days


Either you have a dead short in your wireing or your battery is not charging fully. Use a volt meter your battery will have 12 volts start the bike and it should read 13 plus then take it up to 2000 rpm above idle anyway it should read 14 plus. If you dont have these numbers then you have a stator or regulator problem or both. You may be geting a slight charge when running but not enough to keep the battery peaked out.

DId you check or rather take the charging rate, how do you know if its charging or not?
You may have to replace the rectifier.
But first test its charging rate.
