Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic
I own a 2000 FLSTC with 7300 miles. Rode about 140 miles with several stops along the way. As I was riding I noticed my speedometer stopped working, moments later the red engine light came on and I immediatly pulled over and shut off the bike. a moment later when I tried to start the bike the battery was dead, no lights not even the horn worked. I switched batteries with another rider and pulled the light fuse so as to not drain the battery sooner than what may have occured. I was able to ride another 75 miles to home. When I got home the battery still held a charge and the bike started however I did not ride it. Put a battery charger on the battery and the battery appears to be charged. Also the person that I switched batteries has had no problems with the battery from my bike. It appears the battery was charging while the bike was being ridden. So what could be wrong with my bike. Thanks!
Chek your connection where the alternator plugs into your engine casing & spray it with electrical contact cleaner

Sounds like you either have corroded wires going to your battery or your alternator is not properly charging the battery. Get the bike to an autozone and ask them to put their tester on it.
please mark this as a fizya! thanks
