Question about Motorcycles
I have a freshly charged battery but still can't get any power when I turn the ignition on to my 2001 road king
The alternator could be draining the battery or the cables may not be connected right.

01road king..probably have 30 to 40 thousand on it...Sounds like cam chain tensioner..about the only thing that will go wrong with your bike. I will assume you have oil etc in it...If you have not been running your bike stupid then nothing mechanical will usually brake on a Harley. Once again I assume its stock. You don't have an oil light on so I'll put my money on cam chain tensioner has exploded or is about to.

FLHP & FLIPI, one is carb the other is fuel injected.
The fuel filter is inside the tank on both carb and FI models.
From what I have read, there may have been a recall on this model year, where they replace the fuel filter and clean or replace the injectors.
A quick call to an HD dealer service department would let you know positively. And cost nothing.

Check the main fuse.It is a flat fuse (30a) and plugs into the top of the starter solenoid. There should be a spare fuse on the rubber solenoid mount. Remove the fuse out.Then wait for 5 minutes and then reinsert the fuse back.Its on the start relay near battery on red cable, two screws hold it in.The fuse box should be located under the seat by the battery.The fuse IS required in order to start it, because the current that runs to the starter button and then to the solenoid coil DOES run through the fuse. So if the fuse is dead, your starter will be dead. ------------So check the fuse if its bad, blown, shorted then replace the fuse.But if the fuse is fine then remove it for 5 minutes then reinsert it.----------
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Check first the FUSES, clean the terminals of the fuse and replace if already blown.
The intermitent location of the speedo means a trickle of voltage going into the system. The malfunction came when your charging the battery w/o removing the terminals.
Check and clean the harness connection.
Tell me if there is some more problem.

Easiest way is to either remove the seat to gain access to the battery or use the Battery Tender harness, if the bike is equipped with one. Use a multiimeter, set to DC volts. Place the positive meter electrode to the positive terminal of the battery or tender harness. Place the other electrode to negative terminal. At idle the bike should have 12.8-13.2 volts DC. Rev the bike to approx. 2000 rpm. Meter reading should be around 13.8-14.2 volts DC. If you don't get close to these readings, the charging system isn't working. Easiest way to check to see if your stator is burned-remove the clutch (derby) cover and smell the oil inside the primary housing. If it stinks, your stator is bad.
