Question about 2007 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Ask your mechanic,
noises are the most complex of all problems
and nobody here can hear them.
my wild useless guess, is air cleaner leaks.
use a rubber to ear, move hose, find source.

Start with charging and load testing the battery. Then test the stator, to test the stator on the bottom of the right down tube is the plug that goes from the stator to the voltage regulator. With a multi meter, read the voltage from the stator, I forget the exact values but as you rev the motor the voltage should climb if it dosn't your stator is bad. If the stator is good take a reading again with the motor running at the battery cables, again I forget the exact value but you should have a steady reading at the battery, if it isn't and fluctuates it is bad.

I have had the same problem. Been throught two batteries, new cables,checked the fuses 999 times. It only starts every now and then. You must take a wrench and get the positve cable just right and it will start for a week or so then back to the same thing. You would think after building motors for so long Harley could at least make a bike that starts.
