Battery cut off switch

I own a 1995 flstc soft tail heritage classic.when it warms up then you park it the battery drains,not when its cold.took it to the local harley shop for repairs.they said it was the voltage regulator and replaced it.worked ok for a couple of weeks but now I have the same problem.thought I would install a battery cut off switch.i would take it back to them but I have a feeling they aren't going to admit they did anything wrong and it's going to cost me another $400 bucks.whats your thoughts on a battery cut off switch until I can figure this problem out or if you can suggest a fix.thanks in advance for your expert advice.

Hi Anonymous, with the ignition switch in the OFF position, disconnect the battery negative cable. Set your multimeter to the milliamp scale and hook it between the battery negative post and the negative cable, it should read no more than 3 milliamps 10 if you have a radio. Any reading higher and you have excessive draw on the battery. Start by pulling fuses or disconnecting circuit breakers one by one and watch for any meter changes to isolate the offending circuit.

SOURCE: the wires going to the voltage regulator keep burning up.

Common problem with poor quality parts, the regulator is the problem, the generator is working other wise you would not have fried the wiring, you answered your own question. someone telling porkies to get more money from unsuspecting client?
The regulator controls the voltage not the generator, the generator only supplys the voltage it cannot overcharge unless the regulator is not working properly, simple!

SOURCE: 1993 Harley Davidson motorcycle (FLSTC). If I

DeJevu! I thought I answered this already. Anyway, I'll do it again. The first thing I'd try is putting new bulbs in the turn signal lights. Use the proper bulb called for in the books. This is a pretty inexpensive test.

Next, you didn't say whether or not it was both sides or just one side that was not blinking. The turn signals are controlled by the turn signal cancelling unit. I'd try to find someone that had a known good unit that would allow me to try the unit to see if that fixed the problem. I say this because the units are expensive. The last one I replaced costs about $150.

Oh yeah, on the Softail, I think the "tilt switch" located in the speedometer is involved in cancelling the turn signals as well. If the switch is stuck in the closed position, it may be cancelling the turn signal as soon as you set it. The switch is not in the circuit for the four way flashers. You'd have to look at a schematic to tell for certain. Sorry, I don't have one for a Softail.

SOURCE: Getting seat off 2005 Heritage Classic

There is a large bolt on either side of the seat down on the side. It uses a large hex key to remove them. Take these two bolts out, lift the seat and pull to the rear. That should do it.

Were do you drain the oil on a 2004 soft tail heritage


underneath the bike on the left side of the oil pan, right at the front edge is a bolt (some look like a allen wrench bolt). Take it out and also take out the oil dipstick to let it flow easier -but before you do it run the bike for about 5 minutes to heat the oil up some.
