Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHR Road king
Another (slight) possibility is there wasn't a perfect connection between the battery terminal and the post of the battery.
By removing and replacing the battery, maybe you removed a little "gunk" inbetween the connection, and retightened everything up good.
Finally, the "check engine" light for 3-4 seconds "might" just be a glitch.
The best check is to pull the error codes (DTCs) and see what (if) the computer stored any errors.

too many variables !
Firstly check battery under load ! any battery place or auto electrician can so it usually free!
do this before replacing any thing else!
make sure all connections are clean & tight
if battery is ok get them to check the charge rate on bike! its a simple test or you can do it with a volt meter they are only cheap to buy!

If the bike is losing ALL power, I'm talking about dash lights, headlight, tail light, ALL lights, it's probably something tripping the main breaker. The breaker should be located either under the seat or behind the trianglular panel on the right side of the bike. I'd look for a frayed wire near the starter or around the rear cylinder due to the head in that area.

Take the spark plugs out of the engine and see if the engine turns over then. If it does but the engine will not turn over with the plugs in it, have the battery checked. Never assume a battery is good because it's not very old.
If the engine will not turn over with the spark plugs out, it sounds like may have serious problems. In this case, I'd consult a professional mechanic.
You can repost if you find out more information for us to work from. Good Luck
