Question about 2004 Harley Davidson XL 1200 R Sporster Roadster
Bike would not start .Last year same prob. change the batt.good to go.This year change the batt. but the oil light is now on and its like its killing the starter sillonid just a click.oil was never low ?
The oil light should come on when you turn the key on, then go out when the engine starts. It is NOT an oil level light, it shows PRESSURE.
Your "click" is a bad/corroded connection on the starter terminals , battery terminals, low battery, bad wires, or a defective solenoid. Charge the battery. Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive. Remove the nuts holding the wires to the starter, clean all connections at the starter, frame and battery with a wire brush. Get them CLEAN!! Make sure the big cables are in good shape. If that doesn't fix it, you will need a solenoid. Maybe a starter and/or relay too.
