Heck all connections especially the one thru the motor to the regulator-check battery to make sure levels are good and have it load tested

I have a 2002 VRSCA. I have put a new battery in my bike the last two years. If I put it on the trickle it'll start up a few times, however if I leave it off the bike will not start again. I took it for...

cant test the regulator.....test the alternator...stator and roter make up the alternater...cant test the roter...its a magnet......test stator by unplugging it and put a test lead in 2 of the 3 conector terminals and then rotate 2 more times to test all...1-2,,,,1-3,,,,,2,3.......should get about 40 VAC...volts ac.....i bet one test will be low....below 20....replace stator...if test is do the same test but use ground instead of one of the lead terminals...check with ohms/ long as all readings are OL...replace regulator...

Battery not charging on 2003 super glide

Hi Anonymous, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12 volts or better after charging.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to:
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor. Good luck

I have a 2003 Dyna Wide Glide. My battery will not charge. The voltage regulator is new, and when I load tested the battery, it was only putting out 12.51 volts at all RPM levels. I then tested the stator...

If you had your meter in AC VOLTS, and you only got three volts out of the stator, it's bad. Check for a shorted stator but putting your meter in OHMS R X 1. Put one probe on the engine case and then the other to one of the contacts and then to the other. You should read infinite ohms. 12.5 volts is the normal reading of a fully charged battery. I never do the shorted stator test. Why? If the stator is not putting out at least 30 volts at a high idle, it makes no difference if the stator is shorted or what, it needs replacing. That's the way I look at it.

Good Luck

Battery won't charge when riding is it my voltage

If the cells are dead in the battery, it will never charge. You can go to Autozone and they will test it for free. The question would be if the battery is dead, why?? Are you just starting to ride after last season? How long has it been sitting? If sitting a while, the battery may just have died to age. If you are driving it all year, have the alternator/charging system checked

Battery good, regulator good, stator good, battery won't charge

you have caused a wireing fult thats all, it likely to be a bad earth on the bars or you may have blown a fuse by shorting some thing out when you were doing the work start checking the wireing out with a meeter start from the regulator you should have volts from there back to the battery check for a main fuse as well

D08 code on 2002 dyna

D08 means over-voltage. Your bike is over charging and will cook your battery. You regulator will have to be checked as well as your stator. If you have to drive to a dealership, keep your revs down as low as possible, at least not above 2000 revs. Do not drive more than a few miles or battery may get damaged. The letters simply mean set. So you have D08SEt which means D08 set.

Testing stator

with multi-tester hooked up to the wires. Set to ohm or volt reading and see if it spikes when you turn over bike

I think I have a bad stator on my 2002Harley Dyna

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!

Battery slowly discharges on my 2002 FXD when engine runns

So you're running off the battery instead of the charging system, check all your wires from the alternator to the regulator/rectifier for open connections or shorts to the frame. You could have a bad rectifier if it's separate from the regulator, you may also have a bad alternator, if you've got a multi-meter check the AC voltage between the ground and each of the three wires coming from the alternator (usually yellow). They should all be about the same, and measure over 16 V, increasing with RPMs. Hope that helps
