Question about 2004 Harley Davidson XL 883 Sportster
Posted by Anonymous on
I am not understanding how it starts with the battery out of the holder. It will keep running without the battery connected if the charging system is providing sufficient voltage and current for the ignition system, yes, because it is not a field excited alternator but a permanent magnet type. If you explain what you mean as above I may be able to advise you further.

Get access to the battery terminal posts, star the bike and set the meter to "Volts DC". Touch the leads to the positive and negative posts and see what the meter reads. If the voltage is between 13-15 volts then the bike is charging, if thats the case the bike is charging but your battery is hooped. Start with that and if the bike isnt charging then write back again for trouble shooting instructions.

Check the stator and regulator and make sure it is not over charging the battery and therefor burning it up. Should be putting out 12 - 14 volts
