I need to remove battery from my dyna sport fxdx 2002 , the cover up is fixed with the bolt of cable battery ? it's so difficult to remove the bolt on cable someone can help me ?

On the older models this is how you remove the battery. I doubt Harley has changed much but if they did, this may help.

Remove the seat. Just behind the battery between it and the rear fender on the right side of the bike, there are two bolts. Loosen the bolts but don't take them out. Look inside the frame behind the battery and you'll see a "jack bolt". Turning the bolt counterclockwise will lower the battery tray allowing you to get the top cover and surrounding cover off. Then you can get to the battery connections easily.

I hope this helps.

Battery removal 2002 dyna super glide, after seat removed.

Just inside the frame from the battery, there's a "jackbolt" that raises and lowers the battery tray. Turning the bolt counterclockwise lowers the battery tray and vice versa. You must loosen two bolts on the right side of the frame just behind the battery box between the battery box and the rear fender. Once the battery is lowered, you'll be able to get the top cover off and disconnect the battery cables. Disconnect the negative first when taking the battery out. Connect the negative last when installing the battery.

Good Luck

Regulator..battery in good condition..not charging when running

Check the stator first. Remove the stator to regulator plug on the left side front of the engine. Test for ground short between the pins and engine case. There should be infinate resistance between pin and ground If there is any continuity, replace the stator. If the resistance test is good, check vor voltage. Start the bike and run up to 2000 RPM. There should be at least 60V AC at across the pins. If either of these tests fail, replace the stator. If these tests are good and it isn't charging, replace the regulator. Good luck.

I need to replace the cruise control switches on my 2001 Explorer Sport and don't know how to get to them. Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am concerned about the air bag. Thanks-- Pete

The air bag is completely disabled when the ground cable to the battery is disconnected. Check online for recalls from Ford on your cruise switch also for they had a fire hazard recall a couple years ago
