Sounds like your voltage regulator is faulty and over charging your battery and cooking it.

Have an auto electrician check the voltage charge on your bike - it should be a relative cheap fix and will stop you replacing batteries

    Have lost several batteries on my 1991 FXR. Voltage regulator that does not shunt to ground fixed my problem.

When Harleys 'burn' batteries, there are two possibilities. One is simply replace the regulator. The other is the regulator and stator. Stators can fail (they can go short to ground internally) and damage the regulator. If you do not check the stator and it is faulty and replace the regulator, the new regulator will fail. A simple resistance check will check the stator. You should have an open circuit from any of the terminals to engine chassis. Also you should have a very low resistance between any of the terminals, less than .1 of an ohm. This applies to single and three phase stators (2 wire / 3 wire).

If the Master Cylinder BORE size is the same as the bore size required for the caliper you want to replace it with, then YES, you can use your existing Master Cylinder.

Why is my battery burning up in my 1993 fxr


Most likely cause would be a faulty voltage regulator. You need to get it on a battery/charge testing machine,bring the revs up to 2000 rpm,and with a fully charged battery,it should not charge any higher than 14.0 volts at 2000 rpm.

Have 93 fxr. Starter turns motor over with spark plugs out but will not with plugs in. Put voltage meter on battery 12.50 volts push starter button drops to 4-5 volts. Have installed new piston rings 300km...


Take your battery out and have it load tested. It sounds like you have one or more cells shorting out under a load. A 12 volt battery is made up of six 2 volt cells. The output voltage and current delivery of a battery with shorted cells in it depends on how many cells are shorted and where they are located within the battery. This is the most obvious thing causing the problem. If the starter is drawing the battery down that low, it must be drawing a tremendous amount of current and it would probably be burning the battery cables with that large of a current draw. If you have 300km on a top end job with no problems, I doubt you have a problem with that. A problem in that area would have shown up well before now. Although, a fresh top end will put more strain on the starter and battery due to the increase in compression. Check the battery first.

Good Luck

Hello i have a 1993 fxr it starts runs after a few moments it rattles loses power .does that for few seconds then power starts again. It does this on and off


Check you ground cable and all ground connections. If they are corrosive or loose this can cause the problem that you state is happening.
