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

Electrical Problem


Your alternator/generator must be not working. If it works, it should be able to recharge the battery when your bike is running.

I have a 1973 harley davidson sportster xlh 1000 with drag pipes i just bought it, but it ran great it sat for 3 months now it pops and backfires and is have a oily mist from the air cleaner and i dont...


popping and backfiring sounds like a lean fuel mixture, caused by the wonderful gas we are getting these days. try draining fuel system, put in fresh fuel. the oily substance is coming from the crankcase vents located within the air filter cavity, a lot of bikes do that, ck. oil level not over full.

Make sure your battery cables are tight at both ends. The ground connection on these bikes has a habit of vibrating loose.

I have a 883 harley davidson sporster, was riding the bike and road over a bump and bike shut down and won't start


I'd check the battery first. I've seen the post break loose from the batteries in many Sportsters and leave them dead on the road. I've only seen this happen once on a Big Twin. Why? I have no idea. If nothing on the bike works, this may be the problem. If everything else works but it just won't start, I need more information. Does the starter engage and the engine turn over?

The battery that's in my 1993 883 Sportster is not the correct one. The terminals are not in the right place. Does any one know what the proper battery group is for this application...?


I tried the pep boys route of getting a battery...i would have had to put the acid in the battery and charge it.i wasted like $70 and couldnt use it. i went to Harley and bought their gel battery for i think around $80 , that was in feb. 2008!!though i ride my bike daily,i run 2 sets of blue l.e.d. lights and im still using the same battery. ive got over 4 years so far and it was charged and ready when i bought it!!

Bike is dead. battery ok. not even a headlight???


The fuses are probably behind the trianglular plate on the right side of the bike. It may be that the bike has a security system on it as well and something has tripped it preventing it from being started.

1995 Harley Sportster won't turn over.


sounds like the battery has dropped a cell,it will still have power but not enough to turn the bike over properly,harley atarters use a lot of current to turn over so a slightly weak battery will cause all sorts of grief,hope this helps...cheers

New battery on new bike,it kills the batterys in 2 days


Either you have a dead short in your wireing or your battery is not charging fully. Use a volt meter your battery will have 12 volts start the bike and it should read 13 plus then take it up to 2000 rpm above idle anyway it should read 14 plus. If you dont have these numbers then you have a stator or regulator problem or both. You may be geting a slight charge when running but not enough to keep the battery peaked out.
