Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FXD - FXDI Dyna Super Glide
Battery slowly discharges on my 2002 FXD when the engine is running. The discharge light never comes on. I replaced the voltage regulator and it didn't fix the problem. Batter will charge with a trickle charger. Wanted to ride to Carslile, Pa tomorrow but don't want to get stuck with a dead battery. I tried disconnecting the negative terminal of the battery when the bike was running as a test and the motor died instantly.
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
