Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom Motorcycles

1 Answer

Will not start on with out a push. I need help please!!!

I have a 1976 Harley Davidson Sporster 1200. This is my first Harley and I am lost. It was running slugish and would not start, so I went out and got a new battary and but in it. It started and ran great for a few days then it started acting up again. I have to push start it, it will run fine until I down shift then it will die and you have to push start it again. I checked my voltage and the battary is putting out 22.4 volts, the Genarator is getting 22.4 volt when I put my tester on it and now it will not run long enough to test the genarator to see what it is putting out. Can someone help me please. Thank you,
