Hi, Djones and the usual suspects are:

2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.

CJ = XL 883C
CA = XLH 883
CA = XLH 1200
CE = XL 883H
CG = XL 1200C

How to drain a 2004 sportster 1200 c gas tank


The easiest way would probably get a cheap gas siphon hose (you know, one with a hand bulb you squeeze to get the siphon started). What I do is cut a coat hanger open and stretch it straight and then cut a piece a little longer than the distance from the take cap to the very back of the tank. Stick this into the hose to keep it straight (cheap siphon hoses have a tendency to bend and curve away from the bottom, back of the tank. Stick the hose with the rod in it to the lowest part of the take and the other end into some gas container that will hold all the gas you have in the tank and start pumping the bulb of the siphon.

Where is the reserve fuel switch


You have fuel injection? If so, no reserve AFAIK. In the carb version, the gastank fuel petcock is the fuel reserve switch, the lever's normal position is straight down, reserve position is straight up, off is sideways.
