My 2005 Heritage Softail was running fine. I shut itr off for a few minutes and when I turned the switch on I had NO electrics and my speedometer was making noise. Any suggestions


Look under the seat,at the bottom of the tank,and check the ground connections. Also check battery connections. If all this is good,remove the fairing,and check the wiring harness that runs across the fairing braces. They are prone to rubbing the wires and shorting them out.

On the older models, you had to remove the large bolts on the right and left side of the seat completely. Then lift the rear of the seat and pull to the rear. There is a tongue on the underside of the front of the seat that fits into the frame.

Need to change my starter on 2005 heritage softail classic, need some instructions


First, disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. Then, drain the oil from your primary. Remove the floor boards, shifter or anything else you need to remove in to remove the outer primary cover. Remove the outer primary cover. Remove the small bolt holding the starter jackshaft in and remove the jackshaft. There is a coupler that connects the jackshaft to the starter motor. If it comes out with the jackshaft, mark it so that you know which way it goes back in.

Now, on the right side of the bike, remove the exhaust system or whatever might be in the way of getting the starter off. Remove the bolts holding the oil tank but don't remove the tank. All you need is a little room that you get by lifting the tank up a bit. There are two large bolts holding the start onto the inner primary. Remove these two bolts and unplug the single wire going to the solenoid and the battery cable from the starter. Now, you can work the starter out from under the oil tank and off of the bike.

Good Luck

How to remove battery from heritage softail 1993


The battery is under the seat inside the "horseshoe" oil tank. Remove the seat by removing the large bolts that take a 3/8" Allen or Hex key type wrench. Lift the rear of the seat and pull it to the rear. You'll see the battery once you get the seat off.

Good Luck

Is there a easy place to hook up battery tender on 2005 hd heritage softail other than removing the seat.


When I had my Softail, I used the battery wiring harness that came with the battery charger. It had a plug on it that could be tucked out the way, but readily available when needed.
I use the same setup on my 99 FLHT.
It looks like this....

Getting seat off 2005 Heritage Classic


There is a large bolt on either side of the seat down on the side. It uses a large hex key to remove them. Take these two bolts out, lift the seat and pull to the rear. That should do it.
