Need a small household battery charger for my 2006 HD 1200 custom. Any brand and model recommendation?

Get one of the smart chargers made by Battery Tender or Yuasa. You can get one of those that look like the power supplies for telephones, "wall warts". or you can get multiple units that charge up to six batteries. They come with "pig tail" wires to permanently connect to your battery making it easy to connect up the charge when you get finished riding. They keep you battery fully charged, extend the life of the battery, and won't overcharge it even leaving it connected continously.

Good Luck

Storing 2006 HD 1200 XL Custom for the winter. I have it hooked up to battery tender. Periodically I will take it off the tender when indicator light turns green, indicating battery is fully charged. ...

yes, the charge will bleed off just a bit in two or three days, just enough to reset the battery tender. it shouldn't take but a few minutes before the battery is again "topped off" and the green light comes on. But keep in mind that even with a battery tender, age will eventually get to your battery and it'll go bad. The battery tender extends the life of a battery but it can't extend it forever.

Good Luck

How do you turn the alarm off on the sportster 1200 2007 it keeps running my battery down.

If you are talking about when you park it for long periods of time and it runs your battery down, may I suggest getting a battery tender to keep it charged rather than removing your anti thief device.

How do I remove the battery from my 2003 XL 1200 HD?

Remove the seat.
On the lefthand side of the bike is a small bracket that holds the battery into place.
Looking directly at the battery compartment you will find a small nut attached to the bracket.
Remove this then remove the bracket.
Carefully take of any chrome covers and store them somewhere safe.
Next ease the battery forward and remove the two bolts attaching the battery to the bike.
Finally lift it out carefully as not to damage the bike.

Engine won't turn over

Sounds like a dead battery to me. Hook it up to a good charger not a battery tender.

How do I remove and replace battery on 04 1200 sportster custom?

all you need to do is remove the battery side compartment - pull from the top, and there is a hinge on the bottom. Then unscrew the negative connector -first. Then the positive. Remove the screws for the holder and its done. The new battery will have a moderate charge. You should buy a battery tender and use it to charge it. Also a battery tender will help keep the battery ready to go when you are.
