Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
When I turn the key I get all my lights ok ,but when I engage the starter I hear a "electrical "sound and I loose all power. Its like I have no battery power. I have a full 12 volts at the battery. It was suggested to by a new battery or a battery tender. Also check for loos wire connections. I have a 2006 Harley 1200C.
This is my first bike and I would like to get more riding time.
There IS Positively a loose connection. What you are experiencing is a draw situation, when you require low amperage everything works normally, when you require high amperage (As when using the starter) it creates a draw higher than the connection can handle. Remove the seat and side covers and while trying to crank the engine carefully look at all the connections to see one that is hot or smoking. Good Luck.
