Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
I'm not sure on this one but unless you've got something that runs all the time, you shouldn't. But, it does sound like you're making a mistake anyway. You should ALWAYS CONNECT THE POSITIVE POST WIRING FIRST. Connect the negative LAST. Disconnect any battery the opposite of this, negative first, positive last.
The reason for this is primarily so you don't strike an arc while removing the battery and having a battery blow up in your face. I know from experience, a battery will blow up. When they're in a discharged state, they 're full of hydrogen gas, a flammable gas. One little spark with a small hydrogen leak, bang, your eyes are full of sulfuric acid.
If you installing a new battery and connect the negative first, a slip of the wrench and you've got a hole in your oil tank. Not something to end your day with.
So, disconnect your negative first, connect your negative last.
If your bike is computer controlled, you may be seeing the arc of the required current to hold the memory. Like I said, I'm not really sure on this one.
