Take the spark plugs out of the engine and see if the engine turns over then. If it does but the engine will not turn over with the plugs in it, have the battery checked. Never assume a battery is good because it's not very old.

If the engine will not turn over with the spark plugs out, it sounds like may have serious problems. In this case, I'd consult a professional mechanic.

You can repost if you find out more information for us to work from. Good Luck

Sporster speedometer keeps cutting out


First thing to check and is usually the problem is the Negative battery terminal on the battery. When they come loose they will start arcing as well and will build up carbon on the battery connection and the connectors hooked to it. If it is loose, check and remove any carbon build up on them (chip, sand, file, grind, etc. etc.).

You don't mention any other symptoms so I will assume the electronics, ie speedometer, tach, and such, did't start acting weird? If that is the case check your grounds these old rigid mount sportsters are known for vibrating the grounds loose.

2003 883 sportster wont start


What u are describing is typical of a faulty ignition system, but could also be a fuel problem. I check by removing the aircleaner and rotating the throttle. If u see a nice spray of fuel, thats probably not the problem. Check for a spark at the plugs. I can explain how if you need me to. If you cant see a good spark, U have an electrical problem. I had a crank position sensor go bad on me. Dont do what I did (replaced the battery, ignition, and regulator as part of my diagnosis procedure)
