Question about Harley Davidson FLHRC Road King Classic Motorcycles
If your engine is stock, it sounds like a cell shorting in your battery. Take the battery to an automotive parts house and ask them to load test it for you. Sometimes a battery will appear good and seem to have a lot of "juice" in it but when you put a load on it, a cell will short out making the battery effectively a 10 volt (or less) battery. It will smoke your battery cables too. If it is a new battery, it may just not have enough cold cranking amp (CCA) to turn your engine.
Check your connections on the starter and the ground connection at the frame. Also there is a large braided ******** the underside of your bike to connect the engine and transmission together for a good ground if your Road King is one of the earlier models.
To check for an engine problem, take your spark plugs out and see how the engine turns over. If it turns freely, the engine is not the problem.
