I have the same problem with my 2008 King. Have you run the on board diagnostics to see if there are fault codes stored? I am starting with the air filter. I took it off and started the bike and as usual it started Ok then I let it run and stopped the engine. Normally at this point it won't start first time but with the filter off it did, so I am changing that. If this doesn't work I will be looking at the Oxygen sensor in the exhaust system as this might be faulty. I had a 05 King before this one and the sensor moved when the throttle was moved but on this 08 model it doesn't and as it sits in the hot air of the exhaust and my starting problems only occur when the bike is hot, it might be that. I'll try the simple first in accordance with Ochims razer principle.

Maybe. It had nothing to do with the battery The problem just acured at the same time? Try tracing the wires then try replace the gauge then might be the transmission?

My 2006 road king Harley won't start after riding over a curb

You didn't describe the "click"

A series of rapid clicks means a low battery, or a bad (usually ground) connection, like if you crunched/abraded a wire along the lower frame when you drive over a curb.

A single, loud click indicates its a bad starter relay, about a $12 part:

My drill stopped running, the battery is charged,but wont turn. started only working in certain positions then quit alltogether

It sounds like the switch but check the brushes on the motor and the connections from the switch to the motor.

I got a road king classic 2007 and it has never been started, it has sat in storage. What do you suggest I do first?

drain the gas and replace with new, do an oil change and check the levels of the primary case and gear box. check your battery hopefully it was disconnected and has been on a battery tender or you have a new one. check the operation of the clutch cable and brakes and lube them if necessary. check tires for cracking and pressure. Some of this may not be necessary if the bike was properly stored and maintained.

2007 Road King Classic. When start switch depressed mothing happens, not even starter click. Battery good, no fuses blown, all electrical works except start

I'd guess either the "Run/Start" switch in in the "stop" position, (don't laugh, i've done it myself), you have a security system problem, or your starter relay is bad. The relay is a one cube looking device that acts a control circuitry for your starter. Usually they are under the seat but Harley has started moving things around so much lately that I can't keep up with them. It is going to be back near your starter somewhere. When you find it, turn the switch on and depress the start button. You should feel a noticable "click" if you are holding onto the relay. Now, look at the end of your starter from the right side of the bike. You'll see the end plate (pentagon shaped plate with three screws) with a small wire plugged into a connector at the top of the plate. Disconnect the wire and stick a test light or a volt meter into the wire side of the plug, not the starter side. Turn on the switch and press the start button. The test light should light up or the meter should show battery voltage. If it doesn't, you relay could be bad. Almost any auto parts store should have one.

Harley won't start.

A harley AGM battery are usaully good for three to five years the best thing to do is have the battery load tested.Now as far as your problem now depending on the batterys state of charge the solenoid will click or not.Because you store it alot you should keep a trickle charger on the battery

Headlights brighten and dim when accelerating, 2003 Road King

Your heading for Stator problems 'ol son,...........
Before long, the engine is going to start coughing & spluttering, eventually it will stop. Let it sit awhile, if the battery in good shape, it might start again, but it won't last long before it stops again. Last time it happened to me, I was on an 800klm long highway, just on dusk, turned on the lights, (custom bike, actually has a headlight switch) got about 2ks & it died. Ever spent the night, freezing cold on a highway no one uses?
Get your charging system checked A.S.A.P!
