Question about 2004 Harley Davidson FLHRS - FLHRSI Road King Custom
Well, you didn't give a lot of information as to what your problem is so I'll assume that your battery is not staying charged. The first thing you want to do is have the battery tested. Take it out and take it to an auto parts house and ask them to load test the battery for you. If the battery test good, put it back in the bike and make sure it is fully charged.
Now, using a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) connect the meter across the battery terminals. Red meter lead to positive post and black meter lead to negative. Put the meter in DC volts, 20 volt or higher range. Start the engine. The meter should rise rather quickly to 14.5 - 14.8 volts.
If it doesn't reach the desired voltage, disconnect the voltage regulator at the connector where it plugs into the engine case. There will be two metal contacts down in the connector in the engine case. Put your meter in AC volt, 50 volt or higher range. Make sure your meter is in AC volts for this test. Start the engine and put the meter leads to the metal contacts, one to each contact. It makes no difference which goes to which since you dealing with AC voltage. You should read 30 or more volts with the engine at a high idle. If you do, your regulator is bad. If you don't read at least 30 volts, you stator is bad.
