Bike won't start

Do any lights come on when you turn the key? Do you need to pull in the clutch leaver to start? Make sure engine kill switch is in run position, Make sure you have petrol if more than 2 months old change it. Check main and ignition fuses are OK in fact check all fuses while your at it. Make sure your battery is OK your charger may say full but that does not mean the battery has enough oomph to start the bike.
How long ago since it last ran OK does anything come to mind when you stopped it then. Times of no run = times of problems.

I own a 2009 street glide, when i go to start the bike the engine light will come on sometimes it will go off sometimes it wont, when the light go's off and i start the bike the engine light will come on...

Try new battery, or try load test and drain test, the efi and starter drain the batt on start up causing check engine light, mention this to your dealer as they do no about the issue. you can also put in a switch to turn your headlight off if you have auto on, also bad earth can bring on the check light.

XV1100 Starter does not engage when trinig to start engin

sorry didn't actually see the post before my first comment, if it is only when the bike is warm or hot but not over heated I would suspect the same thing, faulty starter. "replace or rebuild"

I would assume you treat it like a car & check for codes
& diagnose the same,using the proper trouble charts.

When slowing down Batt light comes on and loss of power steering. Had alternator and batt checked and came out good. this is an intermitant problem.

is the belt stretched out! or the tensioner is weak, and not holding enough pressure on drive belt. if in doubt replace the belt. there should be marks on tensioner for the belt tension. if battery and alternater are ok. then it has to be the belt, tensioner, are the battery connection clamps, clean and tight! good-day !

Unable to get starter to turn.have rplcd batt.cables.rplcd starter relay,solenoid,starter also mostly rewired added a ground cable to solenoid from frame.does also have an added pushbutton...

This is a possibility. The header says you're working on a 1979 XLH 1000cc Sportster. This is not a 250cc bike and it takes a good battery to start and engine of this size. I've never seen a CCA rating on the battery requirement in a service manual but it does say that the battery should be capable of at least 32 Ahr.

Good Luck

Batt. not ataying charged

Check output of battery when bike is idling.
If still 11 volt, then your charger, which is the magneto is faulty or the wire is broken from it to your battery. If the charge varies when you test when engine dead to engine idling, wire is fine. Should be 13 to 13.5 volt when idling if magneto is ok.

1998 Triumph Daytona T595,Batt died now Check Engine is on.

ok, first off is that when you "jump a bike" dont jump by car with engine running this can fry major componets second you can try the reboot but I do think you damaged one of the parts

Dash lights

Check engine and battery light are supposed to be off when the engine is running,that indicates the vehicle has no codes,and that the charging system and battery are ok.When you turn the key to run,but not start,they should light up for a couple of seconds,just to indicate that they are capable of functioning.
