Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
Check the output of your voltage regulator. To do this, use a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Connect the red meter lead to the positive terminal and the black meter lead to the negative terminal. Put the meter's function switch in the "DC volts, 20 volt or higher range". Start the bike up and bring it to a fast idle. You should be reading between 14.5 and 14.8 volts. Any higher and your battery is being overcharged. If this is the case, replace the voltage regulator.
If the voltage is reading correctly, you may have a battery that is about ready to give up the ghost. I'd take it to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test it for me. Usually, they'll do this at no charge. If the battery is over two years old, it's possible that it's getting ready to fail.
