You must first eliminate the battery as a problem- charge it fully and have an auto parts store do a load test for you-that's usually free. If it passes, then you must start trying to isolate each circuit to seek shorts in the system.

Either something is draining the battery or the battery is no longer able to hold a charge. There should be water covering the top of the plates inside the battery. Is there? Most bike batteries are only good for two years. How old is your battery? These are retorical questions. Please rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: how to drain a gas tank on a harley 1200 sportster

Evidently, you have the vacuum operated petcock on your bike. If you have a hand operated vacuum pump, you can unplug the vacuum line from the back of the petcock and apply vacuum with the pump.

Otherwise, use a large funnel under the petcock and loosen the petcock tank fitting until the fuel starts to flow out. The funnel will catch the gasoline and direct it into a gasoline can.

Good Luck
Steve

Looking for the oil drain plug and the transmission drain plug on a 2001 Harley Davidson XL 1200 Custom


Usually the oil drain is one the left side of the bike somewhere below the battery. Look for a hose that has a plug in it or one that connects to the frame. Harley had moved this drain so many times in the past that it's difficult to keep up with where the oil drain is located. The transmission and primary share the same oil. To drain it, find the drain plug on the bottom of the primary just below the clutch. Pour the new oil in the primary chain inspection hole of the primary.

Good Luck
