Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide
I could have sworn I answered this question the other day. It sounds like you have a bad battery. Remove the battery and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them if they would load test the battery for you. Usually when a battery has good connections and does this, it's either badly discharged or a cell is shorting internally resulting in a battery of less than 12 volts. Depending on which cell shorts, the battery voltage could drop as low as six volts.
If the battery checks good, make sure all your connections are good at the battery and starter. Look under the "electrical panel cover" just to the rear of the coil cover and find the starter relay. Turn the ignition switch on and press the start button while holding this relay. It should click once whenever you press the button.
If it does this, look at the end of the starter from the right side of the bike. The end plate of the solenoid is shaped like a pentagon. At the top of this plate, there is a single wire connection. Unplug this wire and connect the red lead of a Digital Volt Ohm meter to the wire. Ground the black lead of the meter and put the meter's function switch in the DC volts, 20 volt range. Turn on the ignition switch and press the start button. You should read battery voltage. If so, your starter is bad.
