Hi Blaborde63, perform the following tests:
1. Fill acid type batteries to proper levels.
2. Charge battery overnight at 1-2 amps you need 12.5 volts or better after charging.
3. Hook up battery positive cable, then with your multimeter on the milliamp scale connect one lead to the negative battery post and the other lead to the ground cable. Meter should read 3 milliamps or less, 10 milliamps with a radio, 15 milliamps with radio and CB. If your meter reads higher you need to isolate the circuit by pulling fuses and circuit breakers one at a time and observe meter for drop in aprerage then get out your test light and track down the short in that circuit.
3. Make sure all connections are clean and tight especially the negative cable at both ends.
4. Hook up volt meter to battery and start engine, if meter falls below 9.5 v while cranking replace battery.
5. With engine running at 3600 RPM battery should read 14.3-14.7 volts if not continue tests.
6. Unplug voltage regulator from alternator at crankcase by front of primary cover.
7. To test voltage regulator go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8EjV0IjW9Q
8. With ohm meter, one lead grounded, touch alternator pin meter should read infinity, if not replace stator.
9. With ohm meter, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read 0.1 to 0.2 ohms on 1989 and later models. 0.2 to 0.4 ohms 1988 and earlier models, if not replace stator.
10. With volt meter set on AC scale, both leads touching alternator pins meter should read
16 to 20 volts AC for every 1000 RPM'S 1989 and later and 19 to 26 volts AC for every 1000 RPMS. If not replace rotor.

2004 sportster, engine light comes on then goes off. 12,000 miles on bike. notable; when startimg it acts like it's not going to turn over but then always does, battery is 2 years old. could this just be a...


engine light may mean change or add oil or airfilter is dirty.make sure all hoses are still hooked up.The pause befor starting could be the battery but is more likely the start relay solenoid or the starter brushes are worn and may need cleaning or replacing.the brushes wear out and leave their dust in the starter causing the resistance in the starter to get higher over time.(slow to start spinning,and acts like battery is weak.)

Won't start


Make sure the battery is fully charged. the harley's will not start unless the battery can supply more that 10.5 volts with a load. to check this have the battery on your bike with the headlights on. you should read above 12.4volts with the lights on. and above 10.5v with the lights on while cranking the motor. its a really rew bike so can't be anything major

I have a 2007 sportster it started just fine this year after about a hour ride it died after doing some checking the battery was low,so i charged it and restarted it,it ran and checked battery a week later...


Check- kill/ignition switch, spark at the plugs, voltage to starter solenoid, fuel in tank, and fuses if applicable. Last but not least the ignition module (right hand side cover).

1995 Harley Sportster won't turn over.


sounds like the battery has dropped a cell,it will still have power but not enough to turn the bike over properly,harley atarters use a lot of current to turn over so a slightly weak battery will cause all sorts of grief,hope this helps...cheers
