Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide
It sounds like you have a charging system problem. Charge the battery to full charge. Then connect a digital volt ohm meter to the battery. Red meter lead goes to the positive battery post and the black meter lead goes to the negative battery post. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT RANGE or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. The meter should read 14.5-15.0 volts. If not, proceed to the the alternator test.
To test the alternator, find the plug on lower left front of the engine where the voltage regulator plugs in. Unplug the plug. Look inside the plug in the case and you'll see two metal connectors. This is where we're going to test the output of the alternator.
Put the meter's function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 VOLT scale. Insert one meter lead into each of the metal connectors. Since we're measuring AC voltage, it makes no difference which lead goes to what connector. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. You should read 30 volts or higher.
If the alternator reads 30 volts or higher but the battery test fails, replace the regulator. If the alternator test fails, you need a new stator installed on your bike.
