Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom
A bad battery does this. I'd take the battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts store. Ask them to "load test" the battery. More than likely, this is the problem.
However, when you connect the battery back up, connect the positive side first. Make sure the switch and everything else is OFF. When you go to connect the negative battery cable, see if you notice a spark. If your bike has a computer onboard to run fuel injection, you see a small spark but it'll be a very small one. If you get a large spark, you do indeed have something pulling a lot of current when it's not supposed to.
