Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles
I wouldn't think your problem be with the voltage regulator if the battery is being charged to 13 volts. The problem seems to be too big and engine with too small a battery. You have increased the size of your engine by quite a bit but you still run the same standard battery. Even with compression releases, you're turning a larger displacement engine. You need a battery that has a higher CCA rating (cold cranking amps). You may need to go to a "Big Boar" or "Odessy" battery. Twelve volts should be enough voltage but the current is the question.
Do this. With a fully charged battery, put the voltmeter across the battery. Read the voltage WHILE you start the bike. Does the voltage drop below twelve volts. If so, the battery is the problem. If not, the problem is somewhere else, maybe you need a stronger starter like a Spyke or something.
