Question about Harley Davidson FXSTB Night Train Motorcycles

2 Answers

I have a 2000 Harley Davidson FXSTB Night train and whenever the bike sits for more than 5 or 6 hours the battery doesn't have enough charge left to crank the battery. The bike charges while running all the lights are plenty bright and they don't dim or anything like that. I have been through several batteries so I don't think it's that what could it be? Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. thanx

START WITH THE IGNITION OFF and get a meter and test for voltage.
If for instance you went past off to PARK, you would expect the parking lights to be on, and there would be voltage at that fuse, When the ignition is fully off, there shouldn't be voltage at any fuse.
If there is, start finding out what to, and why.

It could be one of a few things.
try checking the volts on the battery straight after a ride, then again 5 hours later to see if it has gone down. then try the same again with the battery disconnected to see if you get the same result.
if its the same volts then something on the bike is draining it.
your battery should read anywhere over 12.5v if its ok when charged, anything less and its new battery time.
a worn starter motor can also zap a lot of power and not turn it over enough.
hope this helps... tony.

Redlight code for harley davidson 2000 night train


A red light on in the clock usually means over charging. You cannot reset it. It will go off when the fault is rectified. Go into diagnostics and post the results to get more help. If it is on the dash, then you have no oil pressure. Do not run engine this is checked out.

On my 87 fxstc my right trun signal lights are iluminated but wont flash but the left side does


Check to see if the right wattage bulbs are fitted. If the wattage is low, then the bulbs will not flash. Harleys require 21 watt bulbs for the flashers.

2000 FXSTB Night Train: drive belt broke...


Not a common problem, but not unusual either. You'll need a new belt $100 plus, and a lot has to be removed form the bike to replace the broken one. Rear tire Rear fork outer primary maybe inner primary (can't remember)
Sorry
