Question about Harley Davidson XLH Sportster 883 Hugger Motorcycles
I suspect the battery. Take the battery out and take it somewhere that they can do a "load test" on the battery. It's never good to just let a battery sit. When you let the battery sit without a "smart charger" on it, the charge bleeds down and the plates in the battery start to deterioate. Then, when you try to get it back by charging, you find that one or two cells are bad. The the bad cells will also prevent the votage from a jump starter from going through as well. Check the battery first, if it's 3 to 4 years old, it probably needs replacing anyway. Most motorcycle batteries don't last much longer than that unless they are premium grade batteries.
