SOURCE: '07 Sportster 883 Altenator problem

Your sportster does not have an altenator, it has a stator and a voltage regulator. What I would do is LOAD test the battery first. Next I would check my stator. To do this there is a plug on the bottom of the right front down tube, on the lead coming from the stator use a muti meter to measure the voltage with the bike running of course. I forget the exact values but as you rev the engine the voltage should climb. If it dosen't you have a bad stator, if it does the voltage regulator is bad. Pray its the voltage regulator, they cost about the same for the part but is much easier to replace.

SOURCE: I put premium gas in my 07 sportster. It was hard

Your premium probably had ether or alcohol in it, which acted as a solvent for all the old gas gunk in the tank and lines, and gummed up the carb. You'll likely have to finish flushing the tank and lines, and rebuild the carb to clear the gunk.

883 sportster 2007, bike will start on compression but will not start with switch, speedometer needle is stuck and flashers does not work.


Hi, Sylvain before testing any electrical component in the Starting System it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
4. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
5. FOB battery low or dead.
6. Faulty ignition switch.
7. Faulty starter button.
8. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
9. Security alarm needs a reset.
10. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
11. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
12. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
13. Faulty ignition relay.
14. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
15. Check for engine trouble codes.

2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold


Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.

I put premium gas in my 07 sportster. It was hard starting for a couple of days, now it won't start at all. I drained the premium and put unleaded in but it won't stay started.


Your premium probably had ether or alcohol in it, which acted as a solvent for all the old gas gunk in the tank and lines, and gummed up the carb. You'll likely have to finish flushing the tank and lines, and rebuild the carb to clear the gunk.

I would suspect a low battery, however I have to ask if this bike has a security system, as they cause problems, sometimes that mimic a low battery. Either way, I would put battery on charge, when it has a full charge, check for lights and starting. If it won't start, put a load tester on the battery checking for weak or dead cell.

Won't start


Make sure the battery is fully charged. the harley's will not start unless the battery can supply more that 10.5 volts with a load. to check this have the battery on your bike with the headlights on. you should read above 12.4volts with the lights on. and above 10.5v with the lights on while cranking the motor. its a really rew bike so can't be anything major

You need to determine if the solenoid is delivering power to the starter motor terminal when it just clicks. You need to have either a test light or a voltmeter to read 12 volts DC. If, when it clicks, and the meter shows 12 volts at the starter terminal, then the starter motor is in trouble (it could be bad brushes or an open segment on the armature commutator). If you see no voltage, then check the battery side of the solenoid to see if the normally present at all times 12 volts disappears when the starter is tried. If that is so, check the battery cable for a bad wire or connection all the way to the battery. If it stays 12 volts, then the solenoid is bad and should be replaced. Hope that gets you started!
