Do you have the turn signal security on your bike? If so, have you made sure it is not set and the battery is good in the key fob?

Why doesn't engine turn over?

Check the battery.Is it charged?Also does the neutral light go on?
If not check the neutral switch.
The neutral switch is behind the engine case near the rear shock and has one wire. Make sure the bike is in neutral or on stands. Remove the one wire and put it to earth/chassis/ground (somewhere metal on the bike). The neutral light should come on and you should be able to start the bike if that was the problem.

Battery indicator light

Hi Anonymous, either the battery is not getting charged or it's voltage is dangerously low. Check the battery for loose and corroded connections especially the ground cable at both ends. Have the battery load tested if it's been in the bike for some time. Good luck

Yes, you need to check your charging system. First remove the battery and fully charge it (overnight) then refit, and start the bike. With the engine running at about twice the idle speed check the voltage at the battery. It should be approx 14 volts DC. If it is lower than 12.5 you should look first at the voltage regulator and rectifier. The symptoms you describe lead me to believe your charging system is the culprit. It may also be be your alternator, but check the regulator and rectifier first (cheaper)

Use of a battery tender

No, but keep in mind that the Battery Tender will not charge a low battery. They will only maintain a fully charged battery.

Not charging

To test the chargeing system on your bike. First, text the battery. Unless it is "brand new" there is always the posibility that your battery is the problem. This is especially true on an Ironhead Sporty due to the vibration. Take it to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test it.

The first thing we want to do is to "polarize" the generator. Using a jumper wire, MOMENTARILY touch the wire from the "A" terminal to the positive terminal of the battery. Just make it spark, that's all.

Now, with the battery FULLY CHARGED, connect a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to the battery. Red meter lead to the positive and black meter lead to the negative. Put the meter's function switch in DC VOLTS, 20 VOLTS or greater scale. Start the engine bring it to a high idle. The meter should read 14.5 to 15.0 volts. If not, test the generator.

First, remove all the wires from both the "A" and the "F" terminals. put your meter's function switch to DC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS or greater. Connect the red meter lead to the "A" terminal and the black meter lead to a good ground. Start the engine and bring the revs up to about 2000 rpm. MOMENTARILY, connect a jumper lead form ground to the "F" terminal of the generator. Your volt meter should read 25-30 volts.

If your generator output is good, you need to replace your regulator. If the output of the generator is zero or low, you need to service the generator. Check the brushes to make sure they're not worn and you may need to recondition the communtator surfaces.

Good luck

Need diagram to diag not charging. thanks

To check your charging system, you'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). The first thing to do it to take your battery out of the bike and take it to an automotive parts house. Ask them to load test the battery for you. This will ensure that the problem is not the battery.

Now, put the fully charged battery back into the bike. Connect the red meter lead to the positive post and the black meter lead to the negative post of the battery. Put the meter's function switch in "DC VOLTS, 20 VOLT range. Start the bike and bring the engine to a high idle. The meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts.

If it doesn't read this voltage, find the wires coming from the alternator on the lower left front of the engine. Follow the wires back to the round plug and unplug it. Look into the engine side of the plug and you'll see two metal contacts. Make sure these are clean. Put your meter function switch in AC VOLTS, 50 Volt range and start the bike. Bring the engine to a high idle. Put either of the meter probes on one metal contact and the other probe on the other contact. The meter should read 25 volts or higher.

If the battery test reads low but the alternator test reads correct, the regulator is probably defective. If the alternator reads zero voltage or low, the alternator stator is bad.

Good Luck

Battery drained while riding

Sounds like you either have corroded wires going to your battery or your alternator is not properly charging the battery. Get the bike to an autozone and ask them to put their tester on it.

please mark this as a fizya! thanks
