There seem to be 3 that could be right: YTX14-BS YTX20L-BS YTX20-BS I also need a new battery for a 2009 Buell XB-9 City X and have the same problem - which of the above works? Thanks for your help

According to what I have here, the XL in 2006 uses the YTX14L-BS. What you need to look for is the general size of the battery and the post configuration, which side the positive post is on. Now, the H-D AGM battery is a very good battery from my experiences and is competitively priced. You might want to consider one of those.

Good Luck
Steve

2002 sportster lost spark to plugs


Hi Anonymous, 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.
