Hi Kewrm11, it's possible but try this first, turn the ignition key to on then remove the maxi fuse or disconnect the main circuit breaker and leave the switch on, then replace your battery and maxi fuse/main breaker, for more information about your question please visit the websites below.

Your key switch could be bad or you have a broken power wire from the battery to the circuit breakers. Check everything with a voltmeter.

SOURCE: need to change battery on o6 sportster 883 low

Remove battery cover on left side of the bike, remove the positive and negative cables and take out battery. It is that simple but dosen't feel like it because it is so tightly fitted. If you think its a bear to get out wait untill you try and put it back in.

The bike just quit, no fire at all nothing and I mean nothing no lights nothing. Tried jump box and battery but no lights no fire please help


First, check the battery and the terminals on the battery. Sportsters are prone to breaking the battery post for some reason. If the battery is good, then go behind the triangular plate on the left side of the bike and check the fuses.

Good Luck

No fire at the plugs, battery fine, was running then just won't fire, checked for fire with spare plug on both cylinders, test light to coil wires no juice, 1993 Harley XL1200 sportster


Your Sporty has a fuse box somewhere. check the fuses to see if any are blown. Harley always puts their ignition systems on their own circuit. If you don't find anything that way, contact me directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and I'll scan a trouble shooting chart in and send it to you. There's more to the late models than there was with the early models.

My Bike shut down while it was running fine!!


Check the voltage at the battery w/ a voltage meter...4 bucks at Harbor Freight...I doubt you have enough voltage to spin the starter. To prove my point put some jumper cables on the batt hook to a 12 volt source, cycle ,car,truck (engine off on donor veh)..should fire up..check tightness of all batt connections...I had a battery die right in the middle of a ride one time,and it was a harley....so if it starts w/a jump, time for a new batt...good Luck to you friend.....Tim
