Question about 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster
I can't say that I have ever run into this problem before. The brushes are on the outer end of the generator from any oil and not readily available for oil to get on them. The bike would have to have a terrible rocker box leak and the protective band would have to be off. But, I guess it's possible for oil to prevent a generator from charging. It's simple enough to pull the end off the generator and clean up the commutator ring and the brushes. Make sure you polarize the generator when you put it all back together by momentarily shorting the armature terminal of the generator to the positive post of the battery.
