2004 Wide Glide electrical issue's

Alright I will jist get started, the battery is new and has good charge. I replaced the stock handle bars with 18'' hangers. I start it and head down the road, I go about 1/4 mile and it dies, loses all electrical power. times vary (from 5 min to days) but I wait, turn the ignition back on ad it starts back up. I have started it and wiggled wires but I cant find anything and cant reproduce the problem. the only thing that I can think is it is due to high humidity, and water getting somewhere that it shouldnt be, but that doesnt explain the 5 minute wait. Any Ideas????

    I have a custom 02 Fatboy, it started shutting down while riding on the highway of all places. I checked the battery and replaced with a gel battery and the problem continued. I determined the stator was fine as the battery wasnt dead it was just not maintaining a charge. I then replaced the voltage regulator and it happened shut down after riding approx 100 miles.............after spending over a couple hundred dollars Im back to square one.........

You might have a bad sensor, The bank angle sensor turns off the ignition system when it THINKS the bike is leaning over 55 degrees. . The sensor is located behind the electrical panel and can be checked with a magnet. Electrical probelms can be a *****. Start by checking your charging system. Put a voltmeter on your battery. It should read about 12.5. Turn the engine on and the reading should increase to about 13.5. If it decreases, its the regulator or stator.
I had a bad crank position sensor on my wideglide that took me hours to run down. Good luck. Let me know what you find

How to charge new battery

One you have replaced the batteries, place the unit in its charging stand and it will inform you approx. how long until the charge is complete. If not, there will be a charging status bar at the top right hand corner. I would typically leave it on the stand for 12 hours minimum. Also, do not put it back on the stand until it tells you that charging is required. Putting a device on charge before required develops a "battery memory", meaning the battery may be half full, but read as empty requiring a full charge.

Just bought new battery, need toknow how to get phone to work again

When you get new batteries for a cordless phone you need to let them charge over night. If you don't the battery will lose its charge much quicker. Now start by charging the batteries followed my plugging the base unit into the phone jack and the electrical outlet. The base unit is what sends out the signals to all the phones and is where your answering machine is located. Once the base is plugged in to the electrical socket and phone jack your phones should start receiving signal again. Make sure the batteries in the phones themselves are plugged in firmly and properly.

I've had that happen with a Partner ACS 3.0 before. The main processor is more than likely failing but you might wan't to check the electrical feed to the system (i.e. battery back up or surge bar) to see if its failing before it's getting to the system. Good luck

We have two handsets, and neither will hold a charge, despite being in the cradle, with the charging icon lit up the whole time. At first one would charges, and the other not, now neither will hold more...

Sounds like the handsets work fine aside from inability to hold a charge.

Which to remedy that it sounds like the factory shipped the product with el cheapo batteries that needs replaced.

I'll not degrade brand names here but it's became a quiet common issue lately.

If the battery has a charge and the connections are all good, you have to have some juice goin through your system and should at the very least get a headlight, IF the bike knows its on. I'd check the starter switch on the handle bar.....did u kill it
accidently...its happened before.....maybe a leads popped off the key switch.
if that all fails
Sometimes battery connections look good, but arent. Try torquing them a little tighter.....good luck

As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.

I am replacing the seals on the front forks of a 1992 Harley Davidson Dyna. Do you have any instructions?

Depends on if its a wide glide or an FXD. On a wide glide all u need to do is remove the front brake and fender, the slider tube caps and spacers. Then the seals -

New batteries does not mean GOOD BATTERY.
Did you test the replacements?
There are batteries that come with a tester in the package. A small sheet of paper with a color coded bar to tell you much like a pregancy test, if the battery is good, before you leave the store.
Never use a new battery after insertion without a full 12 or more hour charge from your phone charger. The batteries are good enough to draw dial tone when new but have been setting in that package for a long time and NEED the initial rebirth charge.
Hope this helps.
