Had a similar problemn with an 08 delux. Harley replaced the voltage regulator (after telling us there was no problem with the bike) and so far its cranked every time. Before that we had to put it on a charger for several hours to get it to start but then a couple days later it wouldn't start. The battery in our 08 was bad after 4 months and even after harley replaced the battery it did the same thing. I think the voltage regulator was the problem in the first place. The lights would come on turn signals work and it would even try to turn over but just not enough juice to start it. Good luck.

Hi Michael, If you did any with wiring just before all this started go back to that first and check with a test lite for a grounded power wire that is bare, broke or pinched. If not check underneath the fender or remove the fender to see if rear wheel has rubbed any wires there. You can isolate sections by disconecting the electrical plugs in the turn signal and tailite circuit. Good luck

Nothing happens when the ignition switch is turned on

You should not change the wattage on bulbs as the increased load may wreak such havoc with your electrical system.

I would wonder that the main fuse would blow, do you have any power to anything?? Maybe you blew a lighting fuse.

If you find the solution please make a comment and post it.

Take one spark plug out, connct it to its wire and lay it visible on the engine, press the starter and see if there is a spark.
No spark; check if there is power to the ignition coil, if power there, coil is bad.

I have a 2006 softtail deluxe I have had it since it was brand new. I am a new rider have only had my license since 2006 needless to say I don't know that much about motorcycles. My husband on the other...

I would measure the battery voltage with the engine runnig at a fast tickover and then say 2000 revs. If it exceeds 14 volts it is cooking your battery. Replace the regulator.
Ride safe and enjoy.
