Harley Davidson 883 2004

My 2004 Harley Sportster 883 has been sitting for a year, replaced battery, but it won't even turn over

    Sounds like the issue I have as well. Bike has a fully charged battery, lights, horn etc work fine. When turn ignition, just hear a click sound.

    I looked at the plugs are both are sparking correctly when turn ignition. When I removed the plugs but attached the cap, the engine turns over (no ignition obviously).

    Seems strange the engine will crank when the plugs are out but not when they are inserted..

Do the lights or anything even come on? Probably starter/solenoid contacts needs to be cleaned or somthing from it sitting. Could even be the starter relay. If everything else seems to work on the bike then its probably something with the starter system.

Make sure your kill switch is off, check battery voltage across terminals, should be 12.6 volts. Check for loose connections at battery, starter and at frame ground.

Bike Won't Fire


Timing is off. If the timing isn't exactly right it will turn over until the battery goes dead or the starter burns up (which ever comes first). The fuel/air mixture has to be ignited, expelled from the engine,etc. for the bike to run.

Harley davidson, sportster


That can be cause by a bad coil, or regulator, a bad ignition module or fuse, or a bad connection to any of the above. A faulty crank position or bank angle sensor as well. Do you have a multimeter ? You will need one to trace the problem, but first check all your fuses and connections starting at the battery

04 1200 Sportster - backfires - cuts out - fouls plugs


Turns out the crank sensor needed to be replaced again (second time in 8 weeks or so!). In the last week Harley has sent out a "improved" crank sensor that does not have the issues of the original. Therefore if you replace it once you shouldn't have to do it again and again. Bike runs great now. We will see - though - my local service manager promises it will stay that way.

Harley start trouble


Just your average run of the mill bad starter. When you take the plugs out, you relieve all the compression from the cylinders, therefore there is no load on the starter, and it turns it over. Put the plugs back, and you get the compression back, putting a tremendous load on the starter. Replace the starter and you're good.
