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.

The battery that's in my 1993 883 Sportster is not the correct one. The terminals are not in the right place. Does any one know what the proper battery group is for this application...?


I tried the pep boys route of getting a battery...i would have had to put the acid in the battery and charge it.i wasted like $70 and couldnt use it. i went to Harley and bought their gel battery for i think around $80 , that was in feb. 2008!!though i ride my bike daily,i run 2 sets of blue l.e.d. lights and im still using the same battery. ive got over 4 years so far and it was charged and ready when i bought it!!

Won't start?


With just this info.Not knowing if the engine is stock or has bigger cams or high comp pistons.I would say check the starter solenoid by running jumper wire from one side to the other.then check ALL connections for corrosion and tightness
