2004 Fatboy IMy bike has 7000 miles on it. It has set in the garage for about a month without being started. I had to jump it off with a 12 volt car battery. The bike runs fine as long as it is connected to the extra baterry but shuts off as soon as the jumper cables are disconnected. Is this the voltage regulator?

The Battery and or Stator is bad. Just like on a car if you pull the negative cable off the battery while the car is running and it dies your alternator is bad.

HD Fatboy Starting problems


It sounds like you have a short in your start button wires, this could be caused by having custom bars with internal wiring. The wires chafe, touch, and it bypass's the button altogether. I would check continuity at the connector on the 2 wires of your start button and see if it changes whether the switch is depressed or not. If you have continuity both ways, you have a short. You should not have continuity unless you depress the button. If all looks well, re-post.

New battery on new bike,it kills the batterys in 2 days


Either you have a dead short in your wireing or your battery is not charging fully. Use a volt meter your battery will have 12 volts start the bike and it should read 13 plus then take it up to 2000 rpm above idle anyway it should read 14 plus. If you dont have these numbers then you have a stator or regulator problem or both. You may be geting a slight charge when running but not enough to keep the battery peaked out.

The bike will not start


Just a couple questions, then I'll see if I can point you in the right direction. Did you purchase from the dealer or individual? What exactly is it doing when you hit the switch?

If I don't get back to you tonight, I will tomorrow morning. It's a beautiful evening here in Missouri The hurricane has pushed some real nice 70 degree weather up here, and it beats the hell out of the 100 degree heat we've been having. So, I'm gonna ride.

All is dead.


I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps
