Every battery will loose some charge when its not in use. The first thing I'd do would be to put a voltmeter on the battery when its fully charged and then crank it up. If the voltage drops, you probably have a bad regulator

You've got something that's pulling from the battery. It could be as simple as a loose connection or bare wire touching the frame, it could also be a bad relay, and this will generally show when testing for an open circuit. Check any added electrical devices. Also, keep in mind that the system on a Harley doesn't charge the battery, it only keeps it topped at where it's at. So, if you have a half charge on the battery, you can ride to Hawaii and back, and you'll still only have a half charged battery. This is where a battery tender comes in helpful for garage time. I'm afraid you're just going to have to start tracing wires, and checking relays.

Check you battery terminal connections. Can't think of any other reason that the rear light should be fluttering. If battery is tight then trace through your circuit breakers with a test light.

Where is the drain for a 2003 harley fat boy


There should be a hose that come off one rear corner of the oil tank, it either goes straight down to the frame with a plug directly underneath (has oil o'ring #11105). It could also just be a line that is attached to the swing arm with a hose plug in it and a funny spring clamp holding the plug in the hose. I think 2003 is the first solution though.
