Well whenever you have you an electrical problem you always want to start with the easiest first which would be your battery. I would say if you plan on riding for a while that you really should run to sears or a home depot and get yourself a craftsman or whatever brand you make like volt/ohms meter. You battery shouldnt be under about 12.2 volts at sitting still. Ideally a harley davidson battery should be at 12.8 volts. Now when the engine is running then i would say you should be anywhere around 13 volts to about a little under 15 volts which normally sportsters run at the lower spectrum of those numbers. i would try that first to see where it leads you with. other then that it could be your starter relay which is a in your fuse box. that and if its carbed you might want to crack the handle a few times to get her going. If it starts but keeps cranking it might need new plugs or it could be the ignition system. but granted go with the cheapest first.

Mathieu. It sound like you have overfilled it with oil. Drain most of it out the leave it level. A lawnmower will run better with it not being overfilled. Clean the spark plug and heat it gently to completely remove traces of oil. John

2005 Harley Davidson 1200 Custom Sportster Stalls at Lights and Stop Signs

4700 not a lot of miles. This motorcycle needs to run. It will be rough until you can get the carb cleaned. I would keep doing what you have been doing for a while. After a couple hundred miles if it doesn't improve, you might want to consider having the Harley shop give it a good tune up. Check the plugs ...

Oil cap blows off 1979 ironhead

Hi Anonymous, the engine breather system on Harley Davidsons has NEVER been famous for being a trouble free zone. Oil tank dip stick launches happen far to often than they should in my humble opinion. As engine sizes get bigger so does the volume of air created by the piston downstroke, and for the most part the diameter of the breathing excape route stays the same. The usual cause of dipstick launch is a worn out rubber seal that requires no effort to remove or install, a new rubber seal requires some effort to push it in the oil tank and some effort to remove it. Next in line is an oil tank the is over filled. Try a new dipstick and running your oil level half way between the add and full mark. Good luck

2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold

Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below and good luck.

My 2001 1200 C Custom Sportster won't turn over, it just clicks. I've changed the spark plugs and am currently having the battery checked. If it is not the battery, what might be my other options?

9 times out of 10 its the battery ,, have them LOAD check it before you put it back in, Harleys take a ton of amps to turn over, everything else will work, but no go on starting. Also, once running, short trips will drain the battery fast,, My harley mechanic told me for each start I need 30 minutes of drive time to fully recharge the battery , One dead cell in the battery will cause this to worsen 10 times, make sure all connections are clean and tight

How much oil does my 2005 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom? I was told by tech at Harley dealer (and he sold me 3 qt) that it took all most 3 qts, but when I changed it new filter and all, it...

Maybe it wasn't flushed and there was still some old oil in it.
Do these things have a level indication?
If the level is right, start the bike and run it for a minute or so, watch the oil light. Then stop it, leave it a few mions to let the oil settle in the sump and check it again.
What I mean by flushing out, have a look at how it's done on a different type of bike -
