Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
I have problem with my Harley Rocker C. After the winter time charging LED indicator not working. When I swith on ignition charging indicator does not light. I was checked charging during iddle, in my opinion is good, I was mesure 13,70V. What can be reason that charging indicator not light? When swith odometer in service mode this LED working??? but in normal operating mode not.
Light off means it is charging I would say , light on means n charge.

you mean all lights work but speed needle don't move, its a cable problem, maybe broken or come loose from speedo. remove 3 hex screws from chrome trim on gas tank and see if it has come unscrewed, if not undo it and spin front wheel and see if the end of cable turns, it should unless its broken.

well i would make sure all ground from battery are tight and clean then check pos cable to be tight if they seem to be good the make sure you have 12 volts or more at battery then on that model the ignition is on the tank the ignition very common to go out if it is the type on the tank you may need to pull cover on tank to get to ignition to test very simple to remove cover and test the wire make sure you getting voltage when you but it to start some time wiggling switch you can get it to work hope this help

You've already spotted the problem. 13.5 volts is not enough to keep the battery charged. It will slowly lose it's charge. You should be charging at 14.5-15.0 volts.
Check your regulator output. Look just behind the base of the rear cylinder and you'll see the wires coming out of the primary that go to the regulator. There's a plug in the line somewhere. Unplug it. You'll be measuring the output of the alternator so you'll be dealing with the wire on the alternator end of the plug. There are two metal contacts in the plug. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter) to do this test. Set the meter's function selector switch to AC VOLTS, 50 VOLTS or greater. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. Insert one meter lead into each metal contact. It make no difference which lead goes where as you're measuring AC voltage. Your meter should read at least 25 volts or higher. If not, your stator is bad.
If you read 25 volts or more, your regulator needs replacing.
BTW: Early 1984 was the last year for a generator on the Sportster. Late 1984 to present, the bikes have alternators on them. Much better than the old generators. Much better.
