Harley Davidson Motorcycles - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If the bike is losing ALL power, I'm talking about dash lights, headlight, tail light, ALL lights, it's probably something tripping the main breaker. The breaker should be located either under the seat or behind the trianglular panel on the right side of the bike. I'd look for a frayed wire near the starter or around the rear cylinder due to the head in that area.

Good Luck
Steve

I would check for spark sounds like a dead cylinder

It's in the area under the drivers seat.

To test your regulator, first charge your battery to full charge. You'll need a DVOM (digital volt ohm meter). Connect the DVOM "across" the battery by connecting the red meter lead to the positive post of the battery and the black meter lead to the negative post of the battery. Put the meter's function selector switch in DC VOLTS, 50 VOLT RANGE. Start the engine and bring it to a high idle. After about a minute or so, you're meter should read between 14.5 and 15.0 volts. If not, proceed to the next step.

If you are not getting the correct voltage to keep your battery charged, you need to check the output of the stator. Look on the front of the engine near the end of the oil filter and you'll see the plug from your voltage regulator plugged up there. Unplug the plug and look down into the engine side of the plug and you'll see two metal contacts. This is where we are going to test the output of you alternator. First, put your meter's function switch to AC VOLTAGE, 50 VOLT RANGE. Notice that we are testing for AC voltage as opposed to DC like we did last in the last test. This means it doesn't make any difference which meter lead goes to which contacts. Start the engine and put one of the meter's probes on each of the metal contacts. Make sure you do not touch the meter probe to each other or to the engine case. Bring the engine to a high idle and your meter should read at least 30 volts AC voltage.

If you do not have the 30 volts AC at the engine, your stator is bad. If you do have at least thirty volts at the alternator but less than 13.0 volts at the battery, your regulator is bad. Make sure your regulator is properly grounded where it bolts to the frame. I usually put one of those "star lockwashers" between the regulator and the frame on both bolts to make sure I've got a good ground. If the regulator is not grounded properly, it won't work.

Good Luck
Steve

There is a bendix gear in the starter which is pushed out to the flywheel when the starter button is pushed. If you hear the starter spinning but the starter is not turning the engine over, the bendix gear is stuck. Rebuild the starter. If you do not hear the starter spinning, you have a wiring problem.

(1) harley vibrates make sure kickstand stays up.
(2) you have to find it. there is a tilt switch on bike.
if it lean over to far it will kill the bike. check to see if its ok.

I doubt seriously that you are going to find an online service manual for your bike. The reason is that Harley-Davidson is very protective of their copyrighted material. I'm not saying that you can't find out how to fix a particular problem online but a downloadable service manual is something that I've never seen unless it was for some very old or no longer made Harley, like maybe the Italian Harleys. Go to this site to find your service manual but you'll have to buy it if you want it.
http://www.diyrepairmanuals.com/makes.asp I'm sorry I can't help anymore than that because if I could find the manuals online, I'd download every one of them. Sure would help in what I'm doing here and out in the shop.

Good Luck

Most of the electronic speed sensors are located on the right rear corner of the transmission. I think this is what you're asking anyway.

Good Luck

WHEN A BULB IS BAD, THE FLASHERS BLINK VERY QUICKLY. YOUR TURN SIGNAL SWITCH MAY BE WORN OUT.
