Turned the key to park, and it died.
This is the short version.
Last night going down the highway and my buddy's Harley died. voltage went to zero. He pulls over onto the medianand I , being carefull of traffic, pull in behind him and hit the flashers.
every few minuites I would come over and rev the bike to keep the battery charged. Every thing was great. Then I remembered seing a post on this forum about the Park position on the ignition swtch. Hey, great idea I think! isnt that supposed to turn the headlight off yet keep the tail lights on?
I turned the key to park and everything died imediately. No engine, no headlight , no running lights, no dash lights no horn. NOTHING.
I curse, then pray, then curse some more.
after several minuets The dash lights would come on veeerrrryyyy sllooowwwly. Not even close to enough power to start the bike.
Two tow trucks and $85 later me and my buddy were both at home.
Checked this morning and all the fuses on the junction box were ok. had the battery on the trickle charger all night, green light this morning for fully charged, turn the key and hit the starter,,,,,,,,, nothing.
Went and had the battery tested and it was DEAD. new battery , she started right up. Checked the stator, 60 something volts on each set of wires, warmed it up and got 14.something volts at the battery at 3000 rpm.
