Some Harley owners like to fix their own bikes, thereby saving both money and riding time. A Harley Davidson can experience electrical problems at any time, but there can be a wait for a service appointment at some repair shops. The most common cause of electrical problems on a Harley Davidson is the battery or the voltage regulator. Troubleshooting can be performed in any garage, and it saves on expensive service bills.

Test the Battery

Step 1

Check the voltage of the battery while it is disconnected from the bike using the multimeter. The volts should be no less than 12 volts.
