My neighbors 03 Ultra Classic was eating the main 50A breaker under the seat for awhile. I think HD had a bad run of them for a minute.......
I’ll keep that in mind. I’m letting the battery charge now, then i’ll load test it and see what happens. I see to see if the bike is actually charging also.

Its fully diagnosed, Stator :(



I’ve got the parts ordered (all OEM replacements), another $250, ouch. At least I don’t pay labor wrenching on my own stuff.

Yeah, they (neighbor and BIL) have done them, too. Did you get the high output and matching regulator?
I just got the factory stator and rotor. I have no reason for the high output stuff on this bike (at this time). I left the regulator alone for now. We’ll see if the stator took it out too.

Crispy!
Mine is dry and behind a belt drive. Wonder if that's better or worse.

My dad was able to get the bike wrapped up for me while I'm away at college. It doesn't seem that the stator took out the voltage regulator, so far so good. While the bike was down I also found an NOS Harley-Davidson Mini Tach kit. I have been searching for this for a while, as I think its one of the cleaner options to mount a tach on a road king.

I got my new solo seat all installed. This is a Drag Specialties forward positioning solo seat. Compared to a 2010 and older Street Glide seat, this moves you around 1" down and forward. I was really surprised by how low this seat sits. It's not quite as forward as I was hoping, but I think I still like it. If you're looking for a plush cushy solo seat, this isn't it. I also ordered the matching fender bib. The idea was I'd put a solo seat on so I could use a tour pak I had as a rider backrest. This seat comes with a bracket with its own striker for mounting. This means that you need no tools to pop the seat on and off.

The seat isn't the best quality, but it's not bad for a sub $300 seat.

This seat is L O W




The bracket has an adjustable striker, so you can tighten this gap up.


Some modifications required on the fender bib, no big deal. Luckily this kit comes with a punch to make new holes in the leather.








Here are a couple shots of the NOS Mini-Tach kit I found on eBay.

Tour pac is mega useful. And I super covet the mini tach. Last NOS one I saw listed for mine was $2k. Ridiculous.

that is just insane. After some offering back and forth with the seller on eBay, we settled around $45. The only thing missing was the rubber isolation gasket. Luckily my local Harley shop was able to find me a dealer that still had one laying around.

The only thing that bugs me is the backlighting is not orange like the speedmometer. I need to find some of those silicone caps that go over the bulb to tint it.

Awesome score. Lightning can be handled.
