Are you experiencing charging issues with your motorcycle? Don't worry, we've got you covered. Hi, I'm Seth from Throttle Addiction, and in this video we discuss how to test your motorcycle's entire charging system to diagnose any issues you may be having. We recently picked up a 2004 Sportster the previous owner claimed had an issue with the stator. Instead of throwing components at the issue, we developed a cheat sheet to help you test the battery, stator, and regulator in the right order. This testing method let's you cut straight to the root of the problem and purchase only the parts you need. Charging issues are one of the most common complaints we see in our service shop, but with our guide, you can easily diagnose and fix the problem yourself. Watch our How-To video to learn how to test your motorcycle's charging system step-by-step, using affordable tools.
