DESCRIPTION

A single 12-volt battery system is standard factory installed equipment on Harley Davidson Touring models. Refer to the Touring service manual for the service information for the battery system which covers the following related components in further detail elsewhere in this service manual:

Battery - The battery provides a reliable
means of storing a renewable source of electrical
energy within the motorcycle.

Battery Cable - The battery cables connect the
battery terminal posts to the motorcycle electrical system.

Battery Hold down - The battery hold down
hardware secures the battery in the battery tray in
the compartment.

Battery Tray - The battery tray provides a
secure mounting location in the bike for the battery
and an anchor point for the battery holddown
hardware.

For battery system maintenance schedules and jump starting procedures, refer to the Harley Touring manual located on the home page. Optionally, refer to Lubrication and Maintenance for the recommended battery maintenance schedules and for the proper battery jump starting procedures. While battery charging can be considered a maintenance procedure, the battery charging procedures and related information are located in the standard procedures section of the service manual. This was done because the battery must be fully-charged before any battery system diagnosis or testing procedures can be performed. Refer to Standard procedures for the proper battery charging procedures.

OPERATION

The battery system is designed to provide a safe, efficient, reliable and mobile means of producing, delivering and storing electrical energy. This electrical energy is required to operate the engine starting system, as well as to operate many of the other instruments & accessory systems for limited durations while the engine and/or the charging system are not operating. The battery system is also designed to provide a reserve of electrical energy to supplement the charging system for short durations while the engine is running and the electrical current demands of the chopper exceed the output of the charging system. In addition to producing, delivering, and storing electrical energy for the Harley Davidson Touring motorcycle, the battery system serves as a capacitor and voltage stabilizer for the motorcycles electrical system. It absorbs most abnormal or transient voltages caused by the switching of any of the electrical components or circuits in the bike.

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - BATTERY SYSTEM - Refer to the service manual for battery and testing procedures.

TYPICAL BATTERY PROBLEMS

THE BATTERY SEEMS WEAK OR DEAD WHEN ATTEMPTING TO START THE ENGINE.
THE BATTERY STATE OF CHARGE CANNOT BE MAINTAINED.
THE BATTERY WILL NOT ACCEPT A CHARGE.

See Table 8-3 in service manual. The voltmeter test provides a general indicator of battery condition. Check the voltage of the battery to verify that it is in a 100% fully charged condition. If the open circuit (disconnected) voltage reading is below 12.6V, charge the battery and then recheck the voltage after the battery has set for one to two hours. If the voltage reading is 12.8V or above, perform the LOAD TEST described in this section.

LOAD TEST

The load test measures battery performance under full current
load and is the best indicator of battery condition. To
load test the battery, proceed as follows: SEE SERVICE MANUALS FOR DETAILS
