Hi Glide. I'm trying to figure out if my stator went bad, and let's say that I'm not exactly Thomas Edison when it comes to electrical things, so I've been hitting the various forums looking for a problem similar to mine. I have an '06 FLSTSC/I. For the last three weeks or so, both the check engine and low battery lights have lit up while I was riding, but would then go off after a few minutes. No problem starting the bike afterward but I used your primer on checking error codes and got a B 1004, followed by P/N 67033-04A, which is a part number for a speedometer. But my speedometer is fine. Anyway, the last couple of days, the engine and battery lights have come on and stayed on. And after shutting off the bike, I haven't been able to start her back up. The battery just doesn't have enough juice to turn her over and the bike finally starts clicking, lights flicker. etc .... I took the battery off the bike and had a neighbor test it with a digital meter (I don't have one). It had a reading of 18. He load tested it and said it seemed fine, although I don't know what the particular reading was. He put the battery on a charger for a couple of hours. I put it back on the bike and it started right up. But again, after riding it for about an hour, the to lights came on and I couldn't get the bike started after I shut it off: the battery was drained. I opened up the primary window to smell the fluid (I use the HD Syn 3), because I read on the forum somewhere that a burned stator gives off a noticible smell. Nothing smelled strange to me. I saw your primer on checking the charging system, but haven't tried it (no multimeter of my own right now). Any idea if it's the stator? If it was a car, I'd pretty much assume there was a problem with the alternator or belt, but with the bike, I'm not sure. Any idea what this could all mean? I'm especially puzzled by the B 1004 error code, since there is nothing wrong with the speedometer.
