Well, this seems to be the winter of multiple problems on my 98 Fatboy. I was trying to start my bike last night and smelled a burnt smell. The battery is kept on a tender but is turning the bike slow. I am going to replace but wonder if I have other problems. I am thinking stator maybe, I am going to take the derby off and see if the primary smells. Question, do you have to remove the inner primary to replace the stator or will it pull with it still on after I remove the clutch basket and chain? I will replace the battery and try to figure out how to test the stator and reg. I have read most of the stuff posted here on how to do so but have to admit, I am not that bright when it comes to electrical stuff (or any other stuff for that matter). I have posted several issues here recently and really do appreciate all the help.
