    The battery on my 2002 fatboy went completely dead and i put a new one on the bike. Now the bike cranks good but will not start. I had to charge the new battery a couple of times from trying to start the bike. We checked for fire and have none. Also no smell of gas when we crank the bike. Checked for voltage on wire going to coil and it has good voltage. Does anyone know what could possably be the problem?

    If the battery is under 9 volts it will not fire up. Also check your fuses.

    Is it EFI or carb and is it throwing any trouble codes?
