    Hi folks,
    I ride an 01 Ultra. This morning on the way to work my volt meter pegged, speedo went to 0 and engine light come on. Bike continued to run fine no skipping or popping. After 3 mins or so the speedo started jumping around very eratic and then leveled out at the correct speed. My volt meter then dropped from being pegged to around 10.5-11 volts. Bike continued to run fine. Headlight never dimmed. On my way home from work bike continued to run fine till you come to an idle and it wanted to stall. Volt meter went to 13-14 volts a couple of times then back down to 10-11 volts. Bike fires right up no stall at all in the starter motor. Loose connection somewhere? Bad stator? Weak battery? Thanks for your help!

    Definitely start at the battery cables. Be sure to check at both ends of cables.

    Load test the battery, how old is it? Always start at the source( BATTERY) and work out through each system:s
