    B]I have a 2001 heritage , it spins over slow and sometimes wont start when bike isnt warmed up ,(battery dies in a short time). Ive replaced the battery with a 300 cranking amp , bought a battery maintainer ,which does show the battery fully charged . Replaced regulator, and just put on a new starter. Summer is here and im ready to ride.(i love my bike) it has not let me down til now.
    Ever since i got it, it cranked slow but never let me down.
    The battery cables look good.
    It has 190 psi compression,
    should i have more cranking amp battery ?
    Any ideals would be great

    thanks kirk[/B]

    Welcome to the Forum. Lots of great info here in the various section, and in the heads of your fellow members.

    Slow cranking. You have changed out the battery, voltage regulator and starter. Check this out:

    Also, do this stuff:

    Let us know what you find.
