    Hello, im new to this and not sure if im doing this right, but here it goes. Im rebuilding my girlfriends 86 883 xl and for awhile she has had problems with the battery draining on her. Ive got the service manual for it but its like trying to read Spanish, I just cant read it. Im in procees of checking reg and stator. If any one has a simple diagram id love to see it. Or if anyone has any ideas please let me know

    Is there any electronics that are not factory? If all O.E. how are you determining drain? Have you pulled fuses one by one with test meter attached to isolate circuit that is causing drain?

    Seems to me the year you have had the alternator on the clutch hub, it was a poor at best set up
