I had charging issues over the weekend on my 04 road king. Battery light came on. I checked the cables and they were loose. I tightened the cables and hoped that was it. It was not. Battery was 2 years old and i hoped that was it. I was out of town and trying to get home. The battery didnt fix the problem. Of course the only other things were regulator or stator. On the road regulator is the best choice. I made the 60 mile trip to a harley dealer and purchased a regulator and installed. Still no fix. Must be the stator. Right? Once home i got the meter out and started checking. Stator is not grounded and putting out voltage. I am also getting voltage from the regulator(11.5) at the stator connection with the key off. Did i buy a bad regulator? I hate to buy another on til i know for sure.
