Lovers of all bikes
I know some people hate Harleys and some love them. Some love all bikes. This is aimed at those who love bikes including Harleys. I have had very little issues with my Harley. Love it equal to all my other bikes.
I have been trouble shooting my 02 Wideglide. It flashes trouble codes of 1 1 which is a high voltage above 15 volts for more than 5 seconds. I have read voltages at the battery while running at various times and could never read overe 14.4 volts. Puzzled I have lived with this error for about 2 years.
I picked up my research on this 1 1 issue and decided to pursue the warning. What I did was connect my Fluke 87 to the battery, put it in the record mode and went for an hour long ride varying the speeds I rode at. When I got home I discovered my low voltage was 12.05 and high of 17.48. Ok, now I have observed the high volt situation. I ordered and replace the voltage regulator. My fault codes have been reset and I have been out on the bike 5 times without fault codes. I think I corrected my problem.
Prior to replacing the regulator my question is can high voltage open the main circuit breaker? While out on a ride one day I was coasting to a stop light and realized the bike was not running. I coasted to the shoulder of the road and shut it off. Key on engine started and I rode home. No I did not think of looking to see if the headlight was out or not. I have not experienced this again. Strange. Circuit breakers to my knowledge were for over current situations.
