Attempted to start my 01 FLHTCI and upon hitting the start switch, everything went blank. No more dash lights, no nothing. Checked the battery and saw the positive terminal had melted plastic from a nearby wire jacket and the battery actually had a small hole near the terminal that was caused from the heat. Before hooking up the new battery and perhaps duplicating the same occurrence, I'm thinking about checking for a short at the solenoid or starter motor. Is this sound and if so how do I do that??
Yesterday I was able to secure a job to build an engine. This one is pretty straight forward, nothing too crazy but it is experience. The bike is a 1998 Wide Glide. The bike only has 32k on the clock but the owner wants to perk it up a bit. This isn't going to be too crazy of a build. do some head work, an EV 27 cam, some new slip on mufflers as the ones that he has on now are gutted and junk, new S&S oil pump, adjustable pushrods, lifters and new slugs. Going to be a fun little project.
