Customer Question

Two questions:
I purchased a 2009 Dyna Super Glide from a local dealer. It has forward controles that I assumed were stock. Did this bike come with forward controls?
Bike will not start. Battery seems to be fine ??? I'm going to have it tected. What would be the next possible thing to look for? The battery has only 1500 miles on it.
Thanks, Bill

- no. the FXD was not delivered with forward controls.

- there are many factors that determine battery life and condition. there are several possible reasons for a failure to start. it's always best to follow a systematic approach to troubleshooting. I like to start with the battery. measure the battery terminal voltage under the following conditions:

- ignition OFF.

- ignition ON.

- with the start button depressed.

let me know what you find. we can continue then.
