Can you tell us what won't work?

I had to use a non-OE charger initially, as the NZ dealer was waiting for the H-D OEM cable with a compatible plug to arrive, but their adapted cable worked well for a couple of months and the OBC after that. I just had to make sure the wall socket in the shed had enough juice going to it - after that no issues at all. But, I may have misunderstood what you mean by the OBC.

The OBC (on board charger) is the charger under the tank, the one with the cable is just a stabilaizer for the electricity l was told.

Yep, had to have mine replaced with less than 1000 miles. Took a couple months if I recall.

Hello does anyone had problems with tho OBC (on board charger)?
Just this week, at 3,178 miles, after an 80 mile ride on a hot LA day, I set the charger in my garage and it started charging normally. I came back 12 hours or so later to check on the bike and it was still pumping coolant as it always does during the charge, but the screen looked exactly the same (with charge time left etc., and no warnings), and it had not charged at all. I disconnected the bike and an unusual warning of some kind flashed briefly, but too quick to read or recognize. I slowly turned the bike on, then off, then reconnected everything from scratch and it charged normally - about 8 hours to full. Other than that, it has been perfect so far.

Unfortunately, your method of on/off "cycling" has been the remedy for a few things for me....including the same issue you describe and a "check engine" indicator lamp (MIL), and a shutdown warning message. With all the technology and interconnected systems, maybe it needs a reset every once in awhile??? Best of luck
