Having joined the club, a bit late, I’m now getting a low battery warning for the 12-volt battery as I’ve been unable to ride with ice and snow on the ground. Has anyone found a good workaround to this issue?
For what it’s worth, I’ve maintained a regular charging regiment. Adding 5% twice a week and maintaining the RESS between 30% and 70% per HD recommendations. The warning followed this. And after a long ride today, the warning went away.
I believe Harley Davidson printed a lie stating the RESS manages the 12-volt. It does no such thing. Only when you ride the bike does it seem to be charged. Not while level 1 charging. As an engineer myself, I find this whole situation unethical on Harley Davidson’s part, and more deplorable HD hasn’t recalled this.
If they don’t resolve this, this is possibly my last Harley.
