The battery on the '02 Deluxe cruiser is not charging.....shows "CH Engine" ever few seconds on speedo..Disconnected battery with engine running and engine dies...is it the regulator or something else?..Thanks for any help....

Since I bought the new XCT the old bike doesn't get rode as much as it should.... Can't understand why...LOLcheerscheers

I'm going to make some wild guesses here...
Fluid level in battery OK?
Battery & starter relay connections tight?
If bike sits unused is there an automatic trickle charger on it?

Check the connection off the voltage regulator. My looked connected but was not making complete contact and that was the problem. I had the same issues as you. Bought new battery and it still occurred, Kevin had me check connector and that was it. Good luck

Connection off voltage regulator looks clean and tight... Is the bike like a car where it will run off alternator with battery disconnected if alternator or stator is working??? Haven't been into bike electrical systems. Have worked on lots of cars and trucks..

Just cleaned all connections... Battery voltage is 12.8 with key and engine off and 14.32 with engine running. "CH Engine" shows on speedo regularly in few second intervals....

Vic uses a stator charging system with a shunt regulator. Pull the battery, and the bike dies. Normal. First thing that needs to be done is a throttle point reset[stickied to the top of the tech forum] If light is still on and you are charging. It is something else.
BTW....What does it charge at with the engine spun up to 3000RPM?

Bikes are not like cars. If you discount battery when bike is running YES it dies
