I recently purchased a 2011 HD Street Bob. The bike will occasionally just shut off for a split second, the speed odometer, the engine and the lights will shut off and then a split second later come back to life. It does it just at random times, sometimes it wont do it for a week or so then it will do it once or twice during a ride and other times I cant even leave the parking lot because it is so bad.
I took the battery cover off and noticed my battery cables had pretty much welded themselves to the battery posts. my question is, what would cause this? Are these two problems related? does anyone know the correct stock amprage on this charging system? I looked at the stator and the regulator online and the only thing that it says will fit my bike is a 50 amp charging system when the main fuse is a 45 amp fuse.
HELLLLPPPPPP! :feedback:

Loose connections at the battery posts would cause your problem.

When they are loose, they will arc due to the intermittent connection...

Arc just like an arc welder.

I was really hoping to receive that answer. I am going to go buy a new battery tomorrow, any suggestions for what kind of battery I should get?

I like the Yuasa GYZ series batteries.

Your bike takes a GYZ20HL
