Negative battery connection...loose

Loose negative cable. You need to follow the book procedure for replacing the battery in a 2007 Sportster.
The negative cable gets attached and tightened to the battery terminal before installing the battery. The negative cable then gets re-attached at the top of the trans.
Always connect the negative cable last, after the positive is connected.
