roadmut is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Bernadette up & running

I have got to know her
a little bit better these past couple weeks. I'm riding a 1975 XLCH with a custom paint job by Matt Hubbard. It took a couple weeks but I ferreted out the shorts. Thanks to those who in here all the helpful and informative suggestions. But this fall I intend to pull the motor and go through it I'm pretty sure the main bearing seal is bad. So I am sure I will be back for more help.I intend to take the old girl cross country on the longest road in the nation US route 20 except perhaps to skip a few big cities along the way.

What kind of electrical issue? Maybe I can help...

You need to put your pictures up on a pic hosting sight (like imgbb.com or similar) then copy the link address with the image tags [IMG][/IMG] and post that link into your posting here...
