Ive checked all the wiring and nothing is shorting out. is this a common problem? and could it be the lead to the spark plug somehow shorting through a radiator hose that it is touching?I want to keep an eye on this thread.... Same thing happened on my 2002 XC300 a few years ago. I never found any specific cause and the problem seems to have gone away. Funny the two specific times it happened I happened to be almost directly underneath High Voltage power transmission lines. Check your kill switch for shorts. If it is only a single wire unit. That might be the path to your shocking adventures. I have sinced changed my XC into an EC with a new wiring harness and switch gear. So that may be why my problem is gone.,,,

No electrical after sudden braking on highway


Probably a broken cable where the insulation has not been broken by the shock load, have a look at the ground terminal area it can look ok but a pull on it to feel any stretch will do it and if not try others in battery area, test main fuse they can look visually ok but may be fractured.

Hi there, I have a 2001 EC200 GG and I'm finding the front brake weak and spongey. Is it generally the stock brake line or the pads that are the main problem, or something else? Cheers,


Hi, spongy brakes is usually from air in the system, only in really old bikes and poor quality brake lines will cause spongy breaks where the brake lines expand instead of full pressure being applied to the brake pads, very rarely will the brake pads cause spongy brakes (unless over heated), once you get rid of the sponginess you will get strong braking. Bleed your front brake system taking care not to let the master cylinder run out of fluid, this is the easiest and cheapest start, once all the air is out then you can work your way through, another good way of testing your braking system, but you need to be very careful doing this and make sure your brake lines are not hard or brittle, you can squeeze the brake line at certain spots (using a pair of brake line pliers), eg. squeeze after the master cylinder. if brakes spongy than your master cylinder needs attention, if brakes hard than your problem is further down the line, calipers etc. Hope this helps.

Handling seems alittle loose


I wouldn't think one as new as yours would have swingarm problems. Have you checked your air shocks lately? The FLHTC has air assisted suspension on the front and rear as best as I can remember.

One other thing, I have heard people complain about Dunlop tires. They say that they don't like them because of that problem. I've never noticed a problem with Dunlops but I ride a Wide Glide. I have recently changed to Metzler 880's tires. They seem to handle well but the braking is not too good on them. The rear tire will lock up and never make a sound. You don't know it's locked until the bike tries to go sideways a bit. Not good.

Good Luck

Whyis my break light staying the bike is a 2006


The front brake light switch in located in the throttle switch housing. When you pull the front brake lever, it pivots and allows the switch to make. Sometimes the brake master cylinder and the front switch housings move and cause this problem. Loosen the master cylinder bolts holding it onto the handlebars and make sure it's slid down tight against the throttle switch housing.

If this doesn't solve the problem, you may have an electrical problem that you'll have to trace out and find the problem. You'll need a wiring diagram for this. There are two switches in the system that controls the light. I've already talked about the front switch. The rear brake switch is a pressure switch located somewhere along the metal line that comes out of the rear brake master cylinder. Sometimes these switches go bad but rarely. Having an electical problem on a bike this new is unusual as well. I don't have a wiring diagram for this model. Good Luck.

How to adjust front brake lever on '06 hd road king?


This is by design. When you have new pads on the bike and a rotor within limits the lever has very limited travel before engaging.
As these parts wear the position of which the lever engages changes. Unless you know that at the last brake pad change the caliper was "centered" this could account for the travel and will result in premature wear on the components.

Rear traction on 2004 honda 1100 vt sabre


Hi ...... Def'ly sounds like a traction problem. Elevate the rear wheel off the ground using a centre-stand or axle stands. Grip the wheel at 12 o'clock & 6 o'clock then 9 o'clock & 3 o'clock, wiggle & pull (gently) in both positions, if you feel any movement it points towards wheel bearings. Check to see if there are any oil leaks, oil breather hose or battery breather hose which exit over the rear wheel. Is the shock leaking onto the wheel ? Is it a drum or disc brake ?
