Just got back from riding at Red River park today and got stranded out in the back section. I was going down a steep section and dropped the bike on it's right side. Picked it back up and lost balance and it dropped on the left side. After that it wouldn't start. I coasted down the rest of the way and tried to bump start it

Re: bike not firing
No go. When I got to the bottom I keep trying to start it. The starter had good power and would turn it over but it wouldn't fire. After trying a couple of times I would turn it off and let it set. I did notice that I am not hearing the normal buzz that the fuel injector makes. I don't see any damage on either side and don't see any loose wires. We finally got the bike back to camp around 5:30 this evening and got home.
Has anyone else had this problem? What can I check? What next?
P.S. It has been a great day, and got better. When we stopped to clean the bikes at the car wash, I forgot to put my boots back in the trailer. Anyone have a size 12 that they aren't using???,Under the left side cover you will see two relays, one is a fuel pump relay the other a fan relay. Try changing them around and see if that works it could be a faulty relay. Some auto shops sell them, if you replace it or just refitting it seel the relay with silicon to stop water getting in.If it is not this look at the fuses under the seat are not loos or blowen.,,,

My 2007 FLHX has had problems starting and today it died as I was going thought the gears hard, the same thing I found from the starting problem, if you push up on the what used to be called the pet cock you can here the fuel pressure release and my bike starts right up. I think I have fuel regulator problem.
Sounds like a combination of leaking fuel tap and old fuel.
When you park it overnight or longer, pull the fuel hose off the carb , and drain the carb bowl. So when you next ride it, reconnnect the fuel line, turn on the fuel tap long enough to fill the carb, 10 secs,then turn it off to start the bike, turn it back on when the bike starts. even if you replace the fuel tap this process can help.
I have a 91 wr still sitting under the house from younger times, and yes very good bike
Check oil when bike is cold...... here is the best procedure.
Ride bike (and enjoy)
Park bike on side stand, let sit for at least 10 minutes or overnight. (lets oil drain out of cooler into sump)
Put bike on center stand. Bike should be on level ground
Check oil level in window on lower LHS of engine.
Level should be anywhere inside of red circle in sight glass.
DO NOT OVERFILL let level get down to lower edge of red circle before adding oil
Sounds like you are tripping the main breaker for some reason. This breaker is designed to trip when the maximum current load is exceeded. After a few minutes, it resets so you stand a better chance of not being stranded.
There is something on your bike causing an excessive load on the electrical system. Have you added any new accessories or lights recently? If so, you could have exceeded the maximum current load for your electrical system.
If not, I'd suspect a chaffed wire somewhere. These can be very difficult to find. I'd start by looking where the wires come from beneath the tank and go into the front end. The wires flex a lot here and are subject to break.
Electrical problems can sometimes be very difficult to solve
start of breaking down of HT coil, if breaksdown while warm, leave for a while and start back up, it's HT coil, sounds like you should just carry on and see if it gets worse, then you'll know. unusual for a sudden complete breakdown so you shouldn't be stranded.
the regulater is located between tha battery and the gas tank .There are (3) white and(2)red wires .See if they are showing signs of damage from heat more than likley they are because when you "boost" or jump these bikes you burn a very weak diode witch regulates the charging time from the stator i would check ebay for the best price on a new regulater rectifier you may need one.I had the same problem with my 2000 model r6.good luck bro!
I'd start 15mm higher and work up 5 mm at a time from there.
You'll know when you get to the point you don't like.
Are you going to do anything with the front?
If you do you'll want to make adjustments one end at a time.
I never lengthened my stand. The bike leans at a pretty steep angle, but it's a non issue to me.
