I would say lack of fuel. Choke or enricher not working properly. Motor needs retimed.the fact it started means ur getting spark. Weather or not at the right time. Try a shot of brake kleen down bore&try again. If it starts right up the timing is close, if it dies again, ur not getting enough gas.
I have always been annoyed with this on my 08 FLHX. Honestly, I fixed alot of the problem zip tying all the harnessess in the fairing. Also, the bottom of the radio unit sits almost right on top of the bolts for the handle bar clamps. I removed the radio unit and put a strip of 1/8 thick rubber on the bottom of it. That keeps the bottom of the metal radio housing.
You steering head might need to be lubed also...mine had none in it when I got it. Put the bike on a bike jack and lift the tires off the ground. Turn the handle bars to full right position and release. Watch the bars swing left to right. If it swings back and forth, more than 4 times, before coming to a stop in the straight position, it might need to be tightened a bit.
You are never going to get rid of it all...I have tried. But you can get most of it. Turning the radio up really loud helps this problem too!
hi, if when you start your bike you press the gear lever down to go to 1st from neutral and then pull it back up to go to 2nd,3rd,4th and 5th then the only way to get back into first gear is to press the gear lever down 4 times to get it back into 1st gear their is no quicker way to do this you have to work your way back down the gears.
if your coming to a stop quick then just pull the clutch in and keep pushing the lever down until it dont push down any further it will only go down 1 gear at a time so you will need to push it down 4 times but you dont need to count you can just keep pressing it down the gears until it dont go down any more then you know this is first, you need to keep the clutch in when doing this.
how ever if your slowing down is more gradual then what you can do is go from 5th down to 4th then let engine slow the bike down then when the revs drop down change down to 3rd and so on until you get ot 1st gear.
if your coming to a stop quick say at lights or junction then if the bike is in 5th gear then you can change down the gears once the bike has stopped just hold the clutch in when you stop and keep tapping the gear lever down until you feel that its not going down any more gears this way you know its in 1st without having to cound down the gears, their id no quicker way of going down the gears to get to 1st.
i hope i have read your question right and gave you the answer you was looking for if i got the question wrong then please explain then i can assist you further ok
Keep on bleeding until all air bubbles goes out but never-never let your brake fluid reservoir empty, as you bleed the brake, fill the reservoir immediatel to full level. Do you know how to bleed properly? Make sure the engine and key is is off position. Pump the foot brake 6 or 7 times until it becomes hard, keep pedal down, open brake nipple relase fluid as soon it stop spurting, close tight and repeat process until all air bubbles are out from system, fill brake fluid reservoir. As the bike is on centre stand,hand turn the back wheel and press foot brake it should stop it from turning which means it is now working properly. Good enough advise?
Sounds to me like it could be a few things... pretty interesting that it runs and shuts down...sits for a little while then fires back up.
Could be something as simple as a bad ground.. maybe it needs cleaned.. if the ground is making very little contact.. the bike would run bad, and because its direct current it has to flow. The metal in the motor frame etc will hold so much DC current.. but *** soon as it load up the bike would stop sparking.
Let it sit for a while, DC trickles into the battery through the slight contact, bike fires back up.
could be bad venting of your fuel tank, or a partial clog at the pet ****.. the first is pretty easy to check, open your fuel cap and start the bike..if it does the same thing then its not a vent problem.
One thing that does happen on the Radian, is the reserve fuel screen inside the tank comes loose, and then everything inside the that has built up over the years either partially clogs the pet ****, or the hose, or both.
Take the tank off, pull the pet **** off..if it still has two intact tubes with good screens..you probably don't have any junk in your line..but I would pull the line off and blow through it any way... it could be some type of blockage, when the bike sets the fuel seep through, but when it runs it eventually creates a vaccuum that stops the fuel flow.
Those are my two first thoughts... good luck!!
