Question about 2005 Harley Davidson FXSTS - FXSTSI Springer Softail
I have a 1991 softail with a s&s E carb. Up until two days ago never had a problem but now when I take the choke off it runs for about five minutes then dies! I can crank it till the battery dies but it acts like its not getting any fuel. After about half an hour it will start with the choke on only! Where should I start?
I have a 1987 Softail and had a similar problem, but worse. That is some good advise to check the tank screen, I bet you will find your problem there. I found my problem in the tank with a clogged screen, stuff in tank so I flushed it with some clean fuel. I also flushed the fuel line cause I found trash in the carb, so then I rebuilt the carb (on your S&S you can take the float bowel off with out removing the carb to check for trash that may have gotten past the screen in the tank). I'm big on overkill though,you may only have to work on the tank.
