Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide
Had the bike a short time. When purchased it had a dud regulator, I had a mechanic fix this (although he fitted a reg off a twin cam) This fixed the charging issue.
Bike was running good then I put it in for a major service (same mechanic) First ride I could open it up it started coughing backfiring and generally running rough, got it home but then could not start it.
Next day mechanic came out & found torn fuel pump diaphragm which was replaced, bike went good for a day then back to problems.
This time mate & I found a rusted out plug lead and evidence of a plug not firing. Have changed both items (both plugs & leads) however its still playing up.
Am thinking coil but maybe also ignition timing sensor. I'm only filling the bike with premium high octane fuel from a reputable supplier same place I fill the car.
Anyone know if I can and how to test the ignition timing sensor> I've purchased a new screaming eagle coil and yet to get the correct module to accompany this.
Any help would be much appreciated. Cheers
Check plugs and wires, also coil my be weak, sometimes a bad ground will cause this also and weak battery. I've had these problems before on my older Harleys that I built
