Re: start and stop
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Offhand that would be a normal reaction from the bike. When the battery is removed with the engine running, the voltage from the regulator will shoot up, the ignition system is designed to clamp down if the supply voltage is above its threshold. Additionally, the shutting down is to your advantage, since the voltage will go up, most of the bulbs, electricals and on-board electronics would burn out if subjected to prolong over voltage supply.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

This problem may have many reason but you can try one of the solutions, when suddenly engine stops and kick rod is going smooth without resistance try push and start by directly in 2nd gear or 1st gear and after it starts keep the engine running by giving small revs for a min....
Well, I'm not sure about the colors because you didn't tell me what year model bike you're working on. But, in the earlier models, up to 1999, the power for the start switch came directly off the "Run/Stop" switch. This is designed to keep you from running your battery down because the run/stop switch is in the "stop" position. If you run/stop switch is in the stop position, the starter doesn't have any "fire" to it and it won't turn the engine thereby telling you that you have something wrong. The old Shovelheads had a "Run/ Stop" switch in 1973, when it was in the "stop" position, I saw many batteries run completely down trying to start the bike. Harley rewired the switch so that the "Run/ Stop" switch had to be in the "Run" position in order to get the starter to work.
The bike could be fitted with a side stand cut off switch. this is to stop the rider driving off with the side stand down. also if the bike is in gear the bike should not start, this is linked to the clutch/gears. AGAIN IT STOPS THE RIDER FIRING UP THE BIKE AND THE NEXT thing he is aware of is his bike either taking off with out him or hitting a wall or car etc. hope this helps og
