    I found out that you need to prim it and crank it for 3 seconds, then let it sit. then try and crank it again. After it starts swap it to on.

    also there is a reserve tank so dont use that.

    ill up load a manual i found of a similar model but I'm still missing the original

    The bike has a lot of trouble starting. Once I get it started and warmed up, it was running just fine, but after about 45 mins. of slow stop and go riding (45 mins.) It started giving me problems. I'm thinking it either overheated or it's out of gas, but I can still hear plenty of gas sloshing around in the tank. Any other ideas? Could there be a problem with the carbs?

Oil leaking from voltage regulator conector and bike will not start on 2003 dyna wide glide

The oil leaking from the voltage regulator connection has nothing to do with the bike not starting. To stop the leak, you'll have to go into the primary and pull the stator out. Pull the plug out of the hole from the inside, clean the oil off the plug and out of the hole. Then, put a good coat of RTV on the plug and push it back into the hole. Put the bike back together.

As for the no start problem, since I don't know anything about the ECM equipped bikes, I cannot help you there. Sorry.

Good Luck

Bike starts and runs but will not idle properly and dies but ill start right away give a little gas and dies. The gas is a year old could that be the problem 10 hrs on the bike

Bofore doing anything else, you should flush the system and put fresh gas in. This is probably what is causing the problem... the Carburettor probably wants a good cleaning too.

I have a 1997 FLHRI The bike wants to rev and runs hot

I guess the guy above does not know that FLHR-I means injected no carb anyway..You problem is a heat sensor. Its reading cold when the bike is heated up an should be kicking down. Its on the back of the front jug left side. Unscrew it and replace it. Easy fix.

Carb cleaning questions

The beast hates to be cold, try using oxy guard on all terminals. Recommend you keep the gas clean and run the bike, it likes to run.
