Question about 2001 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
I have a 1987 harley softail custom 1340cc that wont start, checked & cleaned the spark plugs took out the airfilter etc. at times it is firing but wont run seems like it may be getting flooded etc.
tried starting with both the choke in & out but dont seem to make any difference, I dont know too much about harley's if anyone can help would be greatly appreciated
You say at times its fireing. sounds like ignition problems. does it have points? if so they may me worn out. I have an 87 sportster evo that has points in it.

Try taking the plugs out and turning it over to clear any fuel in the cylinders.
next you can also check spark at both plugs.
it may also be a bad batch of fuel was it just filled somewhere other than your normal fuel stop.
hope this helps
