The pulsing could be the alarm module. When bike is turned of, you will get small draw for a minute or so and then it should go very low, below a miliamp or so. This is the alarm module setting itself. Check for this. Is battery gone flat while checks were being made? Make sure ignition switch is on when disconnecting battery if alarm (Stock HD) is fitted. If not, alarm module gets confused and can cause problems. The corrct procedure for disconnecting a battery from an alarm fitted HS is - alarm off, ignition switch on, pull main fuse (Maxi Fuse), disconnect battery. To fit, ignition stitch off, connect battery then install main fuse.
Yes the sound you hear is the fuel pump, check the fuse for the circuit, also does the bike have an alarm or imobiliser fitted, some use the fuel pump circuit to imobilise the bike, check the switch fitted to the stand is not sticking when the stand is up, also check the pump wires inside the connector for corrosion or broken contacts, the fuel pump will only prime when it is taking up the pressure, if it is full you may not get a noticabe noise,
HI, SOUNDS LIKE THE IMOBILISER HAS NOT TURNED OFF, YOU HAVE NOW RECHARGED THE BATERY, I WOULD THINK THAT THE BATERY INSIDE THE ALARM UNIT IS ALSO FLAT, CHECK THE FUSE FITTED TO THE ALARM HARNES , IT COULD BE YOU HAVE DISCONECTED A WIRE OR BLOWN A FUSE WHEN REPLACING THE BATERY, RE CHECK ALL CUT OFF SWITCHES, SIDE STAND IN THE UP POSITION, AND ALSO TRY RESETING THE IMOBILISER
There are two safety switches that you may need to test. 1) Neutral safety switch- this switch is what tells the bike that it's in neutral and allows the starter to engage. 2) Kickstand safety switch- this switch will not allow the bike to run in gear if the kickstand is down. My initial guess is the neutral safety switch. If the neutral safety switch is bad, then you will not be able to start the bike with the kickstand down because the bike thinks that it's in gear (even if in neutral). This also may explain why the initial intermitent problem of not starting when warm since the metal contacts will expand and possibly not make contact when warmed up. Are you trying to start the bike with the kickstand up or down? If it were the kickstand safety switch, the bike would probably start okay and then die when you put it in gear.
Sorry to hear about your problem. The good news is it wont last long and you can most likely fix it with a can of WD40. When you washed the bike you got the wires wet and that can cause a short which will prevent the bike from igniting. Another thing you want to make sure did not happen is getting water in the air filter, if that happens you will **** water in through the carbs and that can be an issue. Water is heavier than gas and it will not **** through the lets in the carbs. You may need to drain the float bowls to insure there is no water in them. One drop in each bowl is enough to stop the bike from running. Use the WD40 to spray in all the fuses that you took out. I think you just got everything wet. Water in the carbs may be the bigger issue. Let me know if you need any further assistance. Regards, RSelvy
