SOURCE: 1981 Wide Glide Bike is missing and backfiring

open up the ignition cover plate and check the backing plate. it may have come loose and threw the bike out of time.
make sure your plug wires are plugged on tight and the coil wires are secure.
It is most definitely a timing problem.

SOURCE: adding a factory intercom on a Electra Glide Classic

Yes, It's pretty expensive, I would talk with someone at a dealer who really know exactly whats involved. you may be better served by using Cardo's Scalia Teamset. I'd just go for the FLHTCU personally, 4 speakers, cb, intercom, fairing lowers, better resale.

SOURCE: Fuel injected electra-glide stalls frequently

D: could be a coil, temperature (heat) can cause an open internally. Could also be the cam rotor sensor (more likely) located under the timing plate on the right side crank case (2 rivits or screws). you can cause this to happen for testing with a hair dryer. Start bike cold, and heat item in question and see if it shut's down early. Could possibly be an ECU, but when they fail it's usually done for good.

Replaced clutch, oil, cables...1998 electra glide classic..bike is hard to get into neutral once it is warmed up..


Make sure you do not overfill the primary. when putting the oil in the primary, have the bikes standing as straight up as possible. Add oil only until it comes to the bottom of the clutch spring. If you put too much oil in the primary, the oil will get in between the plates when the clutch is released and act like the oil in a automatic transmission torque converter. It will continue to drive just enough so that you cannot find neutral with the engine running.

Otherwise, you must make sure all clutch adjustments are correct. Loosen clutch cable all the way. Adjust clutch release adjuster behind derby cover, all the way in and back off one half to one complete turn, readjust cable for 1/8" freeplay.

Our 2003 ultra classic runs good while cool but as it gets hotter it starts missing


Sounds like it's running really rich. Does it smell like it's running rich? If so, you need to take it to a dealer if it's a fuel injected bike. If it's a carburated bike, check the air filter or enricher. Anything any further in the carb requires disassembly of the carburator.
