SOURCE: Engine light on/off sporadically while riding.

You don't have that on a 2002. Do you have a power commander on it? Sounds typical of the older style power commander ( IIIr ) one thing to pay attention to is does it do it under load? If it's not showing any historic codes and the bike rides fine, and you have a power commander 3r I wouldn't worry. It's normal. The older power commander lies to the ecm. Sometimes it gets confused and kind of glitches ( that's where the light comes from ) but if it has running issues to I would take it to a shop to find out what the codes are and go from there.

SOURCE: After riding for about 20

Most of the time when you have this sort of problem it is the coil. But if you are loosing all electrical it is not the coil. But if it is just loosing power and dieing then it is the coil. If it is loosing all electrical then it has to be somewhere in the ignition switch. You will have a hot wire going to the ignition switch that is hot all the time. Then you will have a wire that is hot when the key is on. Follow that wire down and it will be shorting somewhere when the engine heats up.

Could be a coil, spark plug wires or maybe you blew the gasket around the intake manifold and you're sucking cold air.

What does it mean when riding an ultra classic motorcycle when it gets hot going down the road it shuts off


Sounds like a main circuit breaker problem. There was a service bulletin for a breaker upgrade.

Harley-Davidson Service Bulletin M-1151: Main Circuit Breaker Replacement~Purpose: As recently advised in ML-390, Harley-Davidson has determined that a defect exists on certain 2001-2003 FL Touring and Police model motorcycles. These motorcycles have a condition whereby the 40 amp main circuit breaker could open due to reasons other than for which it was designed, causing an unexpected interruption of all electrical power. This condition could cause a “quit while riding” situation, which could occur without warning and lead to a crash, thereby presenting a risk of death or injury to the rider.

This Harley-Davidson safety recal (code 0113) affected to the following motorcycle: Certain 2001-2003 FL Touring and Police model motorcycles, including FLHTCI, FLHTCUI, FLTRI, FLTRSEI-2, FLHPI, FLHPEI and FLHTPI, assembled/shipped from the York, Pennsylvania assembly plant between May, 2000 and September, 2003.

My 2000 Ultra Classic when riding the power goes completely out, engine and all. The run is about 20 to 30 minutes when everything stops. This doesn not happen on all runs. I wait about 2 minutes and...


When you're saying "everything stops", do you mean everything electrical stops? If that's the case and it restarts in about two minutes, it sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. I do not have a schematic for your bike but it has to be something that is not protected by the smaller fuses. If it were, the fuse would blow before the main tripped out. The main circuit breaker should be located right there with your other fuses. It'll be a metal can like device about a half inch wide, a half inch tall, and about an inch long. It should be 30-40 amps rated. Whatever the rating is, do not change it as it's designed to protect your wiring harness. It may have just gotten weak and needs to be replaced but this is rare. Have you added anything electrical lately? This could be just enough to "trip it over the edge".

Good Luck
Steve

I had a problem like that on my 2003 ultra classic. turns out there was a recall on some electric block in the fairing. It was a main connection power block kinda thing. Anyway they replaced it and then it never happened again.

it would ride a while on a hot day 25 min freeway and then just shut down. wait and cool down and it would restart.

I hope this helps.

When the bike is hot and crusising along a street the electrics will die and the bike comes to a dead stop. No ignition, the spedometer sticks at 28mph. I let the bike sit for 5 minutes then it starts and...


So, you didn't hit the "kill swith". LOL Ok.

It sounds like something is tripping your main circuit breaker. A circuit breaker will act like that. When something shorts out, it will cause a high current draw which causes the element in the circuit breaker to heat up and trip. Once it trips, it takes a few minutes for it to cool but once it cools, it resets itself. I prefer this to a fuse which blows and then you've got to have a replacement. If you don't have a replacement, you're just stuck there until you find one.

Now, you may have a short which is not unusual on a dresser since there are so many wires running to the front end under the fairing. Look for a bare wire right where the wires go into the fairing from the frame. There is a lot of flexing motion at that point and a high probablility of a wire rubbed bare.

Have you added any extra accessories to the bike? If so, you may have overloaded the main circuit. Seems that bike has a 30 amp main breaker in it. If you added another set of highway lights or something like that, you may have exceeded the maximum current handling capability of the wiring harness and the breaker is tripping to protect the harness.

If you have a wiring diagram, check for devices that run off the main breaker only. The rest of the stuff should have it's own fuses and if you're not blowing any of those, it sounds like something on the main breaker alone.

Check the chrome cover that covers your igniton coil. I've seen them come loose, fall down onto the coil and short the igniton out as well. When the engine stops running. the thing will move and unshort the short.

Good Luck
Steve

2002 Harley Davidson Electra Glide FLHTPI loses all electrical.


I had the same problem on my 2002 Electra Glide, started last year, 2012 and got worse this year, could not drive it more then 5 minutes and all electrical died for just a few seconds and would come back on, start bike again, sure enough it would die again, and again, and again.
What I did that fixed the problem was simple and only cost $7 Canaadian.
Take off the seat,
In front of the battery you will notice a relay, change it.problem fixed
Has been working without a problem all summer.
One thing to note, the relay has two posts, one is copper the other is aluminum, the positive with the two wires goes on the copper post.
If you can't figure out where the other wire goes you should not be riding a Harley. LOL
I switched out the old relay in the spring and to this day, Oct 4, it has never happened again.
Good luck, hope it works for you.

Call your local dealer and have them run your vin( Vehicle Identification Number ) through HD Net to see if you have any outstanding recalls. There was a recall on the circuit breaker and the ignition switch around that time of production. better to be safe than sorry.
