I am not sure but you may have a look at your fuel line location. Sounds like the fuel line(s) may be getting hot after riding awhile creating a vapor lock in the line.

Need more info

How many Spark Plugs did you remove & what do they look like?

Have you checked for codes?

Have you had a professional scanner on it, to look at fuel trim
& oxygen sensor data

Have you checked fuel pressure?

Is the exhaust converter blocked from years of cylinder misfires?

Did you buy it used & bought someone problems?

If you never replace the spark plugs every 3 years & stay on top
of the well known & all too famous ford ignition coil problems, you
have what you have.

I have a 99 road king with a 95 CI new engine. Yesterday after riding for about 80 miles, the bike stopped running. I left from a signal, shifted into 2nd and the engine backfired and shut off. After...


It sounds like a fuel flow restriction somewhere. Sure, it'll start every time and idle for a while but take it down the road a bit. If it quits, I'd suspect that for some reason it's not getting fuel to the engine from the tank. Loosen the fuel cap, the cap vent may be bad. The vented cap the right side tank cap. If it's fuel injected, it could be the fuel pump or something. It sounds like a fuel problem to me.

Good Luck

When riding down the road bike runs great for 10 mins then shuts completly off then starts right back up


It sound like you might have a fuel tank cap that isn't venting, if you have another key try placing it in the fiel cap and then when the bike starts to cut out pop open the cap and see if it will pick back up, if it does then you need to replce the fuel cap.

The fuel filter may have got to the end of it's life and will need to be replace. Start with the simple and replace the fuel filter. The filter should be replaced 15,000 mile or once a year to ensure that the fuel system is running 100%. Good luck and keep me posted.

Shuts off spits and sputters


Check for vacume leaks first. Rubber lines..gaskets to carbs ect. Also remove and blow out your fuel line to tank and change out filter. Hope this helps.:)

06 Road King Classice shuts off when in 4th gear beloe 50mph


It's normal for the check engine light to take from 0 to a couple seconds to turn off. The computer runs a system check. Put an oil pressure gauge on the bike and watch it closely. If your pressure drops when the bike loses power, the engine may be locking up from lack of oil. Another possibility is your lean-angle cut-off switch is defective. The switch cuts power to the bike in case you lay it down. Harley also has had problems with their fuel injection system losing power for no apparent reason.
