It sounds like you may have a problem with your electronic ignition system or the crank position sensor. Here's a way to find out which it is. Stop by an electronic supply shop like Radio Shack or somewhere like that. Purchase a small can of "Component Cooler" and put it in your saddlebag or tool kit bag. The next time your bike suddenly quits on you, check for spark. If you have none, shoot a bit of the "component cooler" on the electronic ignition box and try to start the bike. Try this two or three times. If that doesn't help, try the same thing with the cam position sensor. If it does no good, then your problem is not temperature related.

Good Luck

2003 hd 1200 xl - ran fine for 20 mile ride, seems to be running out of fuel, will not accelerate or rev-up. restarts well, idles well, what should i check first?


Have you tried StarTron enzyme fuel treatment in the tank? It eats the bacterial crud that grows in today's gasolines and makes the difference between stalling out every time I start off from an intersection and running perfectly on my ride.
