hi its me again your problem sounds like you could have a slight air leak from your carb to manifold seal,this would make your motor run lean ,thereby requiring more fuel to richen the mixture to help on start up,the seal at fault is easy to replace with the min of tools and is sited on the rear of the carb where it is just pushed over the manifold and the carb is pushed into it,being made of rubber it is prone to cracking hope this cures your problem regards ian

SOURCE: 1999 sporster 1200 won't start
take the cover off the ignition and see if the backing plate came lose and put the bike out of time.
if it is not even trying to start when you are cranking it. then it has to be a timing issue.

One more thing to try...loosen the gas cap when it starts misbehaving. If the tank is losing its vent, then it can act that way.

The only running lights will be the front. Make sure there are 3 wires going to the front turn signals. If not then you have a set of rears on the front. The wire color for the running light side is blue. That can be ( or should be ) attached to an Orange/ white wire ( that is a typical key on hot for Harley ) I would also double check the ground on them as well, since the turn signal can actually pick up a ground by back feeding through itself, but would still not let the running light to work

put an multimeter on the battery prion to pushing the start button....wright down voltage of battery, turn bike over via the start button, did the battery drop below 9 volts? if so, go buy a battery from a reputabe dealer that will charge it for a mimimum of 10 hrs @.2a cycle, then retry....if u still have problems order a starter relay kit, test & clean the starter, install new parts & go riding..
