Question about Motorcycles
My girlfriends '06 Fatboy with 3000 miles on it died twice this past Sunday on our 150 ride. Both times it happened at cruising speed (55 mph). The first time it started right up and the second time it had to sit for a minute or two. Any ideas on what could be the cause of this?
Sounds like maybe your ignition module is getting hot and shutting down, once this starts they gradually become more sensitive to heat and vibration need to replace to see if that is the problem no way to test unless you start it and hold a blow dryer on it if it kills the bike below operating temperatures that's probably your problem. but if you get it to hot with the blow dryer you could fry it all together. risky test I know I personally would try to remount the module someplace where there is more airflow and that will probably fix it too. had to do that with a sportster awhile back. it had an aftermarket crane cams hi 4 ignition behind the covers right next to the rotor cup on the end of the crank no flow what so ever. but that is where crane suggested putting it. I moved it out by the battery and he has never had a problem since.

This is a typical fuel stravation at tht speed,time for a tune up and carburator cleaning, fuel line and the fuel pump check and prolly overhauls.

First of all, your oil level has nothing to do with your bike stalling. Best way to check it is with engine cold. Shoot for halfway between full and add marks.Your levels are normal. The engine retains some oil after running. It takes awhile to drain back into the case.Please clarify your stalling problem. How fast were you going? Sitting still. Only upon startup after a drive?
