Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles

1 Answer

Stalling problems I had an issue with my 2013 Softail Classic running really rough and then stalling out, it had less than 500 miles on it. Of course, it chose to do it the first time while I was in the middle of a tight turn pulling out from a parking lot. It didn't end well, after a broken ankle & foot, I'm now sporting several screws and a steel plate. After a couple trips to the dealership and it stranding my husband, it was later discovered that the fuel line check valve was faulty. I was curious if anyone else had ever experienced such an issue. Thanks for your time....

SOURCE: Fuel injected electra-glide stalls frequently

D: could be a coil, temperature (heat) can cause an open internally. Could also be the cam rotor sensor (more likely) located under the timing plate on the right side crank case (2 rivits or screws). you can cause this to happen for testing with a hair dryer. Start bike cold, and heat item in question and see if it shut's down early. Could possibly be an ECU, but when they fail it's usually done for good.

SOURCE: Stalling

does it have a fuel pump? It could be going bad.. if not, it could be a bad battery...but since it looks like a 2008 its doubtful and could be just loose or dirty connections in the battery circuit.

SOURCE: The bike has run fine until two weeks ago when it

The only 2 thing that would cause that(rough running and gas leak) are either a leaky fuel line or a clogged injector.
You need to inspect the bike thoroughly to find the origin of the leak. If it's from the injectors then you need to take it to a shop for a professional cleaning. You can try to take them out and soak them in carburetor cleaning solution.

How long do running shoes last?

Running shoes last roughly between 300-500 miles or between 4-6 months. These are rough estimates as there are several factors that contribute to the breakdown of your shoe, like how often you are running, what surface you are running on, and other factors like heat and weight.

Engine stalling

I also have 1996 Maxima SE and had same problem. After several months of searching and asking around, I was able to fix the problem by replacing the Mass Air Flow sensor. I replaced with aftermarket MAF and paid $80 with lifetime warranty and the car runs better with better gas milage.
To replace the part takes less than 30 mins., I would recommend replacing the part as maintenance. Otherwise, you can take it to a mechanic and they may spend hours trying to troubleshoot your problem. During my research, there are so many different things that could cause the car to stall and ride rough. I am NOT a mechanic and take my advice for what it is worth and replace the part. It will be less expense if it fixes the problem otherwise you'll need to take to mechanic. They will charge you at least $400 to $500 for an half-hour job.

Good luck. I know how frustrating it can be with repairing the car cost more than it is cost.

Rough idle

I took mine in to change the plugs and they said there are four O2 sensors in the fuel mixture system and two were bad. I didn't replace them since they were a little pricey ($500 to replace both) and I have 103,000 on the car. Has very similar roughness and occasional oscillations, but no stalling. Hope this helps.
