SOURCE: Was riding and my bike

You didn't tell me if your bike was fuel injected or equipped with a carburetor but your problem could be any combination of a lot of things. It could be fuel related with an inoperative injector, a vacuum leak on the intake or around the carburetor, trash in the carburetor, or something as simple as the vacuum hose for the VOES has a leak in it.

It could be a problem with the ignition unit as well. It could be in the "brain box" of the ignition unit or the sensor in the timer cavity. It could be a coil on the verge of total failure or a bad spark plug wire.

With no more information, it would just be a guess as to what your problem might be. The only way to figure it out is to choose a starting point and start checking and eliminating as much as you can. Now. testing some components is not as easy as some think. Take the ignition unit. Harley gives you specific readings you should get when testing the unit but then they tell you that you must use a particular type of meter or you may not get these readings. Just check what you can and if you can't find it, then a trip to the dealer may be the only option.

Good luck

2005 Electraglide, 30K. Oil pressure for the first 29K was at 32 when running, close to 0 at idle. Now she is running at about 45-50 and idling at about 30. Any suggestions on why the sudden change? It...

What weight oil were you running?

I don't recommend synthetic oil in H-D because it is too slick for the type bearings Harley uses.

We like to run Castrol 4T in our Harleys.

Cant think of why it would boost your pressure after getting hot

2006 harley ultra with true dual exhaust. back fire and sputteres and dies on cold start, will not idle, after running a few minutes on the road it clears up. only does it when its cold,

did you upgrade the air filter and the module for the fuel injection.the minute you change exhaust it messes up the 02 sensor,and the map readings etc.
