SOURCE: location of ignition module on a 2001 harley xl1200c

Hi!
I hope you are looking for the contact breaker module? if so there should be a round cover with possibly six screws sitting at the base of your Cylinders with Harley Davidson written on it or if aftermarket maybe smooth/Chrome or Ride to Live etc., that's where mine is on a FLHR
Hope this got you there!
Press the Blue button please if happy with my FREE effort! Thank You!

I would check the coil first and see if it needs replaced .If it's new and you still have reciept ,take and get a replacement coil for the one you bought and make sure your wires coming out of everything have power be tracing the system to see if there might be something shorting.

SOURCE: I pulled off the cam cover and the cam came out

What you are talking about is the timer cavity cover and it has a "V" for "V-twin". Ok, you must drill the two rivets to get the cover off. Use a larger drill and carefully drill until the head of the rivet comes loose. Do not drill completely through the cover.

Once you get the cover off, you'll see the Hall Effect sensor that triggers the ignition unit. Make a mark on the sensor plate and on the inside of the cam chest cover so that you can reinstall the sensor in exactly the same position when you put it back in upon reassembly. Then, take the two stanchions out and take the plate out. It will not come out of the cover due to the wiring. You'll have to "unpin" the three pronged plug to get the wires out but you can work around them. You'll see a "cup" that is bolted to the #2 camshaft. Remove this cup and it will come off the camshaft. Then the cam cover should come off the engine.

Now, you listed this as a problem with a '93 model XLH. If per chance this is a Big Twin, it's basically the same thing.

When you go to put it back together and need information as to cam timing, please repost.

Good Luck

Yes, you do have to drill the heads off the rivets to get the cover off the timer cavity. Drill just enough to get the heads off the rivets with a large diameter drill bit. Before you remove the old ignition unit, mark the unit and the inside of the timer cavity so that you can install the new unit in EXACTLY the same position. This way you'll get the timing right. Do not use standard rivets to reinstall the cover plate. They are special rivets. Standard rivets will allow the broke piece to drop into the timer cavity and destroy your igniton system. You can get the rivets from you local dealer or you can replace the cover with a decorative aftermarket cover that uses screws instead of rivets.

Good Luck

Crank sensor location


Hi Anonymous, on a 2001 XL 1200C there is no Crank Position Sensor, it is called a Cam Position Sensor and is located behind the timing plate on the cam cover. For running roughly the usual suspects are:
1. Spark plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discharged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals,
ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. Water or dirt in fuel system, carburetor or filter.
9. Fuel tank vent system plugged or carburetor vent line closed off.
10. Carburetor controls misadjusted.
11. Damaged carburetor.
12. Loose or dirty ignition module connector at crankcase.
13. Faulty MAP, CKP, and or CMP sensors.
14. Incorrect valve timing.
15. Weak or broken valve springs.
16. Damage intake or exhaust vale.
This should keep you busy for awhile.

Sounds like it is possibly the cam sensor. It is located under the round cover on the lower right side of the engine. The cover is held on by 2 rivets. If this is indeed the problem, you will have to re-time the bike after replacing the sensor.

1999 xl changed module changed coil bypassed kill switch and bank angle switch still no spark


Did you change the sensor in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine? It's behind the round plate on the cam chest cover. If still original, there are two rivets holding the cover on. Carefully drill the heads off the rivets. Do not drill any deeper than that. Once the plate comes off, you'll see the Hall effect sensor in the cavity. Mark the plate and the inside of the timer cavity so that you can remove the old plate and get a new sensor in the cavity in EXACTLY the same position. There is a plug underneath the engine that you will have to take the wires out of to get them out of the small hole. DO NOT USE STANDARD POP RIVETS TO SECURE THE PLATE BACK OVER THE TIMER CAVITY HOLE. These are special rivets that you can get from you dealership. Or, you can put an aftermarket plate that uses screws instead of rivets in the holes.

Good Luck

Motorcycle starts and will run for 3to 5 minutes and will die out while riding and will not start after it dies out but after 5 minutes it will start again and run for a short period of time i put new fuel...


Ok, you've either got a lose of spark problem or a fuel problem. To solve your problem, you've got to figure out which one you've got. The next time it does this, take a spare set of spark plugs and put them in the plug wires. Ground them good to the engine and press the start button while watching them. Do you have a good spark. If so, now you've narrowed your problem to a fuel issue. If not, you've got an electrical problem.

Fuel problems are the simpliest. First, loosen but don't remove your gas cap and ride the bike. If this fixes the problem, replace the fuel cap as the vent valve in the cap has went bad. Check for full fuel fuel flow through the petcock. Your bike may have one of the vacuum operated petcocks. These are notorious for giving problems. I'd suggest replacing it with a high quality manually operated petcock if it proves to be your problem. To test it, remove the fuel hose and the smaller vacuum hose on the rear of the petcock. Using a hand operated vacuum pump. apply vacuum to the nipple on the backside of the petcock. You should have a full flow of fuel through the petcock. If not, replace the thing.

If you don't have a spark when you check the plugs, start carrying a can of "component cooler" with you. The next time it does this, spray the ignition module and see if that brings the bike back to life immediately. Try spraying the pickup module in the timer cavity. You may have to drill the rivets out of the cover to get to this component. Do not replace the rivets with standard rivets,,They're special rivets, get them a the Harley shop. When you spray something with the component cooler and your bike come back to life immediately. You've found a temp problem. Replace that component.

Good Luck

How do I change the ignition module on my 2002 harley davidson 1200 bike


If you want to change the module, it simply unplugs and another plugs in. The sensor plate is located in the timer cover. Drill out the rivets and mark the plate and the inside of the timer cover. Remove the plate and install the new plate getting it as close to the same position as the original as possible.

Good luck
