You might have what is called vapor lock. The fuel gets so hot that it boils in the fuel pump or the lines. Do this test spay water on the fuel pump to cool it off . ( this only works for a few minutes before it gets to hot and vapor locks again ) If you can Keep the engine heat Off the lines and the Fuel pump it might help. If you have metal fuel lines near a heat source rap them with something such as rubber fuel line sliced down the middle to keep the heat off them If you are using an aftermarket electric fuel pump relocate it down low near the gas tank ( they work better pushing than pulling ) away from any heat source such as exhaust If your using the stock fuel pump try replacing it with a new one it might be getting weak Replace the fuel filter while your at it.

Engine light


I've restarted my RSTD in Southwest U.S. temperatures well above 100F after short stops and experienced the same symptoms; choking the engine fully prior to a restart and releasing the choke after the engine fires seems to eliminate the stall. I suspect that heat rising from the engine boils most of the fuel from the carburetor bowls, and full choke pulls enough fuel back in to keep the engine running.

The owner's manual recommends 20W-40 in that temperature range. DO NOT USE ANY OIL MARKED "ENERGY CONSERVING", it contains molybdenum disulfide (a friction modifier) and may make the clutch slip. Tourers that drive long distances and operate in a wide range of temperatures generally recommend synthetic lubricants - Mobil Delvac 1, Mobil-1 SUV and Shell Rotella T Synthetic are names that keep popping up. Personally, I've been using Rotella-T (T6) synthetic for 111,000 miles (and used Mobil-1 0W-40 for 9,000 miles prior to that), and the bike has required nothing but routine maintenance. I've used the bike in temperatures from 11F to 118F (ambient) without negative effect.

Sounds like the battery is shorted. Heat is one of the worst enemies of any battery. On a Softail it's almost in an oven. The day was hot so the engine oil was hot as well. Since the battery sits inside the "horseshoe" oil tank, it is surrounded by hot oil trying to get rid of the heat.

Take your battery to the nearest auto parts house and have it tested. Usually this is a free service.

Battery will not keep a charge.


Get a 2 amp charger and charge the battery fo 3 hours or so. While the battery is charging,check the fuses and check the wiring harness connections between the flywheel and the battery.

Start the bike and rev it up. Use a DC voltmeter to check the battery voltage while running. The voltmeter should read 14+ volts. If not then there may be a problem with the stator.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

2004 Yamaha V-star 650, wont start.


change the coil you may not think it got hot but sometimes a coil can overheat on the inside just enough to break the copper winding. when riding hard slow down for a couple of miles to give everything time to get back to normal temps before shutting it off

Maybe someone put a spud up yer exhaust pipe -] Seriously though, could be the fuel pump on it's way out? Does it do it an all of the three maps? But from what you say it sounds like fuel, also check fuel lines aren't kinked, Check the tank breather is breathing ect ect
