2003 harley 1200 sportster won't start when warm tuns over no spark just changed coil no difference starts right away when cold


Hi Curtis, the CKP sensor needs compression to send correct signal to the ICM/ECM, make sure both spark plugs are in heads and use a grounded third plug to check for spark or hold spark plug cable close to spark plug in head. If still not getting spark the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Battery voltage below 8.7 volts, loose or broken battery cables especially ground cable to frame.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, MAP or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm.
For a prime suspect please visit the website below and good luck.

I just bought 01 sportster 1200 and the oil tank is filled with light brown milky oil that smells like gas 1st harley help please


Light brown milky oil that smells like gas is not good. Drain the oil from the tank and refill it with three quarts of fresh oil. Remove the oil filter and take the spark plugs out of the engine. Using the starter spin the engine over for about 20 seconds without the new filter on the engine. Then wait about five minutes and do it again. The reason for the short spin time and the longer wait is that you don't want to burn up your starter. Keep doing this until you get fresh clean oil coming out of the engine. Put the new filter on and replace the spark plugs. Now,top off the oil tank to the lower line on the dipstick with the bike on it's side stand. The lower line on the stick is "FULL COLD" and the upper line is "FULL HOT". Do not overfill or you'll wind up with a mess. Then fire the engine and let it run for a while. Then turn the engine off and let it sit. If you look in the oil tank immediately after shutting the engine down, the oil will look light brown due to the foaming on top of the oil. Allow the foam to disapate and it should look good.

Now, if gasoline contaminated your engine oil, it may have contaminated your primary oil as well. I'd change that too. Drain the oil and add one quart of specified type of oil.

Good Luck
Steve

Sportster 1200 hard starting after spark plug change ........... correct gap, and get spark . battery ck out good , engine rotates and sounds like wants to start , but does'nt ............. has gas .


I would pull plugs again and examine them. Also connections from plug wire to plug and to coil. Do you have the original plugs if engine was running ok then. might try them.

I have a 1999 1200c sportster. While riding down the road it began to sputter then quit running like it was out of gas. If I crank the throttle 3-4 times it will start but won't run. usually get a ''pop''...


well, if plugs are wet, try placing plugged in spark plug on the block, turn ingine, should spark blue. orange no good, none no. good lol.do both plugs and wires.if one works and the other one doesnt, you need a new plug.if both no good, having electronic ignition, most likely the coil is toast (make sure its plugged in good, cables and wires)

1995 Harley Sportster won't turn over.


sounds like the battery has dropped a cell,it will still have power but not enough to turn the bike over properly,harley atarters use a lot of current to turn over so a slightly weak battery will cause all sorts of grief,hope this helps...cheers
