SOURCE: engine stalls after running for 25 miles?

Sounds like a fuel or intake problem to me, start the bike and spray brake cleaner onto the intake where it goes into the head, if the bike stumbles then you have an intake leak and have to change the seals or just tighten up the intake manifold. Another thing you could do is remove the carb (if it is carburated) remove the float bowl and clean everything including the jets, you could have some **** in there that is plugging things up. Also try removing the air cleaner and spraying a can of carb cleaner into and around the carb. Also try removing the gas tank and completely cleaning it and the petcock screen out, you could have something in the gas tank that is migrating to the petcock and causing a blockage.

SOURCE: tried starting bike it clicked

A good possibility. Take the battery out of the bike and take it to an autoparts store. Ask them to load test the battery. They'll usually test it for no charge.

Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a 97 jesse

I wished I could answer this question but I'm not familiar with any Jesse James Customs. Usually the fuses on a Harley are located under the seat or on an electrical panel depending on the year and model of the bike. The best suggestion I can give you is to look for the wiring harness. Wherever it's the largest is the center of the electrics and the most likely place for a fuse.

Good Luck
Steve

If there is spark out of one coil than its not the crank sensor.

does this have one coil assembly with 6 posts or are there three individual coils?

If it has three individual coils try swapping the coil that works with one that doesn't. If the one that wasn't working now works and the one that was working doesn't than you have a bad module. If the coil that was working still works and the coil that doesn't work still doesn't work than you have a bad coil.

If it has one coil with 6 posts I would replace the coil and the module. It is not uncommon for the coils to go bad and take out the module at the same time.

Bike has new battery and i was riding it,parked bike and came back a couple hours later and it was dead. push started it and it was fine,shut it off a couple times after riding places and it started up....


You should start by checking if its charging.
put a volt meter across the battery, it should read roughly 12v
then start the bike and it should rise to 14v
much more than this can blow bulbs and boil batteries

Truck broke down no fire.. replaced coil, ing mod,cap rotor.. got fire truck runs... truck down again no fire


I recently had a similar problem. I drive a 94 ram 1500 with the 3.9 6 cylinder. When I replaced the coil it started right up but then cut out and wouldn't start. So I wiggled the wire that plugs into the coil and tried to start it and it fired up again and the next day it wouldn't start. My problem was were the wires connected to the plug came loss. I went to the junk yard found any ram truck from 94 to 01 with either gas engine 3.9-5.2-5.9 and cut the plug off with decent amount of wire and installed it on mine and problem was solved. I also had a catalytic converter problem about 3 months after that was similar but it would start right up and run in neutral fine but when it gear it would bog down and eventually stall. Good luck.

Bike has been standing for 18 months without the engine being spun. Bike will not start without choke. when choke is off engine stalls


You need to completely drain and refill the gas - the gas you have is stale and doesn't have enough power to run the bike.
The battery needs to be fully charged - not just jump started. It wouldn't hurt to do an oil and filter change as well as a air filter and plug change.

Bike wont start


I would check for compression on the cylinders. a engine has to have fuel,fire and compression or it wont run. Check the specs to get the operable compression levels.

Kawasaki zepher - stalled and now wont start


poor fuel, gummed up carbs. blocked fuel filter, if you in the US get some Berrymans B12 double the dose and put it in the gas, hopefully you can get it to turn and draw it through to the carbs, it should clean them out, also you can try the berrymans spray carb cleaner, remove air cleaner, make sure slider in carb is up and spray a bunch in.
did you have lights when it died or nothing at all?
