Make sure your rear brake pedal has freeplay in it. when you slowly push the lever down by hand you should be able to feel some freeplay. if not the the reason it keeps staying on is because the vibration of the motor is actually pumping up your brake ( light too ) and not releasing it until it bleeds off the pressure.

SOURCE: 2002 Dyna wide glide. Will not IDLE

not running for a year! You have a varnish buildup in the low end circuit of the carb. You will need to remove the carb and do a full teardown of the carb to properly rectify this problem. SOMETIMES we are able to free up the passages by putting SEA FOAM cleaner in the tank , fill her up with fresh fuel and ride through the tank and it will clear up. SEA FOAM can be purchased at an auto parts store and is sometimes very effective. 1/4 cup to full tank fuel.

SOURCE: I have a 99 road

It sounds like a fuel flow restriction somewhere. Sure, it'll start every time and idle for a while but take it down the road a bit. If it quits, I'd suspect that for some reason it's not getting fuel to the engine from the tank. Loosen the fuel cap, the cap vent may be bad. The vented cap the right side tank cap. If it's fuel injected, it could be the fuel pump or something. It sounds like a fuel problem to me.

Good Luck

SOURCE: my dyna super glide shuts

Sounds like an electrical problem. Maybe the ignition module is overheating and when it cools it works again. That depends on what ignition you have also. Possible that you have a chassis electrical overload and a circuit breaker trips. If you are in a place that is quiet when it stalls listen very carefully and you might hear a click. If you hear a click try and start the motor, if it runs then chances are it is a breaker. You will need to find which one and then find why you have an overload of amps, usually a shorted wire or bad ignition switch however electrical problems are tough to cure.
I could list a lot of things to do but it would depend on your skills. If you don't normally work on your bike but have a mechanic then you should take it to him. Otherwise get a schematic (In the back of the factory manual) and start tracing and testing.
An ignition is usually tested by replacing it.

Why would my 1998dyna wide glide harley just shut down after riding a while,i turn it off for 15 minutes, fire it back up and it just dies out?

I have a Harley, They say that HD stands for Hundred Dollars, they are right. Change the coil and plugs, It uses a Wasted Spark system and the plugs don't last plus the coil won't produce high voltage when hot.
Mine is an XLCH1000

Why would my harley davidson 1998 dyna wide glide stop running after a short trip after being shut off for 20 minutes and restarted?

when it shuts down does it sputter first or is the shut down immediate without warning. sputtering is usually a condition of lack of fuel.any intake leak at the manifold especially at the head will cause "sneezing" out of the carb. Restart can be difficult and intermittent. A weak ignition module especially the adjustable kind can be unpredictable. a lot of the after markets are adjustable.A 1998 scooter tells me you have an Evo and being it's 16yrs old the likelihood of having a stock module is nil. check the plug where the module plugs to the ignition harness as well. Often times,because of it's age,these pins turn green or they either bend or they pull out just enough to break contact. I've also experience cracking of the wire insulation causing temporary short. shutting down the engine and difficult restarts.As with all jobs,check the simplest and obvious and don't start buying parts until you have checked all connections especially at the module where it meets the ignition harness.

Were is the oil dip stick on a 2004 dyna wide glide

Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on later models unscrews, on earlier models it just pulls out with moderate force, on Softail and Sportster models the dipstick is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck and have nice day.

2008 dyna wide glide won't hold idel speed after 15 minutes of running. Changed spark plugs, good for 2 days then same problem back. Bad gasoline?

If the bike is equipped with a carburetor, try not using the enricher (choke) so long. The enricher circuit in the carburetor is extremely rich. I see people let their bikes run for almost ten minutes with the enricher on and they can't figure out why they are fouling plugs. Only run the enricher until you can get the engine to run with the throttle. I use the throttle lock located on the underside of the throttle grip. Just idle the engine up that about 1500-1700 RPM, turn the enricher off, and tighten the little knob just enough to hold the throttle and keep the engine running until it warms up. Prevents you from fouling plugs. If this is not the case or you have fuel injection on your bike, you may need to take it to a qualified mechanic. I don't advise tearing into your carb or fuel injection unless you know what you're doing.

Good Luck
