Question about Harley Davidson XLH 883 Sportster Motorcycles
Check for a blockage in your fuel tank breather. Run with the filler cap cracked open a bit so it doesn't seal. If the problem goes away, you will need to find the tank brather and work out why it is blocked.

How's the jetting on the carb. as well as the float height. Does it star up after a minute or do you have to wait longer> if it starts up within a minute but thens dies within a minute then I would check the jetting and float height, the other problem could be your ignition plate. If it won't start until it cools down, then I would replace the ignitionplate. one easy way to check is make sure the bike is cold and put a hair dryer on the plate to heat it up . see if you can get it to not work just by heating up the plate. if it is the bad part buy the Screamin eagel version of the plate. It's cheaper and has a better performance curve to it.
