Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard

1 Answer

Random shutdown-electrical? My softail will shutoff while I'm riding at very random times. When this happens it behaves as if it is out of gas but the lights and gauges all turn off too. Is there an electrical connection that anyone knows about on these bikes that could be shorting it out?

Ethanol gas ruins the Needle Valve tips and Valve Seats. This allows gas to get past them even when the Float is up causing the Needle valve to close. I bet your Oil is full of Gas as well.
Change oil, Add a Gas shutoff in the gas line and from now on shut the new Shutoff OFF a few seconds before turning off the Mower. OR by a new seat and needle valve for the Carb.

1999 evo s and s motor... riding along and just dies.. not a gas issue, have checked. electric start works but wont fire?? also noticed that no lights on dash when it happens.. then the lights come on and...


It might be a wiring issue or Battery issue.
Have your battery checked first. if the battery is the issue, it might not be charging. have your rectifier checked
if the battery is fine, check for grounded cables.



Hope this helps

Starts to skip and choke then stalls (when engine hot),


WANT TO BYPASS THE FUEL SHUTOFF? TAKE IT OUT,TAKE A PAIR OD CUTTERS AND CUT THE PLUNGER OFF. ALL THE PLUNGER DOES IS KILL THE FUEL TO THE MAIN JET. I DO THIS FOR MY CUSTOMERS ALL THE TIME! ITS A WHOLE LOT CHEAPER THAN A NEW ONE! THEY CAN BE COSTLY

Poulan ride on lawn mower will not run by itself--if you pour gas into the intake it will run until the sm amt runs out


It could be your fuel shutoff solenoid is not working or is stuck from gum, varnish or rust in your carb bowl. The fuel shutoff solenoid is located on the bottom of your carburetor. To check it, have someone, or yourself if you can reach the ignition switch, turn the key to the on position and back off several times while you listen by the carb. You should hear a click each time. If not, the carb will have to be taken off and cleaned and checked. You will probably find water and/or rust in your bowl plugging up the main jet. Best to take it to a shop.
