Have a 2015 Harley street bob.Went for a ride this morning everything was fine,after about a hour stop,went to go home,and bike would try and cut out,and then idle fast when cut back in again.

Hi, Anonymous high idle on fuel injected models can be caused by a faulty IAC valve located on the top front of the induction module. It has either failed electronically and needs to be replaced or mechanically getting gummed by contaminated engine blow by. You can try cleaning the unit by removing the air cleaner and backing plate, unplug, unscrew and remove the IAC. Using carb cleaner and " LOW " volume compressed air to clean the metal pintle and shaft that is spring loaded and has an operating length of just under 1 inch. Adventurous souls who did not heed the low air warning have launched pintle and spring into parts unknown. There is no guarantee this will work but worth a try since a new one is $50.00

Sounds like you got some bad gas. I would either try an additive to remove water and some octane boost. If that doesn't work you will need to drain the tank. This has been a real problem with the price of gas going up. Some stations in my area have been shut down for putting water in the gas. If it was running fine before you got gas, then more than likely this is your problem.

Rtae this as a Fixya if this solves your problem. Ask more questions if you need to.

It sounds like you have some **** in the gas tank that is being drawn to the pickup blocking it.
Have seen this and because it seems so random, it can drive ya nuts.

You might carry a coffee can with you and pull the line from the fuel rail when this happens stick it in the can and just have someone turn the key on for a few seconds.
Beware though, it comes out with force.

Also possible is a failed fuel pressure regulator.
Those aren't expensive and . . . well, not very good either.

SOURCE: fuel problem

the bike will start but not run for long especially if I roll the throttle a bit. When turning the key and flipping the kill switch to on I can hear the fuel pump. I removed the fuel pump assembly and checked for holes or cracks in the lines and none are present. Does anyone know if the fuel/air separator can go bad? I have tried putting an extra quick disconnect to an extra fuel line to see if I can get any fuel out put and I get nothing. Do fuel pumps get clogged? Any words of wisdom would be great before I run out and buy an new fuel pump.Try running the bike with the gascap open and see to rule out that the air supply is clogged.,,,

SOURCE: 2007 street bob stalling at when idling

If it does it only when the tank is stating to get low, you have a hole in the fuel line, which should be covered under warranty. listen to the tank when the level is low. If it sounds like water being sprayed in the tank, then more than likely that's your problem, The problem won't generally present itself when the tank is full, because the gas helps cover the hole in the line keeping the pressure higher than when it's low on fuel.

SOURCE: 86 Shadow VT500 suddenly losing power/bogging down

first thing to do is to check fuel level. you mentioned about 290 miles since you owned it but no fillups. did you get gas from same store? not unusual to pickup trash or water in fuel from conv. stores. with that out of the way, look at your plugs and see what they look like. black and sooty would be fuel fouled and very white or very light tan would be lean. if plugs and fuel are eliminated, it could be the result of a stator coil starting to go south. these will require special tools to diagnose.

Speedometer cut off then back on later


Check the magnetic end of the speedo sensor. This is the part that goes into the transmission. If the end is covered with metal filings, clean them off and reinstall the sensor. Ride the bike and check to see if this solves your problem.

change your plug wires, if that doesnt take care of it a coil would be next. if you have a crack it would obviously be a problem with water and then forcing it in with air. An old trick is to spray the coil with wd40 to disperse water-the wires too. But i dont know if you want to do that to a chrome road locomotive. If did you would know what it is for sure though.

If nothing, and I do mean nothing on your bike is working (you said "no juice") I'd suspect the main fuse or breaker has tripped. Look under the seat or behind one of the side covers for the fuse panel.

Battery will not keep a charge.


Get a 2 amp charger and charge the battery fo 3 hours or so. While the battery is charging,check the fuses and check the wiring harness connections between the flywheel and the battery.

Start the bike and rev it up. Use a DC voltmeter to check the battery voltage while running. The voltmeter should read 14+ volts. If not then there may be a problem with the stator.

Pleas rate this solution. Thanks!

Buning oil i think.


As long as it is between the upper and lower marks it should be fine, if there is no oil where you usually park the bike, then perhaps the Tech didn't allow for the oil filter to fill before calling it complete.

Cut out


did everything as usual letting the bike idle for 5 minutes while I got my gear on. Got to the end of the road stoped then as I opened the throtle to pull away it cuts out. Restart then as I get to the next junction does it again. Pull over a bit to give it some revs, all seems fine, nice idle etc, then does it again at the next junction as I try to pull away. After that no problems at all, went out for an hour or so didn't miss a beat, was out on it the day before to with no problems. Anyone else had any of this sort of weirdness on their 690?,check out the fluid in the clutch reservoir. I was loosing some oil from the slave cyl. and when there was a lack of oil exactly same thing was happening to me.,,,
