The volt reg could be getting over volts,the charging system may need to be tested to determine whats going out.The voltage output from the stator goes up with more rpms,when the voltage regulator gets too much it dumps it into the grounding side of your electrical system(somethimes the ground wire will get smoking hot)This dump of power could also kill the rest of the system.Make sure your carb is clean (remove trash from inside the jet and filter) just to be sure its not just dirty fuel system.

Harley davidson stator what does it do


The stator is part of the charging system. As the magnets spins around the coils of the stator, the magnetic field cuts through the coils and generates electricity. That electricity is sent through the rectifier and converted into DC and and regulates the voltage.

Hi Bennymullins, and the usual suspects are:
1. Plugs in bad condition, wrong type or number or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discarged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at "BOTH" ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. If your bike has a CKP sensor you must leave both plugs in
head and check for spark with a 3rd plug. Good luck and have nice day.Harley Davidson Wiring Diagrams and Schematics

It is a Harley, what did you expect? Just kidding, look for fuel flow issues, like filters. The key to this issue is exactly what the cut out is like....if it is sharp, perhaps with backfire, look at ignition components. Overheating is an issue.

if the cut out is smoother or anaylog in nature, look for fuel and filter issues.

I have a 1996 883 Harley Sportster with a S&S carb (E) . When ideling its ok , but as soon as you try to excelerate it cut right out . Could it be the excelerator pump ?


Suspect items are the float level, accelerator pump, acc. pump inlet and exit check valves, off idle circuit, and main jet circuit. Be certain that you have no intake leaks.

2005 sporster 1200 custom running like **** missing cuts off after warming , then will start up and run 5 minutes later?


Sounds like you're fouling your plugs with the enricher. If you leave your enricher on the entire time during the warmup, you may be fouling your plugs. The enricher is very rich so I usually leave the enricher on just long enough to get the engine to where I can keep it running with the throttle grip. Go light with the enricher.
