Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHRCI Road King Classic
Bateery new,spark plugs new
engine cranks but will not start
I'm telling ya, since harley went to all this computerized stuff on the bikes, they're getting just like our cars got. It's getting to where you can 't work on them yourself anymore.
The ignition circuit has it's own fuse now. Since Harley went to fuses instead of circuit breakers, the slightest thing and you're down for the count. With circuit breakers, you could short something and a few seconds later, you were ready to go again. These days, you've got to find the fuses and check all of them. I don't know where your fuse box is located on the bike. The header says you have a 2000 Road King. If that's right, I think the fuse box is under the seat or the right side frame panel. That's what I'd check first.
Of course, you know that you've got a compression sensor on your engine. If you take the plugs out of the heads and put them in the wires, you won't get a spark. Take the wires off the spark plugs but leave the plugs in the heads. Put another set of plugs in the wires to check for spark.
If you'll contact me directly. I'll scan a troubleshooting chart and send it to you. It may or may not help. Seems Harley changes stuff as often as the Japs do now. Contact me directly at my personal e-mail wd4ity at bellsouth.net Remind me of what you need, ignition system troubleshooting chart.
