SOURCE: bike is stalling

Your going to have to determine if its an electrical problem or a fuel problem. Could be bad plugs a loose wire, misadjusted carb or contaminated fuel or a pluged fuel line. and actually a few other things including a bad piton ring. I would start with the cheap and easy stuff. Drain the fuel tank, clean the fuel filter......see if that helps

SOURCE: bike stalls out

hi,this might help,it sounds like you have a fuel supply problem,i would be checking the fuel filter and you will probably find that it is a part of your fuel tap assembly,the filter assembly actually goes up inside the tank,remove the tank and there should be two 10mm bolts holding the tap in,be carefull not to damage the o-ring when you remove and reinstall the tap,if the filter is clean you may have to have the float levels reset...hope this helps...cheers

SOURCE: '90 Harley fatboy keeps sputtering

The ignition wire shocking you is normal - the high tension in it will influence everything close to it even if the insulation is intact.
Something is wrong with the carburetor- the level of the fuel is too low in the bowl either because there is dirt on the fuel line from the tank all the way to the bowl or it's badly adjusted.
You will need first to remove the line coming in the carburetor and see how the fuel flows. If the fuel just trickles the blockage is either in the tank , at the sump filter, or at the main fuel filter You will have to take the tank out and wash it and then replace the fuel filter - don't forget to also wash the fuel line itself. If the fuel gushes out fast then the blockage is either in the filter of the carburetor or the float needle or the level in the bowl is bad. You will have to dismantle the carburetor , clean it completely, including all the jets, and adjust the level of the float in the bowl. All of this requires at least a basic experience in bike repair - if you have never touched a carburetor before either ask someone who has to help you or buy this manual and follow it to the letter.

check for the pinched vacuum line at the carb,, sportys are hard to locate because they are tucked in way behind , it ay have come disconnected, unless there is a load on the motor it will idle fine, add a little load and you get the feeling no fuel is getting through unless you rev it up

Chances are there is a water build up in the carb float bowls. The water comes from condensation in the gas tank. Try draining the carbs.

there is usually a screen in the fuel ****/valve that will catch any nasty goop that may have been in the tank. Also there might be a screen before or right after the fuel pump. you need to eyeball these to see if they are stopped up. good luck

Save our bonneville


sounds like the throttle cables need to be looked over .( he get everything back to where it was before the lubing?)as one may be out of sync with the other. the oil change has NOTHING to do with the sputtering and surging ,stall .it would only apply if the clutch was slipping and that would make the bike rev with the car oil.
