The hotter the bike. the harder to shift and nutral is hard to find


Change the oil used (viscosity) (this may also be a clutch problem) as when oil heats up it thins out but some oils tend to take a long time so have a word with your dealer as to another oil or it may be something is heating up inside the gear box (caused by something rubbing onto another part) although normally all metal parts need to bed in (depending on the mileage) the oil keeps things running as smooth as possible but you may have a slightly bent selector rod that is fine when cold but bends slightly when warm and a little more when hot and as this is a gradual thing you will notice the problem then you will notice as you ride the problem getting worse so this suggests something wrong. when you visit your dealer make a note of the day time etc for future reference or simply contact the manufacturer direct and use another dealer as some dealers fob you off hoping you will go away. if under warranty get it sorted out as the manufacturer can say "you did know of a fault but still went out on the bike) . warning.. if the gearbox seizes up it will throw you of the bike

Bike shuts off while riding


I would suggest the ignition switch is defective, examine the connecter to the switch for signs of overheating of the plastic connector shell and wire connectors inside the shell, if it shiows signs of heat then replace the connector and the switch. If the connector is ok then replace the switch itself. You may need to find the connector in a salavage yard or check with the delaer.

Oil light coming on and off after oil/filter change. Oil level is good


You have to manually reset the oil change tripmeter and the oil change indicator after changing the oil.

However the intermittent nature of the oil warning may also indicate that the oil sensor system is faulty.

My 2003 Electraglide seems really hot, thigh burning hot, riding back from Oregon yesterday in 90 degree weather. I could barely stand teh heat stopping at lights. The fuel had 10% ethanol in it. Woul


Hi Lorena, and the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil supply or oil not circulating.
2. Insufficient air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy carbon deposit in combustion chamber.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP and/or CMP sensors.
5. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
6. No oil cooler.
7. Normal engine oil tempurature 180-220 degrees.
Good luck and have nice day.

Had a simuliar problem, Bike would have a total shutdown a High Temps/Low Speeds/High RPMs. Everything would reset itself after appox 2 minutes. Everything would shutdown Electric and engine.
2 Harley dealers spent 75 hours diagnosing it, dealer could not reproduce it. Last repair was to replace battery cables. Seems to have fixed it. Have ridden 15oo miles since repair. Problem reacurred once last time I rode. Again complete shutdown bike restored after 2 minutes. Did not happen again the rest of the day over 200 miles

i think you have a battery fault inside the battery there are lots of plates all joined up if there is a broken joint on the battery turminal post inside your bikes battery all the power just disappears just like that,,,but a slight bump may remake the joint and all is powerd back on again,,,if you could get hold of another battery just to try it out??? or take out your battery and hook up a lamp to it then give the battery posts a wiggel and the battery a thumping if the lamp gos out you just found the problem

My 2002 r6 will shut off while riding? please help.


Start by checking your right hand switch (kill switch) and make sure that it works ok.
Put it in "run" position,start the engine and try to move it sideways without pressing it to "off" position.If necessary remove it and check inside for rust or moisture signs.

Abs light flashing alternatively when putting ignition on


There is a simple way to fix it as I've discovered. Start your bike, if lights are flashing ride for a mile or two applying the rear brake a few times. Stop the bike and place on centre stand. switch off motor then restart. Your flashing lights should have gone. Why the flashing happens is if you ride and use your rear brake rarely and then your bike sits for a day or two without use your rear brake assembly fully retracts, ie pads away from disc and ABS gizzmos inactive. The ABS sensor unit then reports extended non use pattern to the onboard 'brain' which activates the warning mode of flashing lights. This has worked for me several times over the last 5 years when its occured. Full ABS operations return. Tried it on a mates bike and it fixed same problem on his.
