Morning, I have a 2004 dyna low rider natural asperated carb. When I started it this morning the engine died during warm up. Fuel was on, have full tank of gas choke was pulled out. When I went to restart it would bearly turn over. Seems like battery has power, head light appears brite. Check engine light and red light on dash are on. Would the engine die if battery cable vibrated loose? I had to get to work so wasn't able to pull seat off to check.****!Thanks for any help, Ken

I'd take the battery out and take it to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test the battery. This will tell if you are having a intermittant short in your battery. If the battery is over two years old, this is a good possiblility.

I'm not sure about the late models but the earlier models would not run if a battery cable came loose.

Good luck

When i start in the morning my 320d bmw litlbit smoke and engine shaking.after 5-10 minit when wom up then ok evre thing,please can let me know what is the problem???thank you.


perhaps some water condensation in the empty tank that then caused the smoke and shaking during warming up.

Refill with good branded Diesel a full tank and have a drive for 30 mins possibly warming at high revs (or low gear to warm faster)
Enjoy

make sure spark plugs and wires been replaced.replace distributor cap and rotor.replace fuel filter in the carburetor in let nut to fuel line.also check carburetor automatic choke plate make it closed during start up and open as engine warm up.but the choke need to closed when you first start engine up in the morning. i had same car years back you had to pump accelerator pedal twice then start engine. had be careful easy flood out carb engines.

My Dyna Lowrider 2005 will not idle after warm up. Runs fine on choke.


The pilot jet in your carb is stopped up causing no idle unless choke is on,clean the carb jets and your problem should go away,a clogged pilot/idle jet will cuase a lean condition,and when you use the choke it will draw just fuel and no air,hope that helps.

Won't start after sitting for a year, new battery


Your carb needs going through. The gasoline in the float bowl had evaporated leaving the thick additves to clog up your jets. The carb must be disassembled and soaked in carb cleaner overnight and reassembled. If it fuel injected, you've got bigger problems as the injectors are the same way.

Good Luck

Where is FXDL dyna low rider gas filter located ?


It doesn't have a filter, it does have a screen and it's located in the fuel tank. If your bike is carb equipped and has a petcock, take the petcock out and the screen comes with it.

If your bike is fuel injected, you have to take the pump out of the tank.

Good luck

2003 HD Low Rider. Went to crank and gas+oil


sounds like stuck needle valve if it's carbureted,letting the gas run into the engine filling it up,has to go somewhere if its full,you need to drain it out,don't try to start it,with all that gas in the oil it will not get proper lubrication resulting in engine damage.Shut off the fuel valve or it will continue to run into the engine.Hope this helps
