Question about 2006 Harley Davidson XL 1200 C Sportster Custom

1 Answer

I have a 2006 XL1200C. After hitting the kill switch, the bike jugged and choked before the engine stopped. When I went to start it up again, I heard a click from a solenoid (I believe) and all of the power indicators went dead. After a long wait, the indicator lights returned but when I depress the start switch all dies again. The engine won't crank over at all. Replaced 30A and all 5 15A fuses with no difference. I can only find one relay at the fuse block and I know that's the starter relay. Haven't changed that but can't believe that it would kill the master power.

    check battery charge and make sure terminals are clean and tight.

    I put the tender on it overnight and the charge is 12V on battery terminals and no loss through positive or negative cables.

Check your ground cable first. I think I'd start at the battery. Remember.... Harleys vibrate alot! Main wiring would be my first thought. It's happened to me more than it really shoulda! Good luck

First noticed the idle was really high last night when I started it. It returned to normal pretty quick. Battery light was on fire a minute it went off, battery is only 4 months old. Today, riding home...


sounds like the charging system is not charging when the battery is low the starter will not disengage properly disconnect battery and charge it while battery is out with bike in a high gear 4th 5th push bike back and forth this should unengage starter once your battery is charged and back in bike if the starter engages and dis engages properly then you will need to test your stator output with a multi meter look on you tube for video to test stator good luck

Why did I was my 2005 Ultra Classic trike engine shut off while driving, start back up, went a few miles, before shutting off? Is that the kill switch malfunctioning?


Sounds like you may be low on oil. Bike runs until oil is pumped on top of engine, and not enough remains to coat the sensor. Engine shuts off, oil returns to reservoir, bike runs again....i guess that's why they call it a motor cycle....

I was backing up the bike in neutral when the bike came to a complete stop. i forced it loose and at the same time i heard a noise that sounded like a metal bang, ring. the bike started moving easily...


Hi Hugo, I'm sorry but I just loaned my listening ears to the lead technician at your local Harley Dealer so he could take your bike for a test ride and evaluate the noise. Good luck and have a nice day.

2003 gsxr will not start


does your bike have a kickstand switch...maybe hitting the speed bump caused the stand to move and killed the engine...also i think your bike has a tilt switch under the seat near the gas tank not real sure on the location but it just sounds to me like what would happen if you hit the kill switch...just throwing out some ideas let me know it it helped.

Bike wont idle without choke


you need to take your carb off give it as good cleaning. also check your intake gaskets where the manifold joins the jugs and the black rubber one where the carb joins the manifold. You def have air/fuel problem going on. also check your vscume hose to the carb but im thinking that is not it.

Bike wont kick over


do u have any spark at the spark plug. When the kill switch is faulty it won't give any spark try disconnecting. sometimes this kill switch grounds itself or the contacts stay closed. For it to have sparks contacts should be opened. This kill switch grounds the coil so the engine stops running

Tomos A35 start protocal


Okay, he it goes >
  • Start the bike with the lights off. The lights rob electricity from the starting system.
  • Kill switch off side stand up and gas valve on
  • Bike should be in neutral If the engine is cold, use the choke when starting. Twist the throttle about 1/8 of a turn while kicking the starter. Turn the choke off shortly after the engine starts and certainly before driving away.
  • Go to a Tomos dealer or any dealer, Yamaha, Honda, etc., and ask them to show you the general owner maintenance needed for your bike or any similar bike.
  • LEARN TO STOP. Sure, you can ride a bicycle and you have already ridden your Tomos, but you have not practiced for an accident. STOP! ! ! A car just pulled out in front of you! You do not have the time to think, " Now where are the brakes on this motorcycle? " Stopping needs to be a reflex. Go to an empty parking lot and practice emergency stops. Pretend a car or a child is suddenly in your path. STOP! Repeat this at faster and faster speeds for about one hour. Now when you need to stop you will do it automatically without even thinking... I just saved your life.
