Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Hi Eric_prior, you could have a faulty sending unit or guage, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly.

If you have the spark plugs out of the engine, you will not see a spark on them when you crank the engine over. The engine is equipped with a compression sensor. No compression, no spark. Try installing another set of spark plugs and the rotate the engine over with a set in the wires.
Not getting any fuel is a tough one. Since I don't know much about the fuel injected, computer controlled models, the first thing I could tell you to do is to check to see if your fuel pump is working. With your ear press to the fuel tank, turn the switch on after it's been sitting a while. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for just a few seconds. I don't know what to tell you to listen for though. Some pumps make a whirring type sound others a clicking type sound. If you know someone else that owns a fuel injected bike, try it on their bike and see if you can hear anything. That's the best I can do. Good Luck!

If it's brand new, I'd take it back to the dealer and let them fix it under warranty. It sounds like the rear fender subharness is not connected or shorted somehow. A subharness is a wiring harness loom that connects to the main harness and feeds and "outlying" area of the bike like the fenders or handlebars.

Voltage regulator is going/gone bad would be my first guess. Other possibilities include loose or corroded connection(s), sulfated battery, or failing stator (not likely).
Since electronic parts usually can't be returned, it might be worth it just to have a shop check it and give you an estimate. Even if you have to pay a diagnostic fee, if it's something as simple as a regulator, you can do the repair yourself and save some bucks.
