Question about Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide Motorcycles
It sounds like you've got either a fuel problem or an ignition problem. The fuel problem is probably the easiest to troubleshoot. Disconnect your fuel line and the carb and put it into a empty gas can. Turn on the petcock and observe the fuel running into the can. Watch it long enough for at least a quart of fuel to run into the can. If, after a short while, the fuel flow slows or stops, loosen your fuel cap. If the flow picks back up, replace the fuel cap. If not, drain the tank and pull the petcock and find out what the problem with that is.
If the fuel is alright, the ignition may be the problem. Has the engine recently started to make a strange whining noise that sounds like an alternator on a car whining? If so, you may have lost an inner camshaft bearing. About the only thing you can check with a meter on your ignition system is the coil. Disconnect the small wires from the coil and use an ohm meter to check the resistance of the primary side of the coil. It should be between 2 and 3 Ohms.
