Question about Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide Motorcycles

1 Answer

Hello, I have a 94 Harley FXR. I went for a bike ride today and as I was riding I noticed a noise that would come and go coming from the front end. When I got home the engine died on me and now it wont start but it turns over. I pulled the plug and noticed that I am not getting a spark. Any Ideas what it could be? Thanks

Check for battery voltage going to the primary side of the coil when you have the switch turned on. If you don't have any voltage, you won't have any spark either. You may have to disconnect the small wires to check for the voltage.

You can test the coil using an ohm meter. Disconnect the small wires and put your meter's function switch in R X 1 position. Touch the meter leads to each of the primary coil winding posts. You should read between 2-3 ohms.

As for the noise from the front end, I don't have any idea. You may want to pull the headlamp and look inside the there. I think the FXR is like a Sportster in the fact that most of the wiring is in the headlight assembly.

Good Luck
Steve

Bike stalls after 45 minutes riding


HT coil, 99% certain, the one that's on the end of the plug lead. electrical stuff, particularly HT coils break down when warm. if it was a CDI unit it would likely go pop and that's the end of it. you can get the coil tested, or get a second hand cheap one or borrow one to see if that's it. I used to test them by putting them on a radiator to get really hot, faulty ones would give up real quick then.j
