Could also be a crank position sensor if a late model bike. make sure power is not sporatic.(depends upon model) the power flows from ign sw. through a fuse or cicuit breaker (circuit breaker could have intermitant contact) then to handle bar sw. which could have the same problem, then to the bank angle sensor which could have the same problem and finally to the ign module. hey, pyrhyc, what is a jet seat? (what a fighter pilot sits in?) a jet is just an orfice, which i agree could wear but if it does, a rich mix will not miss. it will usually cause sooty plus or black smoke from the exhaust. if too rich, the bike will bog out and/or quit running. a lean mix will cause a misfire. if you are talking about the mix needle, it does not seat in the carb, it only controls the amount out fuel that slips though the main jet until wot. screaming chicken is a good module but i would not buy them when aftermarket is much better. unless it is strickly race, big brother still has his fingers in it and limits the full potential of the bike. higher revs are ok but there are other mods that need to be done before going there. the number one hold back is hd hydraulics. they are good for a stock setup only. there are cheap ways around this and then there are expensive ways are this.

Without being able to hear the miss, I'm going to have to give you a couple of different solutions, and you'll have to figure out which it is.
1- is going to be a spark miss. Since you've done the plugs, wires, and coil, the only thing left is the ignition module. Check and clean the connections for the module, and check all wires for any bare spots, dry-rot, corrosion, breaks, or a loose ground. If you're getting a weak or sporadic spark, any of these could cause it, or the module could be going out. If you change out the ignition module, I recommend using the Screamin Eagle or an after market module with a hotter burn and higher rev limiter for better performance.
2- is going to be a fuel miss. It could be that the jets or the jet seats are worn, and that you're getting slightly more fuel than what it's set up for. It's generally the jets that get worn, and rejetting the carb will fix it. This eventually happens with all carb models.

I believe that it going to be one of these two, and it may be time for upgrades anyway. Upgrades are always cool. Anyway, let me know how this works out for you.

Low or no fire to points


did you change the plug wires to solid core wires hei uses a fiber core wire with almost no resistance and points need around 3-5ohms resistance, the coil needs to be for points also this should make it run right

Electrical problems and **** in the gas tank can cause misfires. It sounds more electrical in your case. But draining and flushing the gas tank is a cheap fix. Could also be a coil or spark plug problem. Check for a faulty, fouled or cracked plug, check for a good spark, check the coil for carbon tracking. Check the plug wire connections too and the wires.

Bike won't start


Start by narrowing it down to fire or fuel problem. Pull a sparkplug, ground it to the head, and crank the engine. If there is no spark, then test the plug wires, coil, then ignition module in order down the line until you find where the power stops. If you have spark, then check the petcock to carb for fuel. If there is no fuel from the petcock, then it will be the petcock filter or the petcock is bad. If you do have fuel to the carb, but no to the cylinders, then the carb may need to be cleaned and/or rebuilt. Try these and let me know.

try swapping out the wires. just grab two wires off the old lady's car and give it a spin, if all is well put her wires back and buy you a new set. could be the coil tunneling. ohm meter may or may not show up a problem. stock dual fire coil should run 3 to 5 ohms. on the primary. if you have a single fire set up with two coils you could have damaged the electronics if you have them and the power transistor that drives the coil is shot.

2002 harley fatboy will not start


Let me start by saying I've owned Harleys for twenty years and do all my own work, so don't let the computer expertise on my profile detour you from taking my advice. There are several things that can cause a no start, you'll need to narrow it down to either a fuel problem or a fire problem. Start by checking the spark. Take a plug out, ground it to the head, and crank the engine. If there's is no spark then you need to start tracing it back. Check the coil, ignition module, and voltage regulator connections and wires. Most of the time when you lose fire it's a loose or broken wire/connector, or the coil or ignition module has failed. The regulator can cause a loss of spark, but generally only causes the battery to go dead. Rare, but occasionally the magneto will go out. If you have a good spark, then check for fuel. Turn off the petcock and take the fuel line loose at the carb or injection end, then turn the petcock back on and see if you have fuel getting to the carb/injection system. If not, then you have a faulty petcock, or a plugged screen in the petcock. If you are getting fuel, then, if carbureted, take the carb off, clean it, and check the jets and other internal workings. If this is an injected model, I'm afraid you'll have to take it to a shop that has the diagnostic tools to read and calibrate the injection system. Wow, this is starting to get long winded. Try these and let me know, I have a wealth of knowledge available to me from guys I ride with.

I have a 1984 Harley Davidson FXRS. I have a single fire crane hi 4 ignition system. It ran flawlessly for a few years and now the bike missed a few time then quit entirely. Now have no spark and would...


There's no real way to check the coil, it either works or it doesn't. I've found that with my Harley's when I lose spark it's generally a bad wire or loose connection. If the wires/connections are good, then it's either the coil or the ignition module. I'd say with the newer Crane on it, that the problem is going to be with the coil. Check the voltage from the ignition module going into the coil. I'm not exact on the voltage, but as long as you have a good strong current getting to the coil, and low to nothing on the plug wire side, then the coil is bad.
