Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
My 1200 sporty ideals fine, my problem starts when i try to ride. I get her going through the gears and she just chocks out. About 4th gear it will just die, seems to be gasping for fuel. As long as i just sit on the road it's fine. I have checked all the fuel system and can't seem to find anything wrong.
After bike is warmed up does it rev up without dying , you may have a float valve sticking or improrer adjustment remove carb. and check height of float and that the valve moves freely and clean all passages (blow them out)

Could be a faulty coil or ignition mod. Your local service dep should be able to troubleshoot it.

Ignition module; several other posts like this; run it in the garage and use heat gun or hair dryer to heat up "cone" (if module in there) if it dies replace the module; there is a break in there that only show up when it warms up. if this isn't your problem clarify year model FI/carb etc; ign module is most common problem/cause

Sound like the float isn't set correctly. it runs out of gas in the upper registers. it could also be a bad petcock.
