Sounds like you may have overheated the motor. I'm surprised the overload on the motor didn't trip first. With this overheating, the windings in the motor have basically shorted out to ground. This is why your breaker is tripping. Rewinding the motor is no longer the option these days. You can try going online to

Engine cranks but will not start checked the connections battery level resisntance in plug wires and coil but but the coil connector is not recieving a constant 12v shows 12v for a second then back to zero...

Pull the spark plug wires off and insert another set of good plugs in them. Do not remove the spark plugs that are in the engine now. You engine has a compression sensor and if it doesn't sense compression it will not have spark. Try to crank the engine will watching the plugs. If you do not see a spark, turn the switch off and listen closely for a slight "tick". I cannot remember what year Harley went to using fuses instead of circuit breakers but you could have a short somewhere tripping the circuit breaker to your ignition circuit. Listen again when you turn the switch back on. After a few seconds, you may hear the slight "ping" of the circuit breaker when it trips.

If that isn't the problem, I'd say that the compression sensor on your engine is bad or you don't have compression. Check the compression on your engine. Good Luck

Error code 61 on remote m#lc340cp

from your description it sounds like this only happened once .. if it happens over and over then there is a different solution ... if the system is shut off then back on right away it will sometimes trip the breaker . this happens often when you have a momentary power failure ... any time the unit is shut off you should wait for a minute before turning it back on .. that allows the internal pressure to drop so the compresser is not trying to start with a full load ..

Dryer tripped breaker--shotgun blast sound

You may have a wire burn off the element and fall down to the base frame and cause a direct short. Turn you breaker off, remove the front and inspect for such a scenario.
