Bike quiets after running about a minute

I have a 1986 hd softail 1340 engine when I start the bike it runs for about a minute and stops. IF I try starting it right away it will not start . If I wait a while the bike starts and runs about a minute and quites. Could it be the coil ? or is it something else?

Hi,

I think you need to check the idling acceleration in your bike. As far as i know only when your idling speed is low you engines get shut after a short span of time. There will be a small srew near your engine with which you can adjus your idling. Check it out..

Harley problems


This sounds like a known HD problem involving the temperature sensor at the top of the engine. As it heats up the fuel management system FMS leans out the mixture. This is OK, but the HD FMS does not know when to stop. It will lean the mixture out until the bike does not run. But it could be a problem with the fuel pump suction hose.

When the engine stalls, is the fuel pump running like mad or not?

If the pump is running like the tank is empty, replace the fuel filter and the fuel pump suction hose.

If the pump is not running like mad, I'd go with the temperature sensor problem. Start with the easy stuff:
  1. Be sure the air flow over the engine is not blocked.
  2. Check the electrical connections at the sensor.
  3. Try the bike
At this point it starts involving money. You can consider having the dealer put the compute on it and see what they can find.

But if you are like me:
  1. Replace the top sensor. It is as much work to remove the old sensor and clean up the ground connection as it is to replace the sensor
  2. Try the bike.
  3. Replace the FMS. After market FMS that know when to stop leaning out the mixture are available at places like J&P Cycles.
  4. Try the bike.

If it is not fixed at this point you really need the computer analysis.

Why do both spark plugs keep fouling on my 1993 1340 evo


Could be running rich - many possible reasons for this, plugs may be too cold, may have too much oil in the engine, try running halfway between add and full, enrichener may not be completely OFF when warm, petcock may be leaking or you are running in PRI setting.....

1999 HD Softail standard was leaking oil from the side oil tank opening on the side of the bike, what could the cause be ?


Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

Honda shadow vt1100c 1986 idile to low after running awhile


There's an idle adjustment screw. The bike runs faster when cold because the fuel\air adjustment is richer on a cold engine. When the bike warms up, the fuel becomes more lean in mixture because the heat causes the fuel to expand, i.e., less molecules of fuel to the firing sequence of the piston. When the bike is warmed up, after say ten minutes, the heat causes a leaner mixture, so adjust the idle on a hot engine (about 1000 rpm more or less). The bike will idle faster when cold, then drop rpm's as the engine warms up. Good luck

I am looking for a service/repair manual for a 1991 Harley Davison Springer with preferrably an 1340 engine. Can also be a 1350, 1440, or 1450 engine.


If you find a factory service manual, it will be for an 80 cubic inch (1340 cc) engine only. In 1991, all Big Twins came equipped with the 80 c.i. Evolution engine. The Twin Cam 88 c.i. (1450cc) engine didn't come out until 1999 in most of the Big Twin bikes and 2000 in the Softail bikes. Try this site for your manual. http://www.diyrepairmanuals.com/products.asp?cat=14142

Good Luck

Rewired 1999 softail that has a ivo 1340 .Using the ultima eletronic wiring system 18-530. we have avoltage drop from 9 volts to 3 volts at the coil when the starter is engaged than a 30 a second wate for...


You may just have a bad battery. Put your meter across the battery and try to start the engine. If the voltage drops below 10 volts across the battery, it's bad.

The bike is not going to run with only 3 volts at the coil. I guess you know that by now. I would recheck my wiring to make sure I didn't have something wired incorrectly. If you find nothing, you'll have to get in touch with Ultima for more information. Now, I've used Ultima parts before and their "customer service" leaves a lot to be desired.

I wished I could help you further but not being there, it's impossible for me to troubleshoot it from here.

Good Luck

Mikuni 42mm running too rich, how do I adjust? Plugs are sooty. I lapped in valves and replaced rings on my 1988 1340 Harley Softail . Plugs were fine before this work was done. Bike runs fine but plugs...


Hi Fetteressoca, and the usual suspects are:
1. Plugs in bad condition or partially fouled.
2. Spark plug cables in bad condition or leaking.
3. Spark plug gap to close or to wide.
4. Faulty ignition coil, module and or sensor.
5. Battery nearly discarged.
6. Damaged wire or loose connections at battery terminals especially the ground cable at BOTH ends, ignition coil, or plug between ignition sensor and module.
7. Intermittent short circuit due to damaged wire insulation.
8. If your bike has a CKP sensor you must leave both plugs in
head and check for spark with a 3rd plug. Good luck.
