Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
I need some trouble shooting ideas for a hard starting situation with
my 95" Twin Cam engine, big bore kit, geared cams, with 62k miles.
The bike used to start on the first try. Now (when the engine is cold), the engine has to turn a few times before it fires.
It's especially bad when the engine is hot. It seems to be compression related, because the starter gear jumps every once and awhile.
Could it be an exhaust leak causing this? If so, how would I prove there is a leak?
Highley doubtful on exaust leak causing problem first make sure your battery is up to the task do a load test if that looks good do a draw test on the starter if not there it starts to get ugly that motor came with a torrington bearing on the sprocketshaft as they wear they develop crankshaft runout not a real big issue till your running straight gears on the camshafts which only tolerates .001 runout you could be binding there
