No power to the wheels

I own a H.D. fatboy 2003. During a normal ride shiftingfrom 1st to 2nd, a loud clang occurred. Engine raced up. I thought I had missedthe shift up on the gears. I then shifted on up into third, let out the clutchno power to the wheels, the engine just revved up. So I downshifted, again nothing.Finally came to a stop. Shut off the bike. When I tried to start it, thestarter just spun. Nothing would engage. Sure would like to know your thoughtson this one.,,,thx...Mike

Ok bro' couple of things going on here. we'll start with the starter haha! how does it start you ask? the starter button hots up the sarter motor with the 12 volts dc which engages the starter gear wit the CLUTCH BASKET which has a ring gear in it and of course the starter is spinning and it spins the clutch basket and pulls on th primary chain if your fatpunk I mean fat boy is stock and pulls on the motor sprocket and turns the motor. If no motor power to the wheels and no starter power to the motor then something in between is broke. so I think the clang you heard was the demise of your primary chain or the clutch basket or the engine sprocket I think the primary chain is most likeley. so take it easy off the line until you hop it up proper son it ain't no hot rod til you drop some mods on it

Flashers stay on when riding but work at tickover.


your battery will be charged at a lower rate as the revs rise, you will need the final output rate to get an idea of what value the resister you will need to change it to, as a rule your indicator relay should be rate at 21w+ 21w now if your indicaters are flashing at higher flash rate then you will need to increase the resister rate and the opposite to make it speed up. what values you need will depend on what resister you already have , match it on a chart and then replace with next value until you get thew right flsh rate. as votage increases resistence increases.

Engine is poping (backfiring) when I let up throttle.


Most common cause of backfiring would be a vacuum leak....most common areas that develope leaks would be the manifold seals. I'd check there. To troubleshoot...warm up your engine and with it idling...spray some starter fluid on it and see if the engine speeds up. If it does... theres u're problem. While u're lookin around, check all your hoses for good connections and good rubber. If that doesnt do it...check your pipes for tight connection
