Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

Electrical problem I went on a ride on my 1994 fatboy, shut it off to take a break, went to start it up and heard a "pop" sound then it wouldnt start. A friend had to push start me, and it was running rough and I lost all lights EXCEPT my parking lights (which got twice as bright)......I have a new battery installed also. Any help with this?

    Ok, thank you much! Another person too told me it might be the voltage regulator also . I was gonna check the fuses but the screws that keep the cover over them are stripped out and cant be removed w/o drilling them out......fun, fun. I appreciate your input and advice, Thanks again!

    front cylinder wont run .plugs-wires were replaced to check wire, not the problem .bike ran fine
    .as i was riding, the front cylinder lost power as if a plug
    fouled.motor is fresh-compression is fine.i looked for a short and
    thought i fixed it but no luck. no fuses are not blown or blowing.motor has a fuel
    injected. It has the stock cam and
    ignition. It just won't run on the front cylinder. I WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ANY HELP money is tight and this is
    my mode of transportation. Thanks for any help .

Sounds like a possible voltage regulator problem.check to ensure battery terminals are tight.make sure there are no shorts.also first check for a blown fuse.that more than likely is your problem!!! ROBERT-BIG RED ONE !!!

HD Fatboy Starting problems


It sounds like you have a short in your start button wires, this could be caused by having custom bars with internal wiring. The wires chafe, touch, and it bypass's the button altogether. I would check continuity at the connector on the 2 wires of your start button and see if it changes whether the switch is depressed or not. If you have continuity both ways, you have a short. You should not have continuity unless you depress the button. If all looks well, re-post.

2003 883 sportster wont start


What u are describing is typical of a faulty ignition system, but could also be a fuel problem. I check by removing the aircleaner and rotating the throttle. If u see a nice spray of fuel, thats probably not the problem. Check for a spark at the plugs. I can explain how if you need me to. If you cant see a good spark, U have an electrical problem. I had a crank position sensor go bad on me. Dont do what I did (replaced the battery, ignition, and regulator as part of my diagnosis procedure)

Electrical Problem with my fatboy


If you have the electric speedo, then it's one problem. There is a relay that all three of these go through in order to work. I'll bet you popped the relay. I don't know exactly where the relay is, but your local dealer can give you the location. If you have the manual speedo, the it's two probs. First, the cable to the speedo gear on the front hub has most likely pulled out a bit, and second, the same relay as before, only the speedo isn't routed through it.

No power to the wheels


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
