    When it died did the lights go out or did the bike just stop running?

    Hello noride,
    I would like to help you with this problem-

    I need to know if your bike has a Carb, or is it fuel injected.

    Also, if your bike has a Carb, is the petcock a Vacume operated type? You'll know if it is if it's square shaped at the back, and if it has a short tube (THAT SHOULD HAVE A Vacume HOSE CONNECTED TO IT) at the top. Check to make sure that the Vacume hose is connected. If the hose has disconnected, or is cracked/split, the bike will NOT get fuel, and will NOT start.

    Get back to me with that info please.

    You need three things to have your Harley running:
    1-COMPRESSION (a minimum of 90psi)
    2-SPARK, at the RIGHT TIME,
    3-FUEL that actually gets into the cylinders.

    Keeping the above in mind,
    -Charge up you battery,
    -Check for Spark at the spark plugs.

    Also, when using your electric starter, if your engine does not start within 5 seconds of your starter motor turning over the engine, release the starter button. Wait at least 5 seconds before attempting to start it again. It's easy to overheat and damage your starter motor if your not careful.
    -Marko

Make sure your kill switch is off, check battery voltage across terminals, should be 12.6 volts. Check for loose connections at battery, starter and at frame ground.

2004 Wide Glide electrical issue's


You might have a bad sensor, The bank angle sensor turns off the ignition system when it THINKS the bike is leaning over 55 degrees. . The sensor is located behind the electrical panel and can be checked with a magnet. Electrical probelms can be a *****. Start by checking your charging system. Put a voltmeter on your battery. It should read about 12.5. Turn the engine on and the reading should increase to about 13.5. If it decreases, its the regulator or stator.
I had a bad crank position sensor on my wideglide that took me hours to run down. Good luck. Let me know what you find

The bike will not start


Just a couple questions, then I'll see if I can point you in the right direction. Did you purchase from the dealer or individual? What exactly is it doing when you hit the switch?

If I don't get back to you tonight, I will tomorrow morning. It's a beautiful evening here in Missouri The hurricane has pushed some real nice 70 degree weather up here, and it beats the hell out of the 100 degree heat we've been having. So, I'm gonna ride.

2006 HARLEY SPORTSTER 1200 LOW


If you're talking about dieing at an idle, you can increase the idle slightly to keep this from happening. Do not increase it too much, Harley's are not designed for high idle.

FXRS CONV -INSTALL TRIPLE TREES TO MAKE A WIDE GLIDE FRONT END


As long as the triple clamp stem is the same diameter, the triples can be changed out. As far as why, you're guess is as good as mine. Mine is that some people may like the narrow or mid glide front end, and an 883 just wouldn't look right as a wide glide.

Depends on if its a wide glide or an FXD. On a wide glide all u need to do is remove the front brake and fender, the slider tube caps and spacers. Then the seals -
