    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.

Check fuel level and petcock.getting fuel? next check for spark ground spark to cylinder fins and crank motor, no spark check cam postion sensor for voltage while cranking (if fuel injected check crank positoin sensor for voltage) if you get voltage replace coil

Why would my 1998dyna wide glide harley just shut down after riding a while,i turn it off for 15 minutes, fire it back up and it just dies out?

I have a Harley, They say that HD stands for Hundred Dollars, they are right. Change the coil and plugs, It uses a Wasted Spark system and the plugs don't last plus the coil won't produce high voltage when hot.
Mine is an XLCH1000

Why would my harley davidson 1998 dyna wide glide stop running after a short trip after being shut off for 20 minutes and restarted?

when it shuts down does it sputter first or is the shut down immediate without warning. sputtering is usually a condition of lack of fuel.any intake leak at the manifold especially at the head will cause "sneezing" out of the carb. Restart can be difficult and intermittent. A weak ignition module especially the adjustable kind can be unpredictable. a lot of the after markets are adjustable.A 1998 scooter tells me you have an Evo and being it's 16yrs old the likelihood of having a stock module is nil. check the plug where the module plugs to the ignition harness as well. Often times,because of it's age,these pins turn green or they either bend or they pull out just enough to break contact. I've also experience cracking of the wire insulation causing temporary short. shutting down the engine and difficult restarts.As with all jobs,check the simplest and obvious and don't start buying parts until you have checked all connections especially at the module where it meets the ignition harness.

Driving down highway bike died now wont start

Circuit breaker. Mine is under the seat, not sure where the wide glide model is. Does it re set and start after several minutes? if so it will be the breaker, a common issue with Harley nowdays. If it died altogether try unplugging the ecm and the plug it back in and double check all battery connections. can also be the key switch.
