Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Softail "Fatboy". The problem is overheating/starting. On several occasions after riding in high heat on several trips say in the 75 to 400 mile range the bike will not restart and clicks like it is the battery however it will push start. However after the engine cools down it will start normally. I have replaced the factory battery with an upgrade and recently replaced the relay switch.

This is going to be a problem with the starter. When a starter is getting a bit on the worn side, high temps will cause the electric motor not to engage creating the same clicking sound as if the battery was dead or had a bad contact.

What oil would i use for my 2000 softail duece


Hi Anonymous, depends on the average temperature you expect to be riding in untill your next oil change. Contact your local dealer for advice. HD makes several different grades of oil. If you elect to run HD 20w50 SYN 3, which I highly recomend, then it does not matter what temperature you are going to ride in. As an added bonus they call it SYN 3 because you can run 20w50 in your engine, transmission and primary and it comes in a single container to change all 3. No longer do have to purchase 3 different types of oil for your Harley. Great stuff

What the codes


You want delay fuse instead of fast-acting fuse. Look for delay on product description.
Since the motor has a high amp draw when first starting, then that means surge of heat traveling over wire.
Fuse trips when sensing heat.
Delay fuse will accept high heat for longer period of time before tripping.

You have 1 Hp 6K321 motor from WW Grainger. You can contact grainger.

I recommend that you use 12 gauge wire and 20 amp fuse. Over-sizing wire will save heat loss and prevent damage to motor, and heat damage fuse box.

If you use smaller 14 gauge wire and 15 amp fuse, the motor will heat the wire, especially if length of wire is longer than 100 feet from fuse.
The motor has thermal protection, so motor is not overheating.
The wire is overheating.

When I ride my 2000 fatboy my speedometer doesn't


Try inside the tach on the connector. But also remove your speed sensor on the transmission and clean it. They pick up metal chips from the trans and short out. Also, HD had a bunch of bad speedos around your year. They replaced them for free. Doubtful they will replace yours at this late date. You might end up buying a new speedo.

After riding a short time the engine kicks out turns off. Shortly after, I am able to turn the engine back on with key. I have a HD, 2000 Heritage Softail Classic.


after it shuts off, are you able to turn the engine over as if trying to start it? does it just turn over and not fire? or will it turn over at all? if it does turn over after it shuts off, immediately pull the plugs and check for spark. and also see if the plugs are wet with fuel.
