Re: 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.

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.
test or replace your ignition module,and you might find the actual prob by accident the connector for the module sometimes with age lose or only have intermittant contact.a can of electrical contact cleaner should take care of it but those symptoms scream ignition mod dont know why hd dealer couldnt find it but they dont put their best techs on older bikes
u have 2 take primary cover off the jack shaft has 2 b unbolted there is a hex head bolt at the end of jack shaft it has a lock washer with a tab so bolt locks bend it out of the way & remove bolt then starter will come out.
check your brain bro. I mean your bikes brain. Its right under your ****. hmm. anyhoo the connections get funky and those after market pipes you had to have make it vibrate and then the connections don't connect. quit throwing parts at it and look at what you got. throttle input equals erratic behaviour. vibrations shouldn't affect the components you changed but they will wreak havoc on the connections inbetween
Check your wiring for continuity. Mine did the same on the Fatboy - found a broken return wire by the right Handlebar switch when I opened up the switch gear housing on the bars. Bit of solder, heatshrink and good as new! (my problem light was on the right side so check the left side on your first - was a white wire with orange stripe I think, should be easily visible from the indicator switch inside). All the other lights worked fine. Maybe an earthing problem?
