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.

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.

All is dead.


I'm always hestitant to offer suggestions on the newer Harleys, my experience is all on 1999 and earlier carb bikes. But try the standard stuff first. No horn or lights leads me to check my connections and fuses starting with the ground for the battery. Torque em up a little and see if it helps

04 1200 Sportster - backfires - cuts out - fouls plugs


Turns out the crank sensor needed to be replaced again (second time in 8 weeks or so!). In the last week Harley has sent out a "improved" crank sensor that does not have the issues of the original. Therefore if you replace it once you shouldn't have to do it again and again. Bike runs great now. We will see - though - my local service manager promises it will stay that way.

The Battery and or Stator is bad. Just like on a car if you pull the negative cable off the battery while the car is running and it dies your alternator is bad.
