2009 Honda Shadow Aero ran fine yesterday, stopped for about 3 hours would not start last night. Turned over would not start, help?


sounds like a CDI issue!
could also be an ignition switch or run/stop switch issue.
is the bike lacking any power when running?
Maybe stator pick-up coil as well.
Have electrical components checked at the dealer.

Where is the gas gage on 1998 valkyrie


There is no gas gauge. You have to set your trip mileage on the speedometer to 0 each time you fill up the gas hog. I go 80 miles before I have to switch the tank to reserve leaving maybe 20 miles left before walking. Don't even think about pushing that bike to the gas station just leave it. You will need a good insurance policy to protect against theft if you leave it unattended.

Exhaust temperature light is on


it may be the catalytic converter is starting to block up?? age is a probable reason or another part or your
exhaust system(piping)is blocked or squashed as heat is building up to set off this sensor ..probable sensor is ok.Car probably has quite a few miles on it and if theyre really low ,lack of use can do the same thing,regular operating temps equal longevity..eg;cabs running all the time do huge miles

I have a 99 Mazda 626 that just quits running when you are driving down the road. Today it quit and I waited about 20 minutes and it started right up. Anyone know what could be causing this?


Try replacing the ignition switch underneath the steering collar. Pop of the top then the bottom you need a screw driver or ratchet cant remember. Its very easy to replace. I suggest buying a repair manual to see what it looks like. Very small part smaller then your hand. The part cost 100 or less with life time warranty. DO NOT BUY IT FROM THE MAZDA DEALER. They warranty their part for only 9 months? Or 30k miles.

If it starts to putter or not stay on and turn off like you describe it maybe the switch. When you install it first it may shudder or have a high rpm. I think it does this because the main computer is trying to adjust. You may have to turn it off 5 or six times or drive around the block a few times to get it to adjust. I have replaced mine twice already since I have hit 234,000k miles on it. It does burn out and my car at times will not start or turn and try to turn of while I’m driving and stop at a light with low rpms.

99 HD softail stalling problem


If this is occuring everytime you ride the bike and always when it gets warm. I would think there is a good chance that the sensor in the timing cover is getting hot and then developing a short. You can replicate this synario by taking a hair dryer and warming the cam cover around the timing plate, if the bike wont start after warming the timing cover then you have a bad ignition sensor plate. if the bike still starts you can also try the same technique with the ignition module itsself which should on that model be located behind the battery. heat causes shorts in those 2 items quite often. try it out and let me know what happened.
