Question about 2009 Harley Davidson FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide
When I turn on the ignition the bike starts right after the fuel injection pump is primed but the starter stays engaged, can you help me and point me in the right direction, thanks Francis
SOURCE: fuel pump?
the fuel pump for your 2000 fuel injected road king is located in the fuel tank. you will have to remove the speedometer housing, by first removing the seat, then remove the one small screw near the seat that holds the speedometer housing in place, also remove the small screw at the front of the speedometer housing and lift the housing off the tank and disconnect the wiring that goes to the back of the speedometer. there is a large oval shaped gold in appearance plate on top of the fuel tank. this plate is what the fuel pump is mounted to.

Not too hard - Undo the two bolts on the caliper and then seperate the caliper and pull the old ones out. Insert the new ones and put the bolts back in to hold the caliper back together and then install them back on the bike with the two retaining bolts. Use a bit of lock tight (Blue) on the threads. Warning do not let anyone apply pressure on the brakes while you have them off the bike or you will have a mess and/or a problem.

Does the start quit turning or does it continue to sound like it's turning? If the starter quits turning, I'd suspect the battery. Take it out and have it tested. Usually no charge for this service at most any auto parts house.
If the starter sounds like it's still turning but the engine isn't, that's an indication that the "starter clutch" is bad inside the starter. This is the "one way bearing" unit that turns the engine to start it but then freewheels when the engine starts. I've seen many of them go bad. If the bike is still under warranty, take it back to the dealer before the warranty runs out. At least have a documented complaint of the problem within the warranty period. That way, if the warranty runs out you may can still get it fixed under the warranty.

Testimonial: "Very informative and explained the possible issues in plain English very well. I will check your suggestions follow your advice. Thank You very much."
Sometimes there is adaquate pressure and we don't hear the pump, but it does pump while crank and running. A couple of things here, one is the fuel filter, etc. and battery. You did not say how many miles are on the bie, somethings like the fuel filter are usually replaced based on mileage; while depending whee you are 3 years on a battery is about all you can expect.
The reasons why the bike dies can be many, especially at low RPM or idle. Check your air filter, replace if needed. Change your plugs if they are questionable. Change your fuel filter if you have 40K miles on the bike. Unfortunately you could have a range of sensors that are "tired" or about to go bad if the problem persist. The easiest thing to do is take to your dealer if after changing plugs, fuel filter, and air cleaner doesn't help. The dealer will hace the specialty tools to test the sensors and other components that may be in question. Usually they can determine what needs to be done in less than an hour.
Hope this helps.
