Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

Now that I understand your terms my theory is out the window. I was thinking that the starter had been removed at some point and not installed correctly, allowing the starter to spin but not turn the engine over some of the time. I think I would be looking at those plugs, I have had plugs that would...

Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

Can you be more specific with your term crank and turn over. To me crank and turn over are the same thing meaning the engine is cranking over or turning over moving the pistons.

Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

I am with Oldxz11 rider on this, I have had batteries that would crank the bike on the starter but would not fire the plugs. As soon as I charger the battery the bike would fire and ride. As for stalling out that also could be battery related ie not enough power to keep it going at idle

Re: the loss of a family pet

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

I didn't see his set up but he told me he put the chock where he wanted it. Then rode the bike (Harley not a full dresser) into the chock and then strapped the whole set up down. He said the chock never moved. Myself I would tie the chock down. Hope this helps :D

Re: Alternator

If the draw from new lights isn't that much I would bet just coincidence. Had a pick once that I put a set of aircraft landing lights on and they would trip the breaker in the alternator and after switching the lights off the alternator would reset.

Coming down I use the 1st gear engine off with slight front brake method as mentioned. While traveling I camped next to a guy who did exactly what I ha...

Re: RV Toy Hauler Info

First trip with the bike in the toy hauler. I didn't want to drill holes so I mounted the chock to a 4 ft piece of 3/4 inch plywood, which I mounted D rings on. Loaded the bike then strapped everything down using a criss cross pattern for the plywood. Tied the bike to the factory D rings from the fr...

Re: reasonable time to leave a Goldwing on its side

Find another shop, Mounting tires is no biggie if they have the tools. The guy I use has a tire machine and he mounts them in a couple of minutes.

Re: Cruise Control, Do You Use It On The Highway?

I use it all the time. As soon as I hit the highway it goes on. Kick it off by simply taping a brake or clutch slow down to go through a speed zone then back to resume and the preset speed. Not having to constantly monitor the speedo is great. I ride quite often guys who don't use the cruise. No pro...

Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

I am with Mike B, track down the other end of that elusive wire and make sure is is good. If that don't fix it then I believe the alternator is defective

Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

With he engine running use a multi meter set to DV volts and measure the output right at the alternator stud. AS for the elusive wire use the multi meter set to continuity connect one lead to the end of the wire you can get at and take the other lead and probe the connectors and other wires until yo...

Re: gets warm sputters out, wont restart

I think I would load test that battery, It may have volts but no amps. Then I would use a multi meter to check and see what the alternator is putting out buy checking right at the alternator. Then I would use the multi meter to do a continuity test and start probing connectors to track down the ends...
