Hi Joe, it could be as as simple as a proper clutch adjusment or a more serious problem in the transmission, shifter fork, shifter pawl, or shifter cam ect. Do yourself a huge favor and pick up the best tool you will ever buy, a service manual. It will trouble shoot the problem for you and walk you through repair and quick fixes if there are any. And it almost always pays for it's self the very first time you use it. Good luck

Hi Anonymous, if you are going to work on your bike the first and best tool you will ever buy is a service manual, it will pay for it's self usually the first time you use it. That being said here is a short list of could be's: (mechanical) no or low compression broken rings or hole in piston, bent or stuck valve. (fuel) shorted or clogged injector, and my personal favorite (electrical) bad spark plug, plug cable, ignition coil, electronic control module. But there is one thing you can do that might help point you in the right direction. Try to retrieve any trouble codes that might have been generated because of this issue. To help walk you through this procedure go to: http://www.fuelmotousa.com/p-29661-harley-trouble-codes.html
Good luck

Follow the shifter reach rod that runs from the shift lever back to a short lever on the transmission. Take the nut off and take the rod loose from this short lever. Then, move the forward like you are going to shift into low gear but don't actually shift the transmission into gear. Feel for the spring tension. Then, move the lever backwards and feel for the spring tension there. Check the shift lever and the reach rod for binding. If you don't feel the spring tension trying to return the lever back to the center, it's likely that the shifter pawl return spring is broken. This spring is what returns the shifter lever back to 'center". But,the temperature of the transmission will not change this. If the spring is broken, it's broken cold or hot. If the spring is good and there is not bind in the linkage, the problem may be in the shifter cam mechanism inside the transmission. Either way, this is an internal issue in the transmission.

Good Luck

I suggest you take the carbs apart clean the float bowl blow out the jets.

2006 Harley... | Answered on Apr 29, 2013


The primary case takes 36-44 ounces of oil. Stand the bike as straight up as you can safely get it. Remove the derby cover from the primary cover. Fill the primary case until the oil comes up to the lower edge of the outer clutch drum. That's the shiny aluminum ring on the outside of the clutch assembly. Do not overfill or the clutch will drag making finding neutral with the engine running next to impossible.

Good Luck

You did not say what year or model bike you have but if the brake light is stuck on, you probably have a bad front brake light switch. The switch is located in the right handlebar switch housing and protrudes out so that it is operated by the front brake lever. Make sure that the front brake master cylinder is adjusted down tight against the right handlebar switch housing.

Good Luck

I would use a test light. Just attach the light to the rev motor wire connector . I assume you use a button to activate the motor?

Squirt fuel in carb or tb throat. If it fires fuel problem. You can bypass the relay for fuel pump or check the output terminals if relay for power. I would bypass relay first. If it starts you either have a bad relay or missing signal to relay. Check for voltage to relay and signal voltage to relay. If both present then replace the relay.

Its possible that the ABS sensor is not reading the "trigger" mechanism on the wheel properly. If you changed from a 19 to a 23 inch wheel, the sensor will think that the wheel is turning too fast or too slow and cause the ABS sensor to flash. There is probably a different sensor plate or sensor for the larger wheel.
