20 Most Recent 2001 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider Questions & Answers


Hi, Anonymous before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

Hi, Sean if your charging system is ok then you need a new battery you will need a multimeter for this procedure also in order to check out any main electrical system, you have to start with a fully charged battery 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, your battery may show 12.5 volts or more during an initial cursory test but in reality has little or zero amps and must be replaced. AGM batteries are prime for this type of deception. All voltage readings will be on the DC scale except for Stator Output which will be AC
"WARNING" never plug or unplug any electrical connector in the charging system with the engine running !!!
1. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
2. Check the voltage drop at the battery when you hit the starter button, anything below 9 volts you might have a faulty battery.
3. Check voltage at the battery with the bike running between 2000-3600 RPM, depending on system specs, your readings should be 14.3 to 14.7 volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you might have a faulty voltage regulator.
4. Make sure voltage regulator is "GROUNDED" and functioning properly, there is a YouTube video link below showing you how to test a voltage regulator.
5. Unplug the connector to the alternator and hook your multimeter leads to the alternator (pin/socket selection does not matter) set the multimeter to AC volts, at an idle the multimeter should read 16 to 20 volts AC. at 2,000 RPM 32 to 40 AC volts, 3,000 RPM 48 to 60 AC volts. If you are not getting these numbers, you may have a faulty alternator rotor.
6. Set the multimeter to OHM'S, connect one lead to the alternator (any pin/socket) and the other to a ground, the multimeter should read infinity. Connect both leads to the alternator multimeter should read 0.1 to 0.2 OHM'S. If you are not getting these numbers, you have a bad stator.
7. Check all wiring in the charging circuit for worn or chaffed spots and all wiring connectors in the circuit for corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets, which is the # 1 offender.

Maybe it is (sort of) running out of gas. Check no blockages to fuel tank breather that causes a vacuum in the tank and holds back the fuel flow, check the fuel filter, look for kinked lines etc. Fuel can be getting through, but just enough to idle or run slowly. Put the engine under load by riding faster and consequently increase the amount of fuel needed to run the engine faster and the "fuel starvation" effect is highlighted.
There are other possible causes of course, but the above checks don't cost anything.

Hi Tucsonjohn, on a Dyna all fuses, circuit breakers, relays, and modules will be behind the left side panel cover secured by grommets, four nuts or screws. On later models the electrical panel bracket cover secured by four nuts or screws must also be removed to gain access to electrical components. Good luck and have nice day.

Hi Anonymous, for big twin engines solid pushrods come in different lengths, depending on the manufacturer all four could be different lengths or only three will be different and two will be the same. Push rods that are the exactly the same length go into the intake slots. Sportster push rods will come in two different lengths the short ones go into the intake slots and the long ones go into the exhaust slots. For Big Twins that have four different lengths the order from shortest to longest is as follows: Rear Intake, Front Intake, Rear exhaust, Front Exhaust. Some OEM push rods will have colored bands that can be mismarked or the bands could partially or fully wear off, thats why I only go by length. Good luck and have nice day.

Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Wheels and or tires unbalanced, worn or damaged.
2. Eng ine/ transmission/vehicle not aligned properly.
3. Primary chain badly worn or links tight as a result of insufficient lubrication or misalignment.
4. Engine to transmission mounting bolts loose.
5. Upper engine mounting bracket loose.
6. Ignition timing incorrect/poorly tuned engine
7. Internal engine problem.
8. Broken frame
Good luck

Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short.
