Check the ignition coil. If the coil is tired it will break down, causing rough running and loss of rpm and fuel economy. It's possible that, without consistent spark maintaining sufficient rpm's, the charging system will also struggle which in turn affects other systems. Coils have an average lifespan of about 10 years before they fail to operate properly.

Check fuel pressure. Sounds like a bad pump or plugged fuel filter.

SOURCE: After riding a short time the engine kicks out turns off. Shortly after, I am able to turn the engine back on with key. I have a HD, 2000 Heritage Softail Classic.

after it shuts off, are you able to turn the engine over as if trying to start it? does it just turn over and not fire? or will it turn over at all? if it does turn over after it shuts off, immediately pull the plugs and check for spark. and also see if the plugs are wet with fuel.

SOURCE: Daytona 955i (02) ran rough display went blank management light

When there is no charging system operational, the bike will run wih battery in total loss mode. When it gets to a certain point of discharge, the first indication is indeed as you saw, the intruments go blank. There is little power left at this point and need to get home asap! 

Either the R/R (rectifier/regulator) and/or the stator is bad - both are unfortunately quite common failures on these bikes. 

You can find a diagnosis guide that I personally authored at this site: 
http://www.triumphrat.net/speed-triple-forum/104504-charging-system-diagnostics-rectifier-regulator-upgrade.html

Follow those guidelines and you will be able to determine which or both is failed.
Also is a recommendation for a retrofit/upgrade to a better component if you do need to replace the R/R.

SOURCE: how to change oil for2007 heritage softail classic

The oil drain us usually a hose with a plug in it that is held by a clip on the frame. It us usually on the right hand side of the bike just behind and underneath the transmission side cover. Loosen the clamp and pull the plug out. The oil will run out of the tank. Replace plug and add new oil to the tank.

Rough idling 2000 carbureted heritage classic


It sounds as if you may have some partially contaminated fuel entering the carbs. About the only other thing I can imagine that would cause this is a very small vacuum leak at the point where the carbs mount. Carbs have even been known to shake loose at the air horn to main body gasket. Good luck!

,How do I check oil on a 2003 heritage classic?.


With the bike standing straight up, pull the dipstick. The oil level should be between the two lines. The lower line is "Full Cold" and the upper line is "Full Hot". Do not overfill.

2000 FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic: 2001 heritage is blowing oil through breather.why?...


All Harleys after the year 1992 will have some engine oil carry over visible in the air cleaner though there is a diffrence between excessive and normal although if you get on your bike and travel down the highway at a constant 80+ MPH you will find that you get more carry over to the air cleaner then you would normally riding at lower speeds and this is simply cause you are running the engine harder and therefore you will see more carry over at the air cleaner. Now to be sure, make sure your bike is sitting on level pavement and in the case of a Softtail model it should also be upright and level pull the dipstick from the oil tank and wipe it clean, reinsert fully into the oil tank and remove it again and look to see if your oil level is roughly halfway between the check marks on the dipstick. If so then yes your oil level is good. I would now remove the air cleaner cover and wash any excess oil out of it and if your running a stock air filter and you have had a oil carry over issue for awhile now, then replace the air filter, reinstall the air cleaner cover and go ride the bike for around 50 miles and by ride the bike I mean go ride it like in town and on the highway without being abusive to it or excessive speeds(70 mph). Then remove your air cleaner cover again after your test ride and look to see if you have any oil carry over in the air cleaner. if so let me know and we can go into further detail.
