Hi, Stanley before diagnosing your blown fuse issue, check the bottom of your seat, if its metal and comes in close proximity to the positive battery post you need to take the necessary steps to ensure there is no contact (electrical tape, thick rubber insulation, hammer a dent in the seat bottom etc.) You are going to need a wiring diagram from your service manual, a test light, an ohmmeter and plenty of extra fuses.
If you turn on your ignition switch and immediately blow a fuse you have a hard/dead short and is usually easy to find. With a test light connected to the hot side of the blown fuse holder start stabbing the wire/s that leads away from the fuse holder and towards the ignition switch, you test light will illuminate validating the short. When the test light fails to illuminate you have passed the short and need to back up until the test light illuminates, then look in the immediate area for the short.
If you driving down the road for 30 minutes or 15 miles and blow a fuse you have soft/flying short and may take some time and patience to find.
If the main fuse/circuit breaker constantly blows/trips while riding you probably have a faulty battery terminal connection. 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. Any other fuses that constantly keep blowing while riding are usually caused by a loose or corroded ground wire in the circuit, which means you have to check, inspect, test each and everyone with an ohm meter set on a low ohm scale 100 ohms or less . Simply touch one lead to the ground source and the other lead to the battery negative terminal, a reading of zero indicates a clean solid ground. Any reading or infinity indicates a poor ground and needs to be repaired. Poor or weak grounds require excessive additional amperage to complete the circuit which in turn blows the small amperage fuse.

2004 Harley... | Answered on Jan 28, 2019


I am not familiar with this model and I don't want to insult your intelligence but are you sure that it has seperate oil for the gearbox from the engine? If it has then I assume you have checked for a sump plug and there isn't one. The absence of a plug would indicate that Harley Davidson probably don't think the oil needs to ever be changed. I have a GM car that has done 215,000 miles and I don't think the gearbox oil has ever been changed (No sump plug). However having said that your machine is a quality bike and you probably want to treat it to an oil change. It should have a level plug or a dipstick to check the level. Plug types require you to remove the plug and top up the oil until oil starts to leak out of the plug to get the right level. If you haven't got a sump / drain plug the only way you are going to drain the old oil is to use a vacuum pump and a hose in from either the filler hole or level plug hole. Vacuum pumps with a reservoir are a useful tool and can be found on eBay.

sounds like a problem with the ignition switch. Does anything get power when you turn the key on? Headlights? Did you change the bars before or after the problem started? Is the handlebar harness plugged in correctly?

2008 Harley... | Answered on Jan 28, 2019


By the way, to add to my response, remove your starter and have the starter solenoid tested, have the whole starter and solenoid tested. This is easily done with proper caution, a 12V battery and a pair of jumper cables. Serious do aa YouTube search or google how to test a starter! I've done it many times but had no choice. Safety is Key, don't do anything you don't fully understand or understand the repercussions often

Here's everything you need, I'll post the link that's easy to read https://www.hdforums.com/how-tos/a/harley-davidson-dyna-glide-fuse-box-diagram-414028
Be certain tonight use the exact same fuses including amp rating when changing one. Don't forget something caused this issue, usually aftermarket taillights not being sealed properly is a big culprit if this- not always but triple check all wiring!

Pay the mechanic at the dealer. I do not recommend removing the front fender as it protects you and the engine from flying road debris. When you don't have a front fender, the tire picks up sand and other small debris and pitches it forward where the particles lose velocity and end up spraying you in the eyes or face. This turns cool into fool in a hurry.

False Wilbur is an annoying state when you drop a gear and instead of slotting the right gear you hit a neutral. This is what exactly you feel when you encounter a False Neutral but in reality, this condition is not that simple. Getting into a neutral state while changing gear of your motorbike is not always "False Neutral", for example; having a gear pattern 1-N-2-3-4-5, while upshifting from 1st gear to 2nd gear if you experience the same condition and you hit the neutral, it is not False Neutral instead you've actually hit the "True Neutral". Let's take it to another level and try to understand what's actually going on in the transmission.
When we say we've experienced a False Neutral, we mean that a Neutral like condition is being experienced while shifting between two gears other than 1st and 2nd in case of above-mentioned gear pattern (1-N-2-3-4-5). In this kind of situation, the engine revs freely and no gear is been engaged so far, in fact, it's a kind of limbo between two gears and no gear has been cogged whatsoever.
Apparently, the False Neutral state does not pose any threat to the engine or the transmission but it is indeed a very frustrating and annoying condition. The False Neutral can be seen on both comparatively older and brand new motorcycles. As far experiencing False Neutral in old bikes is concerned, normally worn out gears and bent shift forks come out as the culprit. But the same can be seen on brand new motorcycles as well and hence this should not be misunderstood as any mechanical fault.
In comparatively newer machines and sometimes even on the brand new motorbikes, the False Neutral can also be seen. Generally, it is witnessed when you try to shift the gear while accelerating the bike you tend to hit the false neutral more, this could happen between any gears and while both up and downshifting. Encountering False Neutral in newer machines is generally caused due to slotting gears in hurry. It is seen that when correct pressure is not given on the gear shifter and one just tap the shifter while pulling the clutch, False Neutral hits.
To avoid false neutral one should preload the shifter before actually pulling the clutch and dropping the gear. This method is found effective by many riders across the world and is considered a remedy for the False Neutral state especially on new bikes. The preloading of the gear shifter helps the shift fork to engage the right gear and one can actually feel the meshing of gears happening.
While False Neutral does not seem fatal for the engine or transmission but the overall experience could lead to a disaster depending on the timing of the event. As the false neutral generally occurs at high acceleration, it is likely that one is doing the maneuver while overtaking any vehicle and hitting a false neutral at a crucial condition like this could be fatal.
Another thing that needs to be kept in mind is once you hit the false neutral, try to get it back in the slot by upshifting (e.g.; from 3rd to 4th or from 2nd to 3rd) and always avoid doing downshifting (e.g.; from 4th- 3rd or from 3rd to 2nd). This is very important and can be understood by assuming you are experiencing the false neutral while making a cornering maneuver. If you downshift to get out of the false neutral, there are full chances of the rear wheel lock and you will never want this to happen while you are at the corner of the road.

Hi, Jamie the answer to this question is way above my pay grade for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your problem.
