Hi, Mgoddard713 and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 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 batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check 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 if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

sounds like the throttle cables need to be looked over .( he get everything back to where it was before the lubing?)as one may be out of sync with the other. the oil change has NOTHING to do with the sputtering and surging ,stall .it would only apply if the clutch was slipping and that would make the bike rev with the car oil.

SOURCE: Misfire and backfire at low rpm, runs rough at low rpm

You did not say whether or not this was a carburater engine but from the sound of it one of your jets may be sticking, a good cleaning of the jets will most likely fix the problem, the likely cause is a small build up or piece of debris on the jet.

SOURCE: loss of power, stalling, backfiring

Sounds like you are not getting fire to that cylinder,check plug wire,plug,and the cap on the end of the plug wire.

If all is well with those,just let me know and we can go to the next possible cause.

SOURCE: carb problems

if & when you do get it running again, does the bike have a petcock at the gas tank? if it does, when the bike is running before you are about to park it for 2 weeks, turn the petcock off and let the bike die on its own (from fuel starvation). this will ensure there is (almost) no gas in the carb to cause any gumming. you can drain the little bit that is left with the carb bowl drain screw. then when you're ready to ride again, simply turn the petcock on, wait a few seconds for the carb bowl to fill, then hit the start button.

Yes tht could be the carburator since the dirt / fine rust tht settles at the bottom of the tank has found its way in to the carb.
Clean the carbs. and replace the in-line filter.
Water in gas could also be it, since water floats and you had reached the gas to reserve the water may have found its way to the carbs and thus the rough running and back firing .

Just purchased bike from owner who had the bike stationary for a while. While riding it sputters and jerks. Once I open throttle it moves. it only has 9900 klm and it is in fantastic condition.


Hi The dealership are right but there are ways of dealing with the problem that don't require loads of cash. I had a similar problem with a Suzuki SV some years ago. i researched the problem on the web and spoke to a few bike performance places fuel goes off and causes all manner of problems with fuel injection and carbs.

I cured my problem by get a couple of bottles of injector and carb cleaner for petrol.engines you simply pour it into the tank and ride. I used Comma Petrol Magic (about £6 here in the UK) filled to nearly full tank poured the contents of 1 bottle into the tank and rode around after a few miles and a few small backfires I found the bike was performing much better and idle was nearly normal. I use this product every couple of months (normally ½ a bottle to a full tank) bike rides great. Hope this helps.

Possible Intake boots leaking causing a mistfire and running lean. Make sure you run the harley plugs. Is there a power commander on it ? If you do they are known to go bad and mess up runablilty.
This may be a long shot but since you have the magnelli marelli fuel injection system , you might need a hot/cold idle adjustments and clean out the inside of the throttle body.

Will not stay running without enricher on


The carburetors need to be cleaned most likely clogged jets and passage ways.the low speed jet is what you want to pay close attention to make sure the are clean.
If you are going to do it yourself pay close attention do not mix up the carburetor parts always lay out the parts from each carb in the from left to right 1234 separation.
I suggest you get the service manual fir this bike before you attempt doing the work yourself.
