- might check for power to coil when it shuts down with key in on pos. check coil for cracks.... it is just a place to start, might tell you which way to go from there By: vbritt on: 3-21-2012
- I DID"NT THINK A COIL CAUSE IT STARTS RITE AWAY. NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR COIL TO COOL DOWN? By: scootercool on: 3-21-2012
- if you have power to coil check coil resistance i would check nosecone if not check the electronic box behind it
change to and aftermarket all in 1 electronic unit such as comp u fire.

- oops my fuck up disreguard answer 2 will not work on twin cam.... i was just talking to someone about a 86 which is different motor By: vbritt on: 3-21-2012
- It sounds electrical and it sounds like a breaker. If it's not throwing any codes then the system views breaker problems as obvious and won't throw a code. Check your FM (Factory/Fucking Manual) for the breaker to the ign' system and replace it, see what that does. By: 47Knuckle-Dragger on: 3-21-2012
- Only one circuit breaker on that model, the main breaker. If that went, it would kill the whole bike, dash and all. You could have a crank position sensor that is going bad. Unfortunately, you would have to ride the bike until it died, unplug the sensor, and check that it is putting out AC voltage when the motor is cranking. (the crank sensor creates it's own voltage to tell the ignition module that the motor is spinning, in turn the module tells the plugs to fire). By: Guest on: 3-21-2012
- Had a bike do the same thing finally traced it down to the ignition coil. Bike would run for awhile then shut down then I had to wait. Then it would start right back up with no hesitation. By: Guest on: 3-22-2012
- well guys it was the crank sensor. 60 bucks later. ign module was a loaner from a brothers inventory so i did"nt have to buy one to try 1st. thanks evryone. By: scootercool on: 3-25-2012
- Had the same problem on my 90 dresser. It was the voltage reg. When it got hot it would open and shut down the bike even though the lights, etc. stayed on. HD had a recall on it. Might be the same problem for yours even though it's an 02. By: Guest on: 6-6-2012
- is the coil hot when it shuts down. if it is then the coil is bad , i had the same trouble on a old shovelhead By: Guest on: 6-7-2012
