QuestionI have a 1999 Dyna Wideglide with only 36,000 miles on it. I only ride it a couple times a year because I ride my Ultra Classic most of the time. I’ve never had a problem with it until now it wont stay running unless I hold the choke out on the Harley carburetor. If I rev the engine, it runs but runs bad like it has a miss and pops and flames shoot out the pipes. If I let off the gas, it dies. It runs smooth when I’m holding the choke out. What do you think is causing my problem?

Via Email

Answer You need to clean/rebuild your Harley carburetor and replace intake seals. Your intermediate jet (slow jet) is blocked. Also, make sure you are using fresh fuel and spark plugs.

QuestionMy 1998 Flhtci Harley fuel pump whines at start up. Do I need to replace it? Bike also shuts down after 10 min. I wait 4 min start back up and runs all day.

Via Phone from Bill

Answer Sounds like a failing Harley fuel pump. If it is the original pump, it is probably overdue to be changed. Have the motorcycle’s fuel pressure tested to know for sure.

QuestionSomething is dragging my battery down. How do I tell if it’s Harley voltage regulator or starter?

Via Email

Answer If you are losing voltage while your bike sits, you can test your voltage regulator for bleed bye. Your voltage regulator is only supposed to allow voltage to travel in one direction. From the stator to the battery. If voltage is leaking through the regulator, toward the stator while the system is at rest; your battery will “leak” voltage. It is easy to test for this condition. Simply clip your test light onto the negative terminal of your battery. Unplug your regulator. Touch the test light to each of the regulator terminals, one at a time. If the test light illuminates, the regulator is no good. Battery voltage is not supposed to be present on this side of the regulator. You should also test your charging system.

QuestionWell maybe someone can help me. I have a 2015 ROADGLIDE SPECIAL. The dealer installed S&S power tune duals, V&H VO2 AF from my 2012 RGC. Also have V&H FP3 tuner also installed by dealer. Since I picked up bike I have been having a few issues. First idle is rough occasionally. Other issue is that when running down interstate, when RPM is in the range between 2500-3500, which is the cruising range of 70-75 mph. Seems that the engine is lacking fuel or something. As soon as I get above 3500 rpm, the bike takes off and runs well. Talked with VH and they sent me another tuner and it still does it. The tech that installed the tuner on my Harley said he noticed it also but said it would work itself out. Well 2500 miles later and several different tunes it’s still there. Would like the bike corrected. Any suggestions? The tuner is now married to the bike and I can’t afford to go with another tuner. Several of my friends have the same tuner and have had no issues. Please help.

Answer You did not mention: Did anything change as you experimented with different maps? Anything noticeably better, or worse?
We would suggest making an appointment to get your bike up on a Dyno. The graph you read will show you exactly what is happening in that RPM range. When you determine what the m/c needs (more, or less fuel) in the specific RPM range; it may be a good idea to contact V&H again. Ask them if they can send you a few more, different maps to try. V&H are really good about working with such issues. Even better if you contact someone from tech support before hand. See if you can have someone on the hook that you can call while the m/c is still hot, on the Dyno.

Slaughter & Vixen with Steelheart

Slaughter LVBF 2015

In 1990 Slaughter hit radio, MTV and the U.S. touring circuit like a tornado- coming seemingly out of nowhere to roll through everything in its path and turn it upside down. Touring the world with bands that they loved, Kiss, Ozzy, and others meant the good times were just a song away, and their first hit single “Up All Night” certainly fit into that mold. Their second chart-topper, “Fly To The Angels” was more representative of the spirituality and awareness that goes into most of the band’s music and lyrics. But never were Slaughter more accurately represented that live onstage in front of their legions of devoted fans over the last ten years.

Vixen LVBF 2015

Vixen quickly built their reputation playing the infamous Sunset Strip and signed a major label deal with EMI. Vixen’s first hit single, “Edge of a Broken Heart” blasted onto the Billboard charts fueled by heavy video rotation on MTV. Their self-titled freshmen LP garnered two more knee droppers with “Cryin” and “Love made Me” both charting on the Billboard hot 100 top 40. It was the group’s live performances opening for the Scorpions, Ozzy and Bon Jovi that established Vixen as a premiere rock act to be taken seriously.

Steelheart is a band fronted by Miljenko Matijevic. Mili’s powerful voice and multi-octave range has become the heart and soul of the band. Although they began as a Hair/Metal band in the early 90’s, Mili has recently reformed the band and turned it away from the glam scene. Steelheart’s new sound is modern and edgy while still retaining overtones of Miljenko Matijevic’s roots. Writing, producing, Matijevic has fused his past, present and the future together, creating an undeniable piece of art.

QuestionI have a 2004 Springer Softail fuel injected it runs fine at idle but when you get to about 1/4 throttle it cuts out and tries to die but if I twist past that it runs fine again. Anyone had this problem and if so what was it?

Via Email

Answer Check for trouble codes. If a sensor is failing, a stored code may help lead you in the right direction. Also, check for an intake leak. If intake seals have not been replaced in a while, it may be time to do so. If there have been any performance upgrades, it may be a tuning issue.

Hogger Follow-up: It has code p0108 MAP sensor I put a new one in still the same.

AnswerCheck for an intake leak. Try a new set of spark plugs. Make sure you have no condensation mixed in your fuel. If you have made any performance upgrades (air cleaner/exhaust), it may be a tuning issue.

QuestionI would think the air filter and pipes would probably require an Air/Fuel/Ratio increase. Does adding the cam upgrade, definitely need an increase of Air/Fuel/ratio more than just the air filter and pipes? 2002 FLSTCI Heritage From stock to : K&N air filter Hooker long shots (pipes) Bolt-in cam slight upgrade

Via Email

Answer Any change from a Harley stock cam to performance will warrant more fuel. When the overall lift and overlap of the valves change, the engine will run lean and need more fuel.

QuestionPicked a 1972 Shovelhead custom chopper. I have to add an odometer to get a title. It does not have a speedometer or any gauges other than an oil pressure gauge. Any advise on how to wire in the odometer?. Can send pictures if that will help.

Via Email

Answer You will need to add a speedo drive and cable from the front wheel to a speedometer. When you have the correct Harley speedo drive, you will need to re-space the front wheel accordingly.
