Harley Ignition Going Bad

Q: I have a 2002 carb FLTR 95″ with a crane plug in Ignition. I had cam chain issues and replaced them with the up-grade. After all adjustments were made by spec. (HD scream’n eagle adjustable pushrods). I have a mis-fire at 5100 RPMs. Rev limiter is set at 6000. Are the valves floating or is the Harley ignition going bad? It ran up to the rev-limiter prior to the up-grade I also replaced the tappets with new scream’n eagle ones.

A: It would be a good idea to double check your pushrod adjustment. Upgrading your cam chain tensioners should not have an effect on anything associated with engine performance. Otherwise, yes, you may be experiencing an ignition problem if the misfire is always at the same RPM.

    I had taken the bike to a local mechanic for the cam chains. The mechanic had the cams 1 tooth off when he re-installed the cams. He fixed the problem and all is good

    I have a 97 Sportster, chopped etc.is there a trike conversion kit or at least training wwheelchair can be attached. I’m a disabled vet with a broken back, knee, & brain damage. I’m beginning to lose use of my left leg & need a little help at times, when I stop. That leg, may or may not work, but it’s getting worse. Thank you, gentleman or mamaladies.

    I noticed you had a Crane ignation. My 04 carb Heritage had one for about 3 weeks and started giving problems, left me on road side I-20. Tow bill was costly! Install thunderbolt plug wires and Iridum plugs, if it still breaks down look at valve springs, lifters, crane ignation! Swap it out for for original, One of these should be the problem! good Luck! The more perf. upgrades you install, the more maint. Required to keep it right. Fact of life!!!

    High perf components do not require additional maintainance if installed correctly. My Crane Hi-4 has been THE best addition to my Evo for the lasr 21 years and over 115,000 miles. Same with Wiseco 10.5-1 pistons and V&h ProPipe. Most will equal or far surpass any “genuine” H.D. replacement parts—IF installed correctly. This is from a certified H.D. Tech. ALWAYS pay CLOSE attention to the install on ANY parts, H.D. of aftermarket.

      Hi, Billy. You are supposed to install each head gasket over 2 o rings. If you do not, you are very likely to blow a head gasket. It may not happen right away. But the lifespan of the new gaskets will not be very long.
