    I just signed up and have a question. I have a ’95 Harley Ultra Classic 30th Anniv. Edition. Sometimes it starts and sometimes it doesn’t. When it doesn’t start – the electronic fuel pump can not be heard priming the system. I usually keep turning the ignition switch off and on repeatedly and eventually it starts. The Harley shop can’t find the problem. It always works when they get it – of course. I am worried about taking any long rides with my wife due ti this problem. Can you help me, Please?
