I have an '05 1200 custom that I bought new in 05. About six months after I got it , the engine started skipping real bad. The dealer changed the CPS and all was well for about 2 years. Now for the past few years it has an intermittent skip while riding. I can ride 1 mile and it will do or 100 miles and it may skip once or twice or not at all. The speed or rpms doen't seem to make a differance when it skips. It feels like if you were to turn the switch off for about a second or two then back on, then it will run fine until it does it again if it does it again. I changed the CPS again about a year ago because I had read somewhere that they had a bad batch of them around the time I bought it so I figured the one they replaced it with might have been bad too. But it still has the skip. Any ideas would be appreciated. :wall
Thanks in advance,
Re: Engine skipping
You may want to check the battery cables for tightness. Had a similar problem when I had my 07 sportster. Found the positive cable was loose and tightened it, no more problem.
Re: Engine skipping
Gator may have you covered. You might want to check all the plug in connections, I had one under the seat of my '94FLSTC that one of the pins (male) connectors had moved back and caused the same type of problem. After checking the connections don't forget the dialectric grease.
Re: Engine skipping
Be advised this only applies to the full serial data bikes, ie 04 and 05's
The IM (instrument module) is capable of displaying DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes).
Speedometer Self Diagnostics: The speedometer is capable of displaying and clearing speedometer, tachometer, TSM/TSSM and ICM/ECM Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC).
Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.
Push odometer reset button in & hold.
Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release odometer reset button. Background lighting sould illuminate, speedometer needle should sweep its full range and indicator lamps (battery, security, low fuel, check engine and cruise) should illuminate. The word “diag” should then appear.
Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.
Each letter represents an area of the diagnostics module. The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check. To move from one letter (module) to the next, you push the odometer reset button one time. (from P to S to SP to t and back to P, etc.)
P = ECM/ICM (Electronic Control Module (EFI) / (Ignition Control Module, 'Carbureted')
S = TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
SP = speedometer
T = tachometer
To get the DTC within an area of diagnostics, push and hold the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and release. If there are any DTC’s the code will be displayed or the word “none” will appear if there are no DTC’s. Push the odometer reset button again to view additional codes if they exist.
Record the codes.
If DTC’s are not to be cleared, Press and release the odometer reset button. Part number of module will be displayed.
NOTE: To determine if a code is current or historic, clear the displayed code by pushing in and holding the odometer reset button ( longer than 5 seconds) until 'clear' comes up. Release the odometer reset button. Turn OFF the ignition switch. Run
your bike and shut it down then recheck the DTC’s again by repeating steps 1 to 9. If the code is current it will reappear.
Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.
Turn Ignition switch to OFF.

AFR – Air Fuel Ratio
ATS – Air Temperature Sensor
BAS – Bank Angle Sensor
CCM – Cruise Control Module
CKP – Crank Position Sensor. The CKP generates an “AC signal” which is sent to the ECM where it is used to reference engine position (TDC) and speed.
DTC – Diagnostic Trouble Codes
ECM – Electronic Control Module. (The Computer) Computes the spark advance for proper ignition timing and fuel control based on sensor inputs (from CKP, MAP & TP sensors) and controls the low-voltage circuits for the ignition coils and injectors. The dwell time for the ignition coil is also calculated in the microprocessor and is dependent upon battery voltage. The programmed dwell feature gives adequate spark at all speeds.
ECT – Engine Coolant Temperature. Sensor also controls the cooling fan relay that provides 12 Vdc to the fans.
EFI – Electronic Fuel Injection
EFP – Electronic Fuel Pump
ET – Engine Temperature sensor
FI – Fuel Injectors
FPR – Fuel Pressure regulator
IAC – Idle Air Control actuator
IAT – Intake Air Temperature sensor
ISS – Ion Sensing System…detonation detection
MAP – manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. The MAP sensor monitors the intake manifold pressure (vacuum) and sends the information to the ECM. The EMC then adjusts the spark and fuel-timing advance curves for optimum performance.
TP – Throttle Position Sensor
TSM/TSSM (Turn Signal/ Turn Signal Security Module)
VE – Volume Efficiency
VSS – Vehicle Speed Sensor. Used as an input for idle speed control
Re: Engine skipping
Thanks guys. I check for a code. If I remember right, I did change the battery a few years back and I just put a new one in it about a year ago also. I now have a battery tender which I did not have before. I'll check all of the connections also.
