    I was on my way to get gas (tank just about empty), I pulled in into the gas station and ride around all the pumps and as soon as I get to the pump the bike shuts off (not stalled). I had the radio on and it turned off for about 2 seconds then the radio turned back on. By then I had already turned the kill switch off. I did look into the tank and there was barely any gas, not enough to hear it. Gassed up and rode it for about a hundred miles with a couple of stops along the way and it did not do it again.
    Any insights?

    2007 Streetglide no engine mods basically stock.

    I would check for trouble codes and see if there are any stored.

    Here's how you check:

    The following procedure will instruct in retrieving and clearing ECM Diagnostic Trouble Codes and TSM/TSSM codes thru the Harley guage cluster as well as a list of codes.

    1- Turn Ignition switch to OFF & Run/Stop switch is to Run.

    2- Push odometer reset button in & hold.

    3- Turn ignition switch to Ignition and release the odometer reset button. Background lighting sould illuminate, sppedometer 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.

    4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPt" with the first P flashing.

    5 - 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/ Security Module)
    SP = speedometer
    T = tachometer

    6 - 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.

    7 - Record the codes.

    8 - 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.

    9 – Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module.

    10 – Turn Ignition switch to OFF.

    On models not equipped with a tachometer "No Rsp" will appear when the tachometer identifier is selected.

    "No Rsp" (no response) will also appear if the run/off switch is in the off position when doing this procedure.

    And here is the link for the 2007 trouble codes.

    Take care,

    Thanks Dave,
    Gonna give it a try.

    Thanks for the link, going to what Dave suggested, I did check the cables and the positive was not tight. I keep thinking from my carbureted days when you did not need electricity to keep your scooter going.
