    Might be a bad ground connection to the rear. It is an easy test to run a wire from the fender to the negative battery post.

    Maybe check under rear fender for a wire that hit the tire. It is a pretty tight fit on my bike.

    Quite often the wiring harness is hit by the tire especially when riding 2 up.

    Seems to be a problem with Fatboys I have seen this several times, Have you had the rear wheel off recently?
