    I was riding my 2002 FLTCUI home yesterday and when I turned into my drive it quit running. I found that I stopped getting spark to the spark plugs. The bike was running fine up until that point. What would cause it to suddenly stop sparking. I tested the fuses that I thought went with the ingnition system and they tested fine. Should I check all fuses or what else should I be looking at. Wrong time to break down as it is just getting nice in Iowa.

    Please don't laugh because this was what happened to one of our members a while ago. Is it a right turn into your driveway? Did you bump the RUN switch to the OFF position when you reached for the right turn signal?

    I'm betting on the run/stop switch. Not that hard to hit right or left slow turn. Real easy to check too, however no wants to tell about it.

    Ok so it was a left turn into my drive. The engine did turn over. And here is the kicker. This morning it started right up. Figure that one out.

    My 01 Roadking did that a couple of times before the crank sensor went bad.

    I'm having the same problem as we speak...when the bike gets hot I cant start it..no spark..but when it cools down..starts right up. could this be because the coil is overheating,its practicly sitting on top of the valve cover?
