Has been running fine, and charging. dont know if still is. spit sputters died back fire. charged battery, ran fine for 3 miles and died again. did not start. got it home started after sitting. carb model. will run but afraid it will die again. looked at hoses, gas cap, going to start it and see how long it lasts, will keep u posted. thank u. broke rider. Sorry first forum. After it dies there is plenty of juice left in battery but wont fire up until it sits for a while.

    If following Jack's lead doesn't produce results, check the main circuit breaker and connections. Or just replace it; it is a $12 part.

    It is not uncommon for the ignition module on your year of sportster to cause that kind problem when it gets warm as jack said spray the ignition module cover with spray duster as air comes out of it really cold if bike then works ok for a wee bit then you know that you need a new ignition module
