    WHILE RIDING TODAY MAKING SEVERAL STOPS ON A POKER RUN, MY 04 FATBOY STARTED ACTING UP AGAIN. TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH ON , WAIT FOR THE LIGHTS TO GO OUT , HIT STARTER BUTTON EVERYTHING GOES DEAD. THEN TURN THE IGNITION SWITCH OFF AND BACK ON THE ENGINE STARTED BUT THE STARTER STAYED ENGAGED. HAD TO REMOVE THE STARTER RELAY TO DISENGAGE THE STARTER TO GET THE BIKE HOME. i GUESS THE ONLY WAY I'LL EVER FIND THE PROBLEM IS FOR SOMETHING TO BURN UP AND THEN i WILL KNOW WHERE THE PROBLEM IS. SINCE I'M KNEW TO THE HARLEY'S THIS IS A LITTLE DISCOURAGING. COULD THE START BE GETTING STUCK WHILE IT'S ENGAGED AND OVERHEATING THE STARTER RELAY CAUSING THIS PROBLEM. tHIS BIKE REALLLY DOEN'T LOOK GOOD IN THE SHOP IT NEEDS TO BE ON THE ROAD.:bigsmiley6:
