    I have a 99 twin cam Dyna and it usuallyn runs great.
    Today, it started up normal, ran about a minute and stalled. Would not restart until I turned the bike off and back on again,,,, started right up and did again and again.
    I left it to go to work after the 3rd time.
    No codes were set.
    Thanks

    Possibly the crank position sensor by the oil filter.

    Might have a look at the wiring in the speedo housing. Its possible its a wire coming from the ignition switch that has jarred loose. I had a buddy that was having a similar problem on his old shovelhead... That fixed him up.

    Another thing i happened to think of that is reset by the key is the tilt sensor. We have had to bypass them before when they aren't acting right. I think they started putting those on some of the later 90's models, not sure if your bike is equipped with one or not.

    No offense meant, but it has plenty of gas, right?

    Secondly, is this engine EFI or carb equipped?

    TQ

    The bank angle sensor was the culprit.
