  • I need help please bike not starting after riding.

    I am having trouble with my 01 road star not restarting after riding. When letting bike set a little while like about hour or so after riding it it will crank over good but will not start, then after trying to start it if I wait about 15 min it will start like nothing happen. This has been going one for a few years and I can not find the cause. I have replace coils went with 42mm ,carb pump less and vented gas cap. I have checked the wiring and found nothing I have checked the pick up coil oms when it is acting up and it has 320 oms. I have tried 3 different ignition boxes stock and after market nothing seams to help.

    Thanks
    Dave

        more than likely gonna be the pick up coil. I don't know what the book shows as good resistance readings but it isn't an uncommon issue. Also check the connection for the pick up coil to make sure the pins in the connectors are not burnt.

          I am going to replace the pick up coil and see what happens. I have been fighting this problem for too long so I hope this fixes it.
          Thank you for the help.

            This used to happen with my Vstar 1100. Take a long ride and stop for gas and it would not start until it cooled down for 15 - 20 minutes. Never did solve why just had to live with it or take shorter trips.

              Had to change a pickup coil in my vstar 650 not a horrible job but have to put on jackstands and remove kickstand to access cover and fish wire across to other side. But fixed it fine.
