streetglide help

I rode my 08 streetglide with 8k miles to the lone star rally this year instead of my sport bike. I was reving it but not that long like some of the other bikes then it turned off. The engine turns over but doesn't start. It seems like there is no spark to the spark plugs. Has anyone experienced this issue. Any advice is appreciated.

By revving it, do you mean redlining it while sitting still? Not trying to be smart but just trying to understand what exactly was happening while it broke.......

I might have redlined it a couple times while moving at 10-15 MPH. Not at stand still. I didn't get to see how far exactly. Not wide open throttle.

If you are not getting spark, then it could be the alarm system on it.

It doesn't have an alarm. Do you mean a factory built in system some sort?

Maybe you should go ride some wheelies on the 929 untill the other bike just starts working on its own.

Like Patrick already ask. Any DTC's (Diagnostic Trouble Codes)?

Here are the steps to get the DTC's:

1 - Turn the ignition switch to off & run/stop switch is to run .
2 - Push odometer reset button in & HOLD .
3 - Turn the ignition switch on and then release odometer reset button . The background lighting should illuminate & the speedometer needle should sweep it's full range & indicator lamps ( battery , security , low fuel , check engine and cruise ) should illuminate . The word "DIAG" should then appear .
4 - Push the odometer reset button once and you will see the selection menu "PSSPtb" with the first P flashing .
5 - Each letter represents a area of the diagnostics module . The module that is flashing is the one you are going to check . To move from one letter to the next you must push the odometer reset button one time . ( from P to S to SP to t to b and back to P , ect ect )
P = ECM
S = TSM/TSSM/HFSM
SP = speedometer
t = tachometer
b = ABS codes
6 - To get the DTC code in a area of diagnostics you should PUSH & HOLD the odometer reset button in for 5 seconds and the release . If there are any DTC's the code will be displayed or the word " none " will appear if there are no DTC's . Push the odometer reset button again to view any additional codes if they exist .
7 - Record the codes.
8 - If DTC's are NOT to be cleared , press and release the odometer reset button . Part #of module will be displayed .
9 - If DTC's are to be cleared for that module , PRESS & HOLD the odometer reset button until " clear " is displayed .
10 - Press and release the odometer reset button to continue to the next module .
11 - Turn the ignition switch off to exit the diagnostic mode .

Hold it close to head dont touch and then turn the bike over if it arcs youre gettin spark

Does your bike have a key fob that only let you start the bike when the key fob is present?

Pull your CKP and see if there's a lot of steel shavings/debris stuck to it.
If so, clean it off and reinstall it.
See if that gives you spark.

What's a CKP?

Also check the HDForums.com web site. For a faster solution take the bike to "Motorcycles Unlimited" Don't go to the stealership!

Did that and no shavings just oil was on sensor. Went ahead and bought one. Installed it and does the same thing.
What next?
