streetglide help

Recently went to the lone star rally and reved the bike a few times. Not sure how far to the rev limiter and then it died. Now it wont start. I'm getting spark but seems faint. I dont have ant dtc codes either. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Try unplugging the fuel line from the tank then plug it back in and make sure it's locked in place.

Replaced crankcase position sensor and does the same thing. I can smell fuel but no spark.

Not yet. But there isn't a spark. Figured it's something electrical.

You can't check spark on that engine by pulling the plugs out and grounding them. The ECM needs to detect compression to fire the plugs. You have to use an in line spark tester.

Disconnected battery for ten minutes then reconnected. Checked the diagnostic for codes again. Two show up now. P1351 & P1354. I guess I need an ignition coil.

Not especially ! Front or rear ignition coil open / low indicates an open circuit or low voltage to the coil.

If you tested spark by removing the plugs and grounding them to the heads that could have caused those codes.

Did you check all the fuses yet ?
