Hard to Crank
Good afternoon everyone, question on a 2011 Dyna Wide Glide, it's a 96 CI FI motor with approx 10,3xx miles.
The issue that i'm having is when i ride the bike and the motor gets to be warm enough (idling in traffic, stoplights, about 10-25 minutes of city riding at about 30-55 mph) and then i get to my destination, the bike will sit for about 15-30 minutes and then be just about impossible to start, it will crank and crank and crank but never start. let it set for 5 seconds, try again, nothing, crank crank crank...let it set for another 5 seconds, it will crank crank and the fire up without issue. This happened on several occasions, but not all the time. I can't seem to pin point when it will happen or what leads it to happen. The first time it happened we road for about 45 minutes before our first stop of 15 minutes, then wouldn't start right away. The last time it happened, i road it about 15 minutes and did the same thing. Never occurred during the summer and just started when the temps dropped (so for Texas, that's about 55-60 degrees). can't say it's the battery, cause it will sit over night just fine and fire up the next day just fine, no hesitation at all, or after work, sitting all day, no hesitation at all. It has me baffled. It does have a warranty on it, but wanted to get some ideas before i dropped it off and they kept it for a week trying to figure out what was causing it, cause like i said, it's pretty sporadic , but as often as i ride (everyday) it's bound to happen once a week at least.
I think that's about all the details i can think of.
