Define what you mean by would not start.I rode about 250 miles a few days ago, then rode 25 miles this morning, tried to start it up about 5 min after I shut it down and bike did not start.. I cleaned the spark plugs, but still nothing, any ideas?
I grounded the spark plug on head, but no spark..Make sure that your plugs are grounded to the block when you're testing them, or they won't spark. Sometimes it's hard to test a plug simply with the "do I see a spark?" test.
But, if you're certain that the plugs are good and you're certain that you're not getting a spark, then it has to either be in the plug wires, the ignition coil, or the wiring to the ignition coil.
It is probably not a plug or a plug wire. Simply because it would be very unusual for both of them to die at the same time. If you had one dead cylinder and one cylinder that was getting fire, it would at least sputter and try to start.
Do you smell raw gas after cranking the starter for several seconds?
^^^^^^ THAT ^^^ I have an '02 FLHRCI and if you've inadvertently hit the FOB while in your pocket you probably armed the security system. Press the FOB button several times with the ignition on. My two cents.Do you have a security system on the bike? If the security system is armed and you try to start it it will flash the turn signals.
After reading through the post again, it does sound like your alarm system is armed or something is wrong with it.
For some reason, I thought that if your bike was armed that it would start and then just die immediately.
Does the alarm arm and disarm when you push the button on the fob? If you don't have a siren, then the signal lights should flash.
