I don't think so but if [ANYONE] hears of such please let me know. If you drop this one and it is damaged to the point that it no longer works, you are in for a big nightmare. H-D, instead of just replacing the cap with the same key code, replaces the whole ignition system! At least that's what happened to me. I was lucky in that while my cap would no longer fit properly there was no visible damage and I reported it defective under warranty. I posted a similar warning under a different thread.

Dealer quoted me roughly $150 for the Labor. Plus any additional parts. Cost me about $35 for 2 Clamps (Crossover Tube) and the Switch/Gas cap. I'm hoping tomorrow the weather will be good and I can do it.

Got it DONE!!! Took me about 2 1/2 Hours. Part of the problem was Diagnosing a Key On, Cranking. Found the Starter Switch harness was pinched. Took it apart and spliced the wires together with a pair of Heat Shrink Butt connectors. Hosed the off the bike when I was done. Now I need to get to the gas station and refill the tank. Later I will Polish the bike.

Bought the replacement Switch and Crossover Tube clamp last night. About $15 with Tax. The Switch Dealer Cost was around $6.88. Sold it to me for $12.xx. They actually had it in stock. Cant do it right now. As I just filled the tank yesterday. 3.44 Gallons. Think I experienced the "Lag and Leap" on the way to the gas station. Put over 70 miles since fill up.


Had to stop at Wawa as they were the closest. So I put about 2 oz. of Lucas Fuel Cleaner in the tank before I left. So far I haven't had the Start then Stall issue.


On a Side note, Tractor Supply has some nice gas cans. Bought the 1 gallon unit to pump the fuel into. And not terribly expensive at $12. I was able to pour what I pumped without spilling.

I Replaced the Crank/Run switch today. Dealer told me roughly $130 Labor. I did it myself in about 20 minutes. On a bad note, I discovered my Seat Hold Down Screw is missing. Huh??? It was there when I left it for the Oil Leak repair. Tech had to lift the gas tank to remove the Cylinder Cover. Now I need to go back to my Chapel. 2nd item I found Missing, Or not installed. 1st was the Hold Down Screw for the Air Box. Now a Missing Seat Screw. Guess I need to find a new dealer to fix my bike.

Isn't there only one screw holding our seat on? That's scary.

Only 1 Screw. And a Tongue and Groove on the front. Where it meets the gas tank. Harley charges $2.xx for that screw. If I had to replace it myself, I would've gone to HD. And bought an Allen Screw and washers. Really mess someone's day up if they tried to steal the seat.
