Customer Question
2010 crossbones while riding speedo...
2010 crossbones while riding speedo quits working and excessive back fire. Come to a stop the bike has stopped running. Turn off the switch and turn back on restart like nothing ever happened. Speedo works fine no back fire. Only second time this has happened just recently replaced battery. Because of this last year I do keep on a battery tender.

Hi there, It doesn't sound like a battery issue.it's more than likely the ignition switch or it could be a bad wiring connection at the fuse panel.What it sounds like is it's loosing all electrical power which would cause fuel to not be burnt from lack of spark but ignites from compression and heat which would cause the backfire.These problems are pretty hard to find but loosing all power can only be contributed to the main ignition switch and main fuse.
