Customer Question

I have an 08 road king last Friday I luckily only got 4 blocks down the road and heard a pop on the right side aost like a back fire but not quite then it stalled and won't start. It turns over but that's it, I've replaced coil, plug wires and plugs and still the same thing any suggestions?

Welcome to JustAnswer

Is there a spark?

Purely for diagnostics :- Try spraying starter fluid into the airbox with the choke OFF & throttle open a crack. Does she fire up momentarily?

Has your road king been laid-up for more than a couple of months, or at all, before this problem occurred?

Sorry to have to ask what may seem like stupid questions, but it is obviously difficult diagnosing problems remotely & I dont know how proficient a customer is or what they may have done already. So I need to ask stuff which may seem obvious or unrelated
