Customer Question

Looking for a Harley Expert. I have a strange electrical issue
JA: What is the model/year of your motorcycle?
Customer: 2001 fat boy
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Are you a Harley person? It's my 1st Harley. Different than my other bikes ?
JA: No. I'm the Motorcycle Mechanic's Assistant. Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Air idle control valve making noise and draining battery with key off.... That's why I think I need a Harley expert. Something strange with the fuel injection system
JA: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?
Customer: Runs fine. I just got it so not aware of a gas problem

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.My info is somewhat limited on your model here but I had seen no one else has responded and would like to see if I can help here.If at any time you feel that I cannot help with this please let me know.

If you have not checked for any shorted or damaged wires on the bike this should be done.I have seen shorted and damaged wires cause this type of fault here in the past needing repaired or replaced.If this is or has been checked and found to be o.k. let me know so we can continue.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,a rating of 4 or 5 is appreciated.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
